On the MS Artania - 01.07.2014

Hello Mum,

 

I am on a Cruise-Ship. It is the MS Artania – and here you see my cabin.

 

/

 

/

 

Today was an important day – Poseidon came onto the ship, because we crossed the Arctic Circle. He was the man in green on the balcony. Some of his friends came too – strange people.

 

/

 

Many of the humans went there to get a ‚Polartaufe‘– polar christening – we didn’t want it.

 

/

 

But I received this certificate that I crossed the Arctic Circle!

Tromsö, Norway – 03.07.2014

Hello Mum,

 

We arrived in the morning in Tromsö, the sky was grey, but I was sure that it would be better later this day.

 

/

 

There was an icebreaker, but fortunately we didn’t need it.

 

/

 

Later that morning we went to the botanical garden of Tromsö. There were many beautiful flowers from different mountain regions of the world.

 

/

 

This one was really big.

 

/

 

And this one was really blue.

 

/

 

I found a small waterfall.

 

/

 

And a lovely lake.

 

/

 

Do you know this cotton grass?

 

/

 

In the afternoon we went onto a hill and had great views over the city and the surroundings.

 

/

 

/

 

This was funny!

 

/

 

Another view to other mountains.

 

/

 

Our last stop was at this wonderful church, called Eismeerkathedrale – Arctic Cathedral.

 

/

 

/

 

What a wonderful day!

Spitzbergen, Norway – 05.07.2014

Hello Mum,

 

We spent a day on the sea and today we arrived in Spitzbergen – and visited the Magdalenenfjord – a great place.

 

/

 

There was a big glacier behind me.

 

/

 

A few minutes later the sun came out – and it even looked better here.

 

/

 

/

 

The sky, the mountains, and the glacier – everything looked great!

 

/

 

We couldn’t stop taking photos.

 

/

 

After two hours we left the fjord.

 

/

 

I went onto our balcony and had great views there, too.

 

/

 

Goodbye Magdalenenfjord.
