    I have nothing but love for this place. Helped me out when a hostel I had planned on staying in was no longer in business. The front desk staff have been very helpful in answering questions and giving me information about the area and how to get around. Heated bathroom floors, wonderful views, and a great location (close to coffee shops, restaurants, a nice walk along the harbor, etc.)
    P.S awesome internet and the continental breakfast is wonderful.

    Yesterday was a bit chaotic, grab a coffee and let's chat.
    I arrived in Bodo (pronounced similarly to 'Buddha') around 12:45pm, perfect timing to make my way to the boat and head to Svolvaer. They didn't have an information station at the airport like I had hoped, so I ended up asking a car rental lady what is the best way to get to the dock. …

    ... south, we followed various roads, along waterways and surrounded by impressive mountains, stopping as the whim took us to photograph these amazing vistas. We wound our way to Heningsvaer, a beautifully quaint town with wonderful old buildings and fishermans huts and with another of those magical mountain backgrounds.

    We finished up at an old shack further down the road towards Leknes. This old shack, pictured, is one we had come across months ...

    ... in as baggage works. The fight was blissfully quiet and the 8 1/2 hours went relatively quickly.

    The next flight was from Hong Kong to Helsinki. Again relatively smooth. The only issue was the positioning of the the flight attendant call button that I seemed to press somehow every time I moved. Every 10 minutes while trying to sleep I'd get some flight attendant scurrying up saying "Can I Help ...

    ... back to the hotel the sky was the familiar navy blue which we'd seen a lot, we decided to find a cafe and drink some hot chocolates and wait for the museum to open at 6. The museum was a treasure trove of war memorabilia collected by one guy over many years there was information and artefacts everywhere including creepy dummies dressed in various uniforms of bother soldiers and prisoners- our guide had told us the uniforms had other things attached to them - ...

    ... will just see how close they can get without you noticing to play, he also told stories of how the other whales in the area are more likely to attack! We were nervous but excited and also keen to get to sleep we had another 5.30am start the next day. So that leads us to today- we left the hotel at 6.15 and got on the same ferry that brought us over and then headed up to the fjords where the orcas are which were around 2hours north. It was on this journey I asked our guide (the one ...
