In Search of the Northern Lights: Day 11

Feb 16th, 2011 | By

The last but one day of our journey.
When this saga (a good Scandinavian word) began eleven days ago, it was with the hope of seeing the northern lights. To have seen them for 4 nights in a row when so many see nothing of them is great. That we have cameras inadequate to the task of capturing pictures of them is annoying. But then, the colours that the camera show isn’t what the eye sees.

In Search of the Northern Lights: Day 3

Feb 8th, 2011 | By

Into Trondheim at 6am but not a lot of people were on deck to see us enter. The first excursions weren’t leaving for 2 hours. Breakfast doesn’t start till 7am and was full as soon as it opened to cater for those eager to eat before leaving on their trip. Not willing to part with the equivalent of £25 to just walk around the town, albeit with a guide, (who we were told later didn’t turn up anyway) we sauntered off to the centre at about 9am.
