      Re: Seagull away a while . . .

      My last hours in Norway.... Bergen is blue-sky sunny!!!!!....how annoying that the Fløyen funicular is closed for maintenance, and I don't really have time to walk up and down...but I've done my customary Beffen trip...photographed Nordstjernen with Beffen ....

        What a pity, the funicular is closed at such a perfect weather! I remember that i walked up, when i was there the first time. It was not as long as i thought. But anyway, with a flight waiting later i also wouldn't walk up...

        As more as you will return in summer!!
        Have good time and a safe way back home.

          Back on time last night at EDI, remembered to collect D's duty free shopping (iPad 3 ) and now allowed to watch the Malaysian F1 Qualifying live on TV...distractions, distractions....
          Thanks for following me and NX...will endeavour to get back in action on her thread as soon as possible

            I'm having a blast this morning, reading up on everything you all have been doing the past two weeks while I have been on a restricted access to so many ways of communication.

            Thank you all for not forgetting me and for "keeping an eye on me"... making sure I stay out of trouble...

              Writing this here, although I'm not away for "a while" for another 10 days yet!!
              But after being away all day yesterday, and now out again today on a field trip, I thought I'd better explain a somewhat quieter Seagull than usual.

                      Met up with CVF member Linray at Heathrow last night and we all enjoyed dinner together (except Sea-Troll who was too shy or something! ). We next meet up in OSL as Hurtigruten were only allocated so many places per flight, and so I'm doing a Scandinavian tour LHR - CPH - OSL - Longyearbyen today! Just hope my luggage keeps up with me! Oh well, it all worked out cheaper than I could have booked myself...

                        Let's keep fingers crossed so that your luggage keeps even steps with you and Seatroll.

                            The Copenhagen connection was no problem and once boarded on the plane for Oslo I actually looked out of the window and saw my luggage going on to the plane! This was fortunate as we'd been told to reclaim checked-in luggage in Oslo and clear customs, as is always the case even when luggage is tagged to a further destination in Norway.

                            I might have thought it was lost in Copenhagen if I hadn't seen it, because it turned out that sometimes Svalbard is an exception to the rule and indeed the flight to Longyearbyen also left from International rather than Domestic departures in Oslo. Good...not because of the access to duty-free, but because I could go to eat at Yo Sushi!!!!!!!

                            Arrived in Longyearbyen around midnight ...in the sun. Had a walk this morning...interesting to see what's the same and what's changed since I was here in 1999. Just back at the excellent Spitsbergen Hotel for lunch, after which there is a sightseeing excursion which terminates at the ship!

                              I am glad you made it well there including your luggage.
                              Our weather prediction for today is 34°C and we are expecting some Thunderstorms for tonight, so the air is quite muggy. Too hot for me in my office under the roof!!
                              So enjoy your fresh air at 30 degrees less! Have a good day!
