Land of the Midnight Sun, Norway Yan Zhang Wikimedia Commons
Yes we should have been on the way to the North Cape of Norway & the Land of the Midnight Sun on a cruise today but thanks to the virus we aren't. It was our 50th wedding anniversary last September but due to numerous health problems we didn't make the cruise we fancied in September so we booked to go to Norway this year.
We were looking forward to the cruise as I haven't been to Norway for over fifty years and I've never been that far North in Norway. Nordkapp or the North Cape as we know it is the most northerly part of Europe & is the point where the Norwegian Sea meets the Barents Sea and I have to admit I was looking forward to it.
We're lucky living so far north in England with our lovely long light nights in summer, well when the weather's good it's light until after 10.30pm & the sun starts coming up at about 2.30am. We went for a walk tonight at about 9.15pm & the sun was going down & was brilliant but not the midnight sun.
Never mind maybe next year but it's hard to tell what's going to happen with cruising or travel abroad anywhere. Maybe it will be Scotland, it's about time I went back there.
