Waving Goodbye To Norway!

Oh my goodness, the Stampin’ Up! cruise through the Fjords Of Norway has been amazing!  I’m sharing a few more pictures with you as we’re sailing back to South Hampton today and getting on a plane back home tomorrow.

The first few photos were taken from our balcony as we cruised through the fjords on the way between Haugesund, Norway and Geiranger, Norway.  There were beautiful waterfalls and mountains everywhere you looked!

This photo was from the back of the boat as we cruised toward the Seven Sisters Waterfalls near Geiranger, Norway.

As we cruised up to the Seven Sisters Waterfalls, this stunning waterfall was on the other side of the fjord.

The boat captain turned a 360 so that we got some fantastic views of both sides of the fjord!  This is the Seven Sisters Waterfall.  If you squint and count, you can see them all there.

Unfortunately, due to the weather and wind, we weren’t able to dock the boat at Geiranger so we only got to see what we could see from the boat.  Thankfully the “kids” found something to do for entertainment…yep, bumper cards right there on the ship!

They had a great time…and I was happy to be the photographer.

Our next stop…Olden, Noway!  And it didn’t disappoint!  The scenery is absolutely stunning!

This was shot right from our balcony!

We hiked up a little “goat trail” and got a bit of a view from a higher elevation!

After Olden, we headed out to Stavanger, Norway.

We woke up to beautiful views of the city right from our balcony!

Some of the typical “wooden houses” found all over the city of Stavanger.  Love the bright blue door!

After missing the chocolate shop in Geiranger, we found one that had the brown cheese chocolates that we were wanting to try.  Yay!

They had a few varieties for us to pick from.

So, of course, we had to sample a few…and they’re all just as yummy as they look!

We wandered a bit around the town and found the “watch tower” that they used to watch for fires since the houses were all built from wood and all very close together!

We weren’t able to go up in the tower, but caught a good view of the city from the ground below it!

We did a “hop on hop off” bus tour of the city.

Then headed for the Petroleum Museum for a stroll through.  I forgot to take pictures there…but it was an interesting museum detailing the history of oil discovery and the economic boom that it brought to Norway!

A beautiful little island with a lighthouse on our way out of the fjord.

We saw a fun show on the boat on Friday evening called We Will Rock You…I’m not much for musicals, but it was actually pretty good!  Lots of songs that I knew and could sway along to!

Stampin’ Up! hosted a farewell party for us last night…lots of sweet treats and fun drinks!

Mary and I grabbed a quick picture with Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, before we headed back for the night.

It’s hard to believe that today is the last full day of the cruise!  We’ll be at the South Hampton port early tomorrow and then hopping on a plane back to New Jersey.  See you all tomorrow!

Disclaimer:  I’m now required by Stampin’ Up! to add that less than 1% of Demonstrators earn this trip and that my results are not typical.  So there…it’s been said.
