    I'm heading to Darmstadt for a meeting at EUMETSAT (European weather satellite HQ) and ESA. Hope to resume the posts in the FRAM thread when I return after the weekend.

    Comment


      I had a rather complicated week after getting back from the weather satellite meetings in Germany. Anyway, I am now aboard AZORES but not much internet access. Tomorrow I'll be in Flåm where we are tendering, so I'll probably have to wait to let those going on the train excursion to get ashore first. The following day will be Olden, and the one after that Bergen. Got to return to the ship now .. Cheers everyone!

        Dear Seagull: I had hoped to meeet you in Flåm tomorrow.. But yesterday my house was filled up with summer guests. So I can't leave them. Not even for you. So this is really bad luck. Hope to meet You sometime in the future!

        I've just taken a photo of Costa Romantica ...that ship is the reason we on Azores are tendering

        Dear Galaxy,
        It will feel special to be returning to Olden ...I really feel I belong after celebrating 17 May with your community on my Fram trip earlier this year (Yes there will be photos of that in due course ...promise!)
        I expect You will be at work tomorrow, but if you happen to see someone from the Azores walking around in a Fram blue jacket, and of course taking photos, do say hello 'cos it will be me!

      I don't say this has anything to do with our Seagull but hope she is OK:

        I don't have Seagulls schedule in my head, but she was in Flåm Monday, and then it should be Olden Tuesday. This incident happened Wednesday. So let's hope she is safe and well.

        Yes, Sigve's right. Seabourn Quest was the other ship in Olden, Azores is in Bergen. BT article seems to confirm which ship though.

        Azores and Seagull was in Olden tuesday 21 yesterday it was Britannia and Seabourn Quest who was in port.

      I’'m back after a good trip aboard MV Azores - thanks for your concerns and your good wishes. I ran out of time to post here while I had internet access in Bergen before the crossing back to Hull.
      Since then D has ended up in hospital but is now home, though as well as the Crohns playing up, it seems with a further chronic problem (of the kind that less straightforward folk generally refer to as “the waterworks”).
      Seems to be feeling better today for he is happily installing Windows10 on umpteen computers ...including mine at his place. So this brief "heads-up" is probably all from me for the next few days!

        I'm sorry to hear of D's problems, Cecilia. The Chrone's is quite enough without anything else. But at least it hasn't stopped him getting stuck into the technical side of life!

          Hi Cecilia from me too. Hope things settle down fairly soon.
          Cheers,

              I'm back! ...but with a lot of things that must be done before settling down to look at pictures - mine anyway. But I just HAD to look back right away at pakarang's photos of Kotor and Dubrovnik, in particular. I enjoyed them so very much at the time, and now I've been to these places for the first time myself - and from aboard Serenissima too! Thanks to our ever-inspiring pakarang.

                  It's been a complicated month, but I am nevertheless getting away for a week, and no ship involved! - but perhaps mascot Sea-Troll's uniform might give you a clue!

                    That seems to be fun! Have a great Race-time!

                  You are on a banking holiday (the SANTANDER-clue)...?

                      So when can we expect to get a race report and more from Abu Dhabi?

                    I'm on my travels again ...kind of "doing a pakarang"!!!!! ...already in London Heathrow and heading for Bangkok.

                      Have a safe and pleasant trip!

                    I'm back in cold wet windy Scotland. As I'll be at D's over the holiday period, I've only just got a moment to post a seasonal greeting in the appropriate thread before braving the storm to buy a turkey, mince pies, cake and suchlike. No time for home baking this year, but I should certainly be able to manage a tasty Thai recipe for the turkey left-overs!
