2019 Norway Mail Run to the Aurora Oct 1-16
October 1-16 Bergen to Kirkenes and back. The Norwegian Mail Run...

The Hurtigruten mail ferry travels up and down the Norwegian coast, visiting 37 different ports, some for only a few minutes, some for several hours. They have long-haul passengers, who, like us, have cabins, and short-haul passengers just going between ports. There were lots of Norwegians, Germans, Brits, and a few Americans.  Travelling off-season means few tourists (and fewer kiddies).

Iceland 2018

September 12-22 Iceland

Visit the Album  Circumnavigating Iceland was the plan. Our local ferry turned into a bus tour when the propeller fell off the boat.  The tour company's offer to refund and send home those who wanted to do that had the effect of eliminating the complainers.  We had a half empty bus full of intrepid adventurers and we were able to go to places the ship couldnt' have gone.  Gotta roll with it!

2016 Canada (Calgary, Banff, Jasper)

Go to Album Another "off season" jaunt up north, although Banff and Lake Louise are always over-touristed. Still, elk mating season and misty glacial landscapes make for good photos.
