  • Another new member from France

    Hello CV!

    I have discovered your forum thanks to new member Toilapol. It is also thanks to him and his travel stories that I have caught the "Hurtigruten" bug and a taste for high latitudes...

    I have traveled twice on the Coastal Express (April 2006 onboard the MS Lofoten and December 2010 with MS Polarlys), and twice on the MS Fram (Feb 2009 in Antarctica and September 2011 in Svalbard). I am getting ready for a new trip aboard the MS Lofoten (love this ship) departing Bergen March 3rd.
    You can find accounts for these trips on my blog in my signature (I apologize it's in French only, you can maybe use Google Translate) and for the first MS Lofoten trip here: http://hurtigruten.terremer.net

    I am a French woman and I also live in Brittany (90km south of Saint Malo). I already really enjoyed reading some of the discussions here and looking at beautiful pictures, and I hope I can contribute a little bit in the future!

                    Thank you all for your warm welcome.

                    kiki42, I am indeed close to you, actually I have a sailboat in Granville (near the Mont Saint Michel) and I sail to the Channel Islands at least once a year! (and my nickname comes from the roman name of Guernsey).

                      Great to have one more sailor around here!
                      May I ask what kind of boat do you have? I sail a Swedish 25-footer, a Albin Express. It's by the way named 's/y Tiger'.

                        My boat is a traditional wooden sailboat (based on the traditionnal fishing boats from the Mont Saint Michel area), 23 foot-long, a gaff-rig cutter, one of a kind! She is 60 years old this year and still in very good shape!
