...I wish. It has been so hot here and will be for the next week that Norway would be a welcome relief. But I will just have to content myself with a virtual return.
There were a few excursions offered while we were on the Hurtigruten ferry and one that we definitely agreed on was the excursion to the Geirangerfjord.
Here’s what we saw:
|This is our ferry, the MS Trollfjord|
|And here is the Geirangerfjord.|
After our overview of the fjord, we continued on.
We saw waterfalls.
And one of the oldest houses in Norway.
And we survived a trip down this road called the Trollstigen Pass. I love the looks of this road. It looks like it was actually stitched down by trolls.
Our tour guide told us a little story about the Trollstigen Pass. Here it is: A bus driver and a priest were trying to get into heaven. Peter let the bus driver in but didn’t want to let the priest in. The priest was appalled and had to ask Peter,”Why does he get in and not me?” “Because,” Peter said, “when you did a service, everybody in the church was sleeping. But when the bus driver drove his bus down the Trollstigen Pass, everybody was praying.”
It was a spectacular day of sight-seeing that ended in a nice dinner at Quality Hotel Alexandra in Molde where we joined back up with our boat the MS Trollfjord.
