Monday, November 9.
As you can see by the title, we completed a great deal of splinter checking, sitting on the timber, today. We went on what is called, ‘Norway in a Nutshell’, tour.
This involved catching the train from Oslo at 8.25am, given that we did not get to bed last night after coming back from Rondheim until midnight, to Myrdal.
The trip to Myrdal showed a changing landscape, which started out bright and sunny and finished very white.
Look just like ginger bread houses.
Snow is coming fown.
The train stopped at this magnificent waterfall which powers a generator on under the rail line.
Given that the terrain is so steep, there are waterfalls everywhere.
Safely on board.
The size and enormity of this fjord is spell binding. The almost sheer mountain sides, many topped with snow. To think that all this was done by ice millions of years ago is truely amazing.
Here the fjord narrows to 150 metres wide. At its deepest point it is over 260 metres deep.
This is not a trick question. The cup on the left is coffee, the one on the right is tea. Watch the video. Does this mean that coffee is a thicker consistency than tea, or is it that the propellor shaft is slightly bent?😳😳
Snow on them that hills.😳😳❄️❄️❄️❄️
You have probably noticed that it now very dark and difficult to take any photos. This one in the men’s toilet on the boat did tickle my fancy. A million one liners but I am not going there.
Next step was to find ourselves a bed for the night. First hotel we tried was full, station is looking good, but as luck would have it the second one was willing to risk us. After settling in, we grabbed a quick dinner and crashed after a thoroughly enjoyable day. 💤💤💤💤💤
