      Welcome home to enjoy the early summer weather in the north. (Or is that over?)

      Thank you, ombugge

      Spring weather has been super from we came home five days ago. But it appears that the good weather takes a break for a while.

      Have you and the family settled in after returning to Aalesund?
      I reckon that the climate is a challenge after all these years in Singapore.

      Settling in. Weather is not a major problem. That will not be an issue for a couple of years yet, I have been told.
      Getting an understanding of how all things work here has been more of a problem.
      To get registered as a resident was done in a few minutes and a Tax Card received in a couple of days. To get a Bank ID, which is necessary to do just about anything in Norway, was much more of a problem. Now solved.
      Still trying to find something meaningful to do though.

  • Thank you for capturing and sharing those images of a beautiful ship like the FRAM.

    I never stop wondering how funny the name FRAM looks on the port bow. It looks a bit backwards even though it is not. I can't stop looking at it.

    • Fram is (going to be) featured on the Discovery program called MIGHTY SHIPS, in the newest season.

      I've only seen trailers from the episode, not the program yet - and I have no idea when it will show on TV here.

      Anyone seen it yet?

      Today, I came across this clip about how the captain navigates in icy waters...the link takes you to a Norwegian paper, but the program clip is in English. Therefore, I think it would be OK to share it with all of you.

      Let me know if the link won't play or any other problems you experience.

      • "Fram" was in Tromsø yesterday before she headed for Bear Island last night.

          Marvellous Bengt!
          By the way, I hear those characteristic blue jackets the guests are given on the Explorer Voyages have just been replaced by RED jackets! Kind of more appropriate in a way, given it is more a Hurtigruten colour with the stripe on the ship and logo background.

          And easier to see, both at sea and on shore, in case something goes wrong and people gets lost.

          And most important of all, you have to book a new trip to get one of the actual jackets!!

      • "Fram" outbound from Tromsø this afternoon again and her next destination is Bear Island.

        • Looking at these images, I would love to have been on board for one of those cruises - though, if I were to choose Fram, I would have preferred Antarctica ahead of Spitsbergen. Sad to say, Fram very seldomly comes to Trondheim..... I don't think I have actually seen Fram here with my own eyes as of yet. (?)
