Last weekend a DFDS minicruise from Copenhagen to Oslo gave me the opportunity to visit --at last-- one of the great pieces of Scandinavian architecture: the Oslo Opera House. I disembarked the CROWN SEAWAYS at a very leisurely 10am and had to be back at 16pm. Plenty of time! And the [...]

How to photograph the northern lights? That’s the theme of the voyage. When writing these lines I am sitting in my cabin 619 on Hurtigruten’s NORDNORGE after a lucky evening with a starry night and plenty of aurora borealis, while we are sailing to Kirkeness, the last Norwegian port before the Russian border.
