Birkwood - Answered a Question by Brewer (26 Apr 08 14:00)

We did Norway on QE2 last year. Trondheim we took the bus to the Cathedral and joined one of the english language tours of the Cathedral and the Archbishop's palace. Both excellent value. Tickets can be baught at the tourist office by the Cathedral. In Bergen we took the bus into town and the funicular railway to the top of Mt Floyen and walked down through the woods. Then did the Fantoft Stave church and Grieg's house. At Hellesylt we did the overland to Geiranger, a trip that still makes me draw gasp at some of the views. Truly beautiful. Stavanger we cruised the Lysefjord which was wonderful, we stop off for pancakes and coffee on the way back and go seal spotting. Later we wandered around the town. I don't know about the other places, but there is a lot to be gained by taking a short excursion and then walking round the town, if it's big enough to walk around of course. We enjoyed all our trips. Hope you enjoy yours, the scenery's just wonderful.

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
