... room and then whisked up to a board room and given a lecture on our days activities the next day- snorkelling with orcas!! We were told that orcas are typically around 10tonne and 5-8m in length in this area, they mainly feed on herring as there is an abundance here and there are currently around 700 orcas that feed here in December and January each year. The guide who had a very strange northern accent when he spoke English ensured there was nothing to worry about- that orcas won't ...

... not much to do. Thanks for nothing, Lonely Planet Guide Book, I can't wait to burn you when I get home. So with this, I pass on some advice : if you're going to come to Norway, I highly suggest seeing the Lofoten Islands, because they're beautiful, if nothing else 2) If you're going to come to Norway, I highly suggest having lots of money, like, maybe win the lotto and then come to Norway.

We spied a sign: Hurtigruten! And wandered over to the only door in the bleak, uncompromising building. Opened the door, walked in through the ubiquitous airlock, and entered a warm, but sparsely furnished room of about 25 square metres with a finely constructed and polished timber counter in one corner. Across the room we could see a door that opened onto a couple of coffee tables each with four easy chairs around them. What's the fuss ...

... sense, it may have also spurred the Viking forays. It was interesting to learn that only a very small proportion of the Norwegian population were Vikings - in the violence, occupation and pillage meaning of the word. Most Norsemen and women stayed at home and farmed or fished. Only those with an adventurous spirit or the bored or the bloodthirsty - or the olefactorily oversensitive - sought to be a Viking. Perhaps, after all, hundreds of years of bloodlust and conquest were spurred ...
