For me, the best part of the trip was seeing the views. A lot of days the sky was very overcast and I did not take many pictures. On the few days that the sun was shining, I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and took many pictures.
Some of the beautiful scenes:
A small town we visited. Notice the waterfall in the left of the picture over the boat.
This sunset is at 10:30pm. Long, long days.
Going into a narrow fjord.
This lighthouse was built in 1880. Before it was automated in 1987, the lighthouse keeper lived on the bottom floor. Today, this lighthouse can be rented for vacations. It is lit from July 21 to May 16 every year. It is not lit during late spring and early summer due to the midnight sun.
Chuck and Andre checking out a boat coming to our ship to pick up tourists.
We saw waterfalls galore.
Looking back at the fjord we just came through. Notice the waterfall on the right side of the fjord.
This scene is as we arrived back in Bergen. Overcast and rainy when we left and overcast and rainy when we returned. We were told that this is typical weather for Bergen.
We finished our cruise up to the very tip top of Norway and back in exactly 12 days. A very fun adventure.
We disembarked, hugged Ronnie and Andre goodbye. They were heading to Spain for more travel. Chuck and I headed back home to Cuenca, but we did spend one day in a charming town in the Netherlands before we flew out of Amsterdam.
I will share that adventure on our next post.
Have a great day.
