From Arctic London to Arctic Norway!

Added 11 Feb 2012
Following a very early start, we head for Heathrow Airport for an efficient check-in with Scandinavian Airlines. We're slightly late taking off and there's also a head wind so we're slightly late arriving in Oslo. Here we commence the 1,000 metre dash! Passport control first, then a long corridor, a long escalator, pick up bags, up in a lift, drop off bags, through security and off to Gate 21, where some lovely ladies are kindly holding our flight! We all make it and 40 minutes later we're landing at Bergen. Our two deluxe coaches are waiting at Bergen Airport and we drive to the centre of town for some free time at the Bryggen. Richard and Dawn drive to the ship terminal to drop off the luggage. We get together again at 3pm  for a Bergen city tour with local guides, Inger and Carly. All agree they do a great job! Arriving at our ship, the Midnatsol, we embark, settle in, enjoy dinner, and take a well earned sleep! See you tomorrow!
