Arctic Circle Cruise October 2019 - Tromso Part 2.

After we got off the ship in Tromso we had a wander around the town and nearby areas.
Once again, not many words, it is all about the scenery. All of the photos are clearer if clicked on.



This is an old coffee shop/pub. It is completely built from these big old timbers.




Sami dog sledding camp.


Although the reindeer look wild, they are all owned by the local Sami people.



Yes, I know many of you get lots of snow, but it is a novelty to us. This is the view from our ship's balcony.


The snow had stopped and we were getting ready to sail for our next port of Alta.

Arctic Circle Cruise October 2019 - Tromso Part 1.

Our next call was Tromso, well within the Norwegian Arctic Circle.
Again photos, not words of our morning arrival.
I noticed on the last post that the photos are not coming out as clear as they should unless they are clicked on.

Arctic Circle Cruise October 2019- Aalesund

Last October we took a cruise to the Arctic Circle in search of the Northern Lights.
Our first stop was Aalesund and surrounding area.
No words needed, it is all about the scenery.

Wordless Wednesday - Snow.

I know snow is no big deal to a lot of people, but where I live an inch is a snowstorm so please humour me!
The first three were taken from the ship's balcony in port in Tromso, Norway.
Yes, I even had to take a photo of my footprints in the snow!




Alta, Norway. We were searching for the Northern Lights with our Sami guide/driver and only found a snowstorm that night. The snow plough was not far ahead of us and we stopped by the road when the sky cleared, but no Lights.
There was a foot of snow in three hours. The depth on the side of the road is about three feet. Ivor is holding my walking stick down into it.
It was fun throwing snowballs though!
