  1. Dear Marilyn,

    I recently stumbled on your blog and just loved it! My wife and I are doing the return Bergen/Kirkenes/Bergen trip on the MS Nordkapp in December this year.

    We are in our 60s and from Australia. We have been to Europe in winter 7 times already (I have family in Holland) but never as far north as Norway.

    I loved you writing style – especial the tale of the lost hat… I laughed and laughed!

    Your blog is really informative as well and we also appreciate that you included the phonetic spelling of the place names.

    Our blog – prepared in anticipation – is:


    If at all possible, we would really appreciate being able to write and ask some practical questions about clothing etc for the trip. If you are ok, our email is;


    Very best wishes,

    Nick and Bev Starrenburg
