Re: Off we go.

Back home, yay! As usual, there are lots of things to do and catch up on.

My email server got somewhat confused, as I normally use Eudora in POP mode, and on the trip alternated between Mail in IMAP mode (neither of which I’d ever tried before) and webmail. Somehow it started to refuse deleting messages, duplicating them instead on the server, a process that would have gone exponential had I not shut everything down in time.

Still, later today the email situation should be normalized again, and I’ll try to reread the thousands of messages since the middle of May just in case I missed something important.

If you emailed me in the past 3 months and I didn’t reply, please resend? Some message may have gotten lost in the process.

Now at the train station in Kiel (Germany). In a few hours we’ll go back on the ship for the last leg of our trip, visiting Stockholm, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Talinn.

Kirkwall and Lerwick were great and the Scots very friendly. I have over a hundred selected pictures ready to upload but little time to do all before coming back home. Hopefully at least a dozen will be up today. More anon.

Typing this in an Internet café in Reykjavik, Iceland. Very nice town! Yesterday we’ve also been to Akureyri where we visited the thermal baths.

Everything’s going very well. Before going back to Kiel we’ll also look in briefly at Kirkwall and Lerwick in Scotland. Hopefully some more pictures will be ready for publication by then…

Found a nice Internet café at Honningsvåg, Norway – the world’s northernmost town. Cold and windy.

Our Norway stops before this have been in Geiranger and Gravdal; both very beautiful places, at least in the summer. Tomorrow the ship leaves for Iceland (stops at Akureyri and Reykjavik) and then goes back to Kiel over Scotland (Kirkwall and Lerwick). More from there, I hope…

Update : I managed to upload a few more pictures from the start of our trip; no time to tag them properly or describe the location, though.
