Well, my Mom and I are, at least. We board the Crown of Scandinavia in Helsingborg tonight and arrive in Norway’s capital tomorrow morning around 9:15. Then it’s a full day in Oslo before we board the ship again for the return trip to Sweden. We’ll be back home around mid-morning on Sunday.
Dr. Darling decided to opt out of this mini-cruise adventure, largely because long ferry trips just don’t hold that much fascination for her. Mom and I, having lived most of our lives in the land-locked midwestern U.S., are absolutely charmed by the idea of travelling 14 hours each way on a ship where we will have our own little cabin, complete with bathroom and shower. Should be great fun so long as I take my anti-claustrophobia medicine!
