HELLO! It’s been so long since I’ve updated this blog!
Life over the past year has been consistently busy and honestly I’ve gone back to scrapbooking as my primary form of memory keeping these days (I love it as a creative outlet – what’s not to love about playing with pretty paper and stickers?!). But every once in awhile, friends will ask when I’m going to update my blog and I realized I missed having an online journal of sorts. So here I am!
For my first post back, it’s going to be an epic photo dump to catch you all up with 2015.
When I last left off, I was working on a trip report for the Northern Europe cruise we took in May/June. In short, it was AMAZING. St. Petersburg was a dream come true (more details here). From there, we visited Helsinki and Stockholm — definitely need to go back to spend more time in these incredible cities.
As we left Stockholm, we sailed through the archipelago. Such a lovely view!
The sun doesn’t set until VERY late in this part of Europe. Loved having so much daylight. This was around 11pm! Gorgeous.
From the Baltics, we sailed to Norway. First stop was Stavanger where we took a boat excursion to see Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock. Afterwards we spent time walking around Gamle Stavanger, the Old Town.
In Alesund, we took an excursion to visit Trollstigen, the path of the trolls. Here’s just a portion of the hairpin turns. Driving down this craziness in a huge motorcoach bus made me nervous!
Geiranger was my favorite port in Norway. The sail in and sail out through the fjord (the inspiration for the movie Frozen!) was incredible and this view from Flydalsjuvet took my breath away.
