Temp. -4C

Today started as a very lazy day.  Other than organising my suitcase and vacating my cabin, and eating breakfast and lunch.  I think for the rest of this trip I will only eat a hearty breakfast and that's it.  If I see another 3 course meal I'll scream.....or explode, whichever comes first.  They really fed us well on the ship.  I don't know if that is a way to keep passengers docile, maybe.  I even skipped a couple of dinners including last night because I couldn't physically eat anymore.

The rest of the day was literally just cruising.  Weather wise the last two days have been immaculate.  Fine and sunny.  The views have been absolutely beautiful.  I gave up looking for orcas so my next obsession was spotting lighthouses.  There are many, big and small.

The last part of the cruise definetely was smooth sailing.  I think I could easily live the life of a sailor as after the first day I didn't feel sea sick again.  But I would definetely need a job to do.  I got very impatient just sitting doing nothing for hours.  That's why I kept setting myself a task to find something in the environment.  Plus I always had the internet access as back up to conquer boredom.  You would have noticed that this blog has been very up to date compared to when I was in Helsinki.

We arrived in the port of Bergen at 2.30pm.  My last destination for the cruise but not my trip.  I still have another 9 or 10 days (I can't count) with Bergen, Oslo, Stockholm and Helsinki to go.

I'll say you've been packing it in on the blog writing! So much informative narrative (which is great). . . I thought you were going to test us on it later (teach)!!! ha ha ha

It will be a written & oral exam so start preparing.

I've written more because I've been able to use computers with keyboards rather than one finger typing on my tiny phone screen.

I totally agree - I'm feeling like I'm there too (got my office curtain closed to keep out the warm day so the atmosphere is spot on). I just couldn't concentrate on keeping up with the blog while we were away on hols, so I'm just loving reading about your travels x
