Goodbye, Norway … For Now!

NS Bergen 3

So, that’s it for Norway. But, there’s no sense of ‘crossing it off the list’; we still have plenty of things we’d like to see and do there. A return visit in Spring or Summer … a snowmobile ride … reindeer stew … whales. And, we didn’t see Stavanger, or get a very good sight of the Aurora.

I think cruising is the best way to go about it if you’re on a budget, or just want to see as much as possible in the time available to you. That’s the way Norwegians usually got about from place to place … that is, when they stayed in Norway, instead of venturing further afield for a bit of looting and pillaging! And, it’s the way they still do; the Hurtigrute ships still ply between Bergen and Kirkenes, calling at various ports on the way, and are quite willing to take holidaymakers as well as their usual day-to-day trade.

Of course, to wrap it all up, here’s the slide show. You won’t have seen most of these pictures yet, but it’s possible one or two slid in that I’ve already used.
