Hello and welcome to our Hurtigruten trip along the coast of Norway. We made this trip in September 2012 and during the course of the 12 day journey, I wrote a journal talking about our experiences on board as we travelled from Bergen to Kirkenes and back again.
These posts reflect our personal journey, what we saw, who we met and what we did each day. We, being me, Angela and my husband Andy. If you want to know about the cabins and the food and how it all works on board, this is not the blog for you. It does not focus on the practical elements. But follow the link to www.hurtigruten.com and I'm sure you'll find everything you need to know there.
We made a very last minute decision to take the trip and in fact secured the very last cabin - cabin 658 right at the back of the boat. The benefits of this were two fold. Firstly it was a mere skip and a jump to the hot tub, which we luxuriated in every day bar one . And secondly, we were very quickly and easily able to get up on to the top deck, so when the Northern Lights decided to grace us with their presence we were straight on it! More of that later.
This trip was on our bucket list for ages and seems to be on the bucket list of many others we told about our voyage. And like all travel, it was a time to discover new places, new people and new experiences. I hope you will enjoy reading the posts and I'd love to hear your comments and for you to share your own experiences of this voyage on here.
See you on board - Bon Voyage!
