Hi everyone.
Thought you might like an update of our travels but if you don't then baa humbug!

We have now left Norway and are heading towards Iceland. This is the first of 3 sea days before we arrive in Akuyeri.

Having felt virtually no movement en route since we left Newcastle due to calm seas, we have a bit of sea swell today but nothing very much. It is still cold on deck as you would expect and there is a thick sea fog that comes and goes making visibility patchy- not that there is much to see at the moment.

Our overnight stay in Longyearbyen on Svalbard was nothing short of magnificent. P has some great photos of the brilliant sunshine taken at midnight- we were so lucky to have had such good weather.
Unfortunately, the rain returned yesterday and it was considerably cooler. We had booked a 2 hour trip with a local taxi company, which proved to be great value as we only paid £25 each and saw all the local sights. Needless to say, the ship's excursion was considerably more expensive.

I hope all is well at home and that you are enjoying warm weather.

The truth is that I did a word document to family and friends before I went on line, sent the email then edited the doc to post in the forum.
I obviously made a complete hash of it when I copy and pasted it into here. :oops: :oops:

I suspect that a certain someone will have a field day with that particular blunder but I have grown a very thick skin over the years. ;)

The important thing is to be able to laugh at yourself and I certainly did that yesterday. :lol: :lol:
