Baltics Cruise July/August 2014 - Gothenburg, Sweden.

After leaving Norway we continued on to Gothenburg in Sweden.
We had a walk around one of the many parks.....

and then around part of the city.

We saw the open top bus so decided to get on it to see more.

Big Harbour Canal and Christina Church.

Statue of King Gustavus Adolfus 1611-1632

View from one of the hills.

One of the many marinas around the city.

When we left Gothenburg we sailed out through one of the many archipelagos of Sweden.

The swans weren't bothered about being passed by the ship.

The scenery was so peaceful and beautiful that we stayed on the balcony to watch it as we passed by.

From there it was off to our next port of Tallin in Estonia.

Baltics Cruise July/August 2014 Oslo, Norway

My good intentions of updating more often have gone out of the window. So much has happened since my last post, Flynn going to the Bridge, my cancer returning, but life goes on so I will really try harder to catch up.

Our next cruise was roundtrip from Southampton to the Baltic countries.
The following photos are the approach to Oslo, Norway.

Arriving in Oslo port.

Akershus Fortress The ship docked right next to the fortress and we were able to take a very short walk through it into the city

Eidsvolls Plass a sheltered and relaxing square.
