Alberta boy spotted in Norge


Yup, MIA. Missing in Action. I've been on the road and it hasn't been O Canada!

For the past week I've been cavorting around Norway. My journey started in Kirkenes and will end this afternoon in Bergen.

The main part of the trip has been aboard the MS Polarlys, one of 11 ships in the Hurtigruten fleet.

It's not a cruise ship, but a working ship, and we've stopped at 34 ports of call.

On board was a friendly Canadian from Calgary.

Although not of Norwegian descent, he fit in with the Scandinavians and other passengers on board.

I fly home to Seattle tomorrow via Amsterdam.

I'm looking forward to being closer to the 49th Parallel.
