Flam – Our Jump Off Point

Flam

This is our stopping point as we sail through the Fjords. Tiny Village …..300 residents. Tourist stop for those sailing through the Fjords. Many people at the shops, restaurants and craft stores. We poked around in the shops. Found a great wool cap. Perfect Norwegian souvenir. The restaurants were packed. We decideto eat street food. Yummy reindeer stew!

Aurora Borealis

On our return sail,we catch a front window seat. My hope is to see the Northern Lights. As we sail through the Fjords and the evening begins I stand up top searching the sky for my dream. Not like I can book a ticket for this experience….Definitely hit or miss. Many friends and family have seen them…..And once again they didn’t appear for me.
