The Far North of Norway

Thought for the day…”Freedom means the opportunity to be what we never thought we would be.”

“We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.”

Two more photos from the far north of Norway (70 degrees north).    At this time of year, there is 24 hours of daylight, as the sun never goes below the horizon.   Whilst the Norwegians may get excited about having 24 hours of daylight, it is not in fact very useful, because you still have to sleep.  And the other side of the coin is that in winter it has 24 hours of darkness (the so-called ‘eternal night’)  so it must be extremely depressing then.  Seen here in the photo is one of the many cruise ships which visit at this time of year, this one the ‘Mein Schiff’ from TUI Cruises.  Built in Finland at a cost of some 360 million euros, it carries around 2500 passengers, so is much smaller than the 6000+ passenger ships that cruise the Caribbean.   Seen here in Honningsvag, Finnmark, Norway.

Photo of the Day Thursday 28th February 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day…”Why do they call a TV program “Who wants to be a millionaire?”  when they know that the answer is everyone?”

“Your right to speed is your power to stop”

A photo today of the cruise ship ‘Brilliance of the Seas’ belonging to Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.  The cost of this ship was around USD 350 million for the 2500 passenger ship.   At around 90 000 tons, this is dwarfed by the mega cruise ships such as the RCL ‘Allure of the Seas’ at 225 000 tons and  its 6296 passengers.  At full speed, the 6 engines of the Allure will use about 27 000 litres of diesel an hour.

Photo of the Day Monday 10th September 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…..” Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future.”

Off to Stockholm, Sweden for the photo today and another of the many cruise ships to visit the city.   The RCL Brilliance of the Seas was in Stockholm recently, although it will soon be heading across the Atlantic.    12 decks and 2500 passengers, and a crew of 859.   At around 90 000 tons, it is not the largest of cruise ships, but still a good sight in Stockholm.
