Arriving

Arriving late at night was one of the wonderful things we experienced on our cruise – silently driving up to the coats and seeing all the lights on, it’s almost magical.
Here we arrived in Tenerife, if I remember correctly…

On board

That was the view from our cabin on board the Hurtigrute Nordlys – it was great fun to see the sea and the passengers.
I remember being woken up to see whales and dolphins ahead.

Malaga harbor

A memory from our cruise – driving from the cruise ship through the Malaga harbor and passing this ship.

I still wonder what kind of ship it was – is it permanently staying in the harbor or sailing the seas?

Hurtigrute Nordnorge

I’m back after a day long powerless – the freezing rain had caused trees to break and topple and take the power lines with them.
Cold and uncomfortable – but the power is back on and I’m back again!

This photo was taken at Molde in Norway from board of the Hurtigruten Norlys – travelling from Bergen to Trondheim. Meeting another Hurtigruten ship was always a welcome sight – and all Hurtigruten ships were welcomed by the people we met.

Tenerife flowers

On our cruise in 2006, we stopped in Tenerife and did a wonderful tour – driving all the way up to Teide and stopping in the botanical garden.
Here’s a glimpse of the garden – flowers and lush greenery all around!

Arriving at Geiranger

Traveling along the Norwegian coast with the Hurtigruten was a great experience – even though we only stayed for a part of the trip, we hope to take the full trip one day.

Here a quick shot of the arrival at Geiranger – we returned via car later and stayed a few days to enjoy the scenery more.

Visiting Casablanca – it was one if the ports we stopped at on our cruise.

We took a tour and of course, the great mosque Hassan II was one if the main sights.

Having never seen a mosque before, we were impressed and tried to get a glimpse of everything – including the baths. Beautiful!
