    It’s 18:00, departure time, and the gangway is lifted aboard.

      Goodbye Honningsvåg! It was a wonderful day!

      Comment




        Suddenly it felt strange, this travelling southbound on the familiar route, but at an unfamiliar time of day.


        Next stop: Tromsø

          Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

          I will now post a wonderful comment by our member HurtigruteMartin out of Facebook in here:

          "Dear Cecilia. This voyage-report both here, but indeed at the CV-forum, with your fantastic photos, gives me the feeling of BEE there without physicly beeing there. I have started over and over again on page 65 in the Nordstjernen thread on CVF. And it is just like getting into a hypnotic metamorphosis every time. So my absense of comments and my silence, is just an expression of been "knocket out" by your breathtaking photos, and describing comments. Every morning, I have to ask myself: Have I REALLY been on that Svalbard-voyage, or have I just seen pictures. ?THAAAANK YOU for giving me that feeling ) "

          Dear friend, just keep in mind: Without CV we all never would have met, because Facebook is so superficial and trivial, that is not possible to share the same interest. So i would be glad, if you will post your comments as well here in CV, the source of our friendship!!

          Thank you.

            Thank you.
            I take the liberty to second that on behalf of all CVF members who are NOT on Facebook and have no interest of joining there. Thanks Ralf!!

                Thank YOU, Ralf. I will keep that in mind. As the matter of fact, my intention was to post out my comment / replay here on CVF as well when Seagull`s voyage had come to an end. And also the fact that my account here on CVF had a failure. So I had to get a new password.
                My participation on this amazing voyage has been without logging into CVF with my own account: Only as a "guest" not allowed to post.

                But I so appriciated your reminder, Ralf. THIS PLACE is our home. And THIS PLACE is where we all became friends. And your post was a great reminder what friendship is all about.

                Now I am glad my account is up running again. Love you all.

                  Oh, how glad I am to see these comments. I have said elsewhere that having twice tried Facebook for specific reasons I do know what I am talking about when I say that it bears no comparison with CVF, at least the CVF that I delighted in discovering when I was first invited back in Feb. 2010.
                  I fled FB and have no intention of trying it out a third time. Ralf said of it "superficial and trivial", and that is exactly what I found. Yet more and more CV members go over to it, giving it priority. Just look at the dwindling number of new posts to be found daily on CVF. As I check the index page I wonder over and over - where is everyone? Then I make a guess, not too unintelligent - over on FB, of course.
                  I too have made good friends here, on the forum and off. They are part of my life now, enriching it in a way I could never have dreamed of back in 2010. Thank you CVF, those still here........
                  And, dear Ralf, thank you for making the point.

                      I liked to hear you’re loving the trip, Martin. And yes, there had been a problem on CVF –arcticGateway hadn’t been able to post in here either, though fortunately he was able to receive and send personal messages. Thus a meet-up was arranged, which brings me neatly to the next instalment of the voyage, in Tromsø.

                      – and I hope you will continue to find some nice photos, Tommi, because we hadn’t brought the Honningsvåg sunshine along with us!

                        A day in Tromsø, Sunday 26th August 2012



                        I ended the previous instalment with that strange feeling of travelling a familiar route at an unfamiliar time of day –something that would seem peculiar enough onboard a big cruise ship, but totally bizarre to my Hurtigruten-accustomed soul here onboard a traditional vessel. It was about to get more so – arriving southbound into Tromsø right after breakfast at 8:30 in the morning!

                            I had taken up position portside as we passed the wreck at Tomasjordness, handy for the bridge wing and viewing activity on the foredeck, and ideally placed as Nordstjernen swung round towards the quay. We had not signed up for any excursions that day as I had arranged to meet up with Jens, CVF member arcticGateway. He was not difficult to spot on the quay…I spotted the camera tripod first!

                                Jens rapidly relocates to better view the lines being secured and the gangway being positioned.
