Next morning awoke again to find it cold and raining (seems to be the theme to this trip), so cancelled our planned kayaking trip and caught the early ferry through the Sognefjord to Gudvangen.
We hired a car and drove firstly to the town of Undredal.
From Oslo we took a 4 hour train journey across the countryside to Mydral. The countryside is tall, tall pine forests with clearings containing a group of traditional houses known as 'communes'.
It's been an exciting time so far, we almost didn't start the journey as, at Nelson airport, we found that there was a problem with Mich's tickets in the system!
Since then the trip has been a comedy of errors, with flights delayed, entertainment systems not working, and extreme weather. Yes, we landed in Hong Kong just as Typhoon Nuri hit!
The last few day have been spent on the coast cruising the 3000 islands of Ha Long Bay with Griswalds Vietnamese Vacations.
Today has been spent out in a few of the local handicraft villages.
