Subject: Norwegian coast Bergen Line cruise via Norwegian Coastal Steamer
It always amazes me how much we all love travel, yet how different we sometimes view things, which I guess just goes to show that we all enjoy our own travel adventures, though sometimes in different ways. Shirley mentions that one-way on the Norwegian coastal steamer from Bergen to Kirkenes would have been enough. We felt just the opposite: We did it both ways on one of the older ships, the LOFOTEN, and wished we could have stayed on another 12 days and done it all over again!! The interesting people (almost no Americans), the gorgeous scenery, the fabulous food, the intriguing history and ways of life, the explorations of the towns ( both on our own and on the tours) all enchanted us and left us wanting more. We cruised the coast once again, on a Swedish-chartered ship, the FUNCHAL, a few years later and enjoyed it again, doing different things, and, yes, probably would go back again. But what counts is that we all have such a good time and we love hearing what all of you do. Cheers, Pat and Bill in Baltimore
