      HELLO!!!
      Ship's Internet wasn't working yesterday so I couldn't continually update you on the canal times, but you spotted me anyway!!!!! And YES OF COURSE I was up in the middle of the night for entering the canal and have even managed some nighttime photos!!!!

      Now Discovery is near Dover....got to say goodbye as my last few minutes of Internet time is about to run out....lots of love to you all.

        Can't wait to have you back on board another fine vessel (CaptainsVoyage) that is...

          It feels SO good to have been thought about.
          Now I can't wait to be back with you aboard the good ship CV.

          I was thinking of you so often Captain, wishing I somehow had you in my pocket to give me a running commentary on the docking, pilot boats, use of tugs ...seems so much more complex than on hurtigruten!

          As you may have seen via Gowalla I'm now at Southampton airport awaiting late afternoon flight to EDI.
          Lunch with two of the university lecturers (Russian history and Russian Art) from the cruise who happen to be from Edinburgh.

          My Internet access was a bit patchy from the ship, and I had only time for quick check-ins at cafes and short stops when ashore as there was SO MUCH to do...see...photograph! I'll hardly know where to start when I get back, but am expecting my 366's, a ship tour of Discovery, and Kiel canal photos to have some priority!

          Love and hugs meanwhile...

            I've arrived safely back home....but it may not look like it for a few days, now that I no longer have Discovery's fantastic Crew to do everything for me!

              Welcome home Lady C... .

              Can't wait to see your images. I will be away for 8 days starting tomorrow morning 9 AM.... not far, just to Korsfjord for duty.

                Me too want to welcome you back, Cecilia!!!

                And as J-O here, I'm also known to have a short fuse when it comes to patience, so your images and small stories from your cruise are very much welcome as soon as it is practical for you...
                When it comes to the ship itself, I will see her and take her pictures Saturday 18th June when she arrive Kristiansund.

                Welcome back!

                  Just to say that a ship tour with lots of photos of MV Discovery has started to appear on her thread!

                  Eventually ( ) photos of ports and places visited might appear in The World Pilot Guides, and shippy things in their appropriate threads.

                    July trip

                    I've been posting in the Trondheim and Kristiansund threads on these travels, but I just wanted to add the latest update to this Trip of Three Ships: Korsfjord, Nordlys....and now a "first"....I've been on a SUNDBÅT !!!
                    So happy!!!!!!

                      I arrived back in Scotland last night (Wednesday 13th) after meeting E at Copenhagen airport, and then some time in the city centre after her flight check-in.

                      Now the frustrating news...fast internet completely down here until Monday or Tuesday earliest, so you will have to WAIT to see any photos in such threads as Family Gatherings, Hotel room views, Korsfjord ferry, the Kristiansund threads, and not forgetting the 366 photo project!

                      Minimal communication here meanwhile, almost as if I was still away!...

                        so you will have to WAIT to see any photos
                        HOLY!!!!!....., this will be THE ultimate test of my patient. If I'm ok Monday/Tuesday, I can take anything....

                          It was WORSE than if I was still away travelling! I did very well on the move in Norway with the Norwegian sim card for my iPad. Back here with D’s cable modem not functioning I had to lend him my only means of using my iPad so he could do some actual work….

                          Anyway, at last all is fixed …it wasn’t that the gas mains guys had disturbed the cable either, but was simply solved by remaking the connection at the tapping point down the road where some work had also been going on recently.

                          I’m about to start posting in FAMILY MEETINGS and photos from the FAMILY ALBUM …

                            And maybe in the Kristiansund-thread also...? I'm so eager to see your way of looking at this city

                              I’m going to be away all next week. ….in Oslo of all places!….for this year’s meteorological satellite conference. I should be able to keep somewhat in touch with you all however (following the success of using my iPad in Norway earlier this summer!).

                              With detailed arrangements having been completely out of my hands, I was not able to plan ahead and suggest meeting up with any of you dear CV family members in the Oslo area…it’s not that I won’t get any free time…just that I don’t know when it will be!!!!! However, it has just become apparent that I should have free evenings on Tuesday 6th and Thursday 8th, so welcome to send me a PM should you happen to be around central Oslo then.

                                Welcome back to Norway, the country is ready for you!

                                Hope all your travels and adventures will be just as good as usual, and please let me wish you safe travels as well!
