Eric and I are cruising the Norwegian Fjords! This is Eric’s dream trip. He has wanted to see the Fjords for many years. I think I would of wanted to for all these years, if I had any idea how breathtakingly majestic they would be. Every turn was more beauty, more awe! Our cameras did not catch the magic of the Fjords in any way. Seeing them in person was something I will never forget. It was like seeing a movie where you can’t believe the scenery. Below we share a few of our experiences through photography as we made our stops along the way of our cruise on the Norwegian Jade from our favorite spot on the ship, our balcony. Also, the port stops were fun and quaint. How I would love to live in Norway if it wasn’t so cold half the year! I’m usually not at a lost for words to describe places, but for Norway I am. Just beautiful!
Our first port stop is Alesund, Norway. Alesund is at the beginning of the Fjord, and is also named Norway’s most beautiful town. We toured the stunning town and Art Nouveau architecture on board the City Train Tour. It was both fun and informative of the town history and culture. It took us to all the spots we wanted to see, and told of spots we wish we could of traveled to. As we traveled through our first Fjord, we both were stunned by how picturesque and gorgeous Norway is! As I said above, the photos just don’t do it justice, and since we were there during a rainy week, I’m sure sunny photos might help with sharing how just magnificent this country really is. How green the mountains, and how blue the water was.
