As I mentioned in my previous post I recently went on a twelve day cruise up and down the Norway coast with Hurtigruten. On our second day we stopped in a beautiful city with a population of close to 190,000 people named Trondheim. We only had four hours at the stop which was actually one of our longer times to go on shore. We were allowed to leave the boat at 8:00 AM and had to return by noon. As you can see it was still dark but I got some great photos of the sunrise.
After I left the cathedral I proceeded to get lost which is what I normally do when I am in a new place. Fortunately that is how I find some of the nicest things to take pictures of. On this particular day getting lost was not such a great idea as I only had a few hours to be back at the cruise ship.
Although it was dark when I left at the ship the city was very well lit. The streets for lovely and the people were very friendly. Everyone I talk to spoke perfect English.
One of the things I loved about the city was the colorful architecture. This is the harbor where I spotted the Old Town bridge which you can see below
Some people don't like cloudy skies. Don't get me wrong, I prefer to take photos in the sunshine but sometimes the clouds can be very dramatic looking.
Here I am resembling a Scandinavian snow man all bundled up. Some of us Floridians don't handle the cold weather very well.
On the way back to the ship I spotted this pretty lighthouse which I saw so many of on this cruise. If you've ever thought about visiting Norway I would highly recommend it. I also think Hurtigruten cruises is a great way to see the country - especially if you are the adventurous type of person.
Have you ever visited Norway? If so what parts of the country and what did you like best? Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
