    hello everybody, a new entry from the Netherlands

    hi there,

    this week i discovered this website, when i was googling
    on ms Finnmarken, a ship which i have been monitoring
    a bit since the news came that her charter would end and
    return to Norway

    usually i post on cruisetalk, however Europe and more
    specifically Hurtigruten is little known to them

    last year i enjoyed watching NRK's TV Hurtigruten trip
    of almost a week, i was watching day and night, and the
    heartening receptions of the Norway people made me
    longing for a return to that beautiful country

    when i was young my parents took me on holiday some
    10 times to Norge, so i even understand a little Norwegian

    i'm 48 years of age and live together with my wife in
    a small village (3500 hab.) 35k north of Amsterdam

    i drive a Saab, am fond of my Dutch sheepdog and
    2 cats, i like to photograph, reading, watching
    cycling and cricket, i have travelled a good deal
    in Asia where is my favorite destination Nepal,
    no ships over there but nevertheless!

    i used to work in travelindustry and later as a
    social worker but i'm at home since 1997
    due to some mental illness

    you are all wellcome to respond...

    best wishes
    b. Joe

                      hi there,

                      thanks for all your kind words


                      it seems to me that there is a very friendly atmosphere here on the forum
                      unlike i ve seen on many other fora

                      at the moment we're enduring some winter at last in Holland

                      the coming days i will come out with the camera and show some
                      pics of the neighbourhood i live

                      best regards,
                      b. Joe

                        I'm struggling with the same - winter... darkness and lack of colors in the nature.

                        Today however, there is sunshine here, but the -13 degrees is way too cold for me so I chose to sit inside.
