Arena Travel and Rowan partner up....
|We made it! at the top of Fløyen, Bergen, Norway|
(Arena are know for their tours based on specific interests - their catch phrase is "Passionate about your passions" - they offer Quilting Holidays, Elvis Holidays, Antique & Fine Art Tours, Heritage & Literary Tours, Official Queen Events (for Queen Fans), Connoisseur Chocolate tours, Bridge Holidays and Iron Maiden Fan weekends - so of course Knitting could only be next LOL!!!)
Knitting in Tuscany, Italy - lovely - some day perhaps.
Knitting in the Shetland Isles - sold out almost instantly - a 2nd tour is now being offered....in case you missed the first one
and Northern Lights Knitting Cruise in Norway - well, just the ticket - so I booked the Hubby and I and we packed up our cold weather wardrobe and off we went! (This link takes you to the page for the 2012 tour - already on the calendar and ready to book!)
Toronto - London to catch up with the Arena tour, then London - Stavanger - Bergen - where the tour stayed overnight in a lovely hotel right on the water (the clarion Hotel Admiral, Bergen) and started our first full vacation day with a coach tour of Bergen to show us the lie of the land.....and then we were free for the afternoon.
Alan and I decided that the Fløibanen Funicular was a must and it was just a couple of blocks from our hotel - so off we went!

|We also wanted to wander through the Hanseatic wharf |
- we could see these buildings from our hotel room across the water.
We were starting in Bergen working our way North to the Arctic Circle "Hunting the Light".
