Postcard Perfect Geiranger

If you haven’t read already, I recently went on a fabulous cruise to Norway and this port was my absolute favourite stop of the week, the beautiful village of Geiranger. Geiranger is a small tourist village in Western Norway that will give you the perfect postcard picture of the Fjords. The picture really speaks for itself and doesn’t even do it’s breathtaking views justice.

Molde Photo Diary

One thing to note about Norway – the weather is unpredictable and completely contrasting in each area. After a beautiful day in Bergen, we arrived the following morning in a wet, grey Molde. We had no activities booked, although I’m not sure you’d see much from the view point with all those clouds, so really all we wanted to do was get off the ship to stretch our legs. On our little wander we found a beautiful Cathedral and a just as lovely flower shop.

First stop: Bergen

Bergen is based on the South-West coast on Norway, surrounded by the fjords and mountains. As our cruise was in September, I wasn’t holding out much hope for the weather as Norway is a pretty wet and windy country (although still very beautiful) but to my surprise, we had full sunshine all day which made for amazing views from the high points and at one point I was even feeling a little hot.

What to expect from a cruise

At the end of August, I was lucky enough to set sail on my very first cruise to the Norwegian Fjords for a week on a ‘girls holiday’; when I say girls holiday, I mean we took my nan and her wheelchair. I was full of excitement and nerves as we prepared for the cruise as I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I’ve heard so much about the posh formal wear and tonnes of food that I didn’t know how to prepare for the week. Well let me tell you now, if I could summarise my cruise in five words it would be: food, alcohol, food, food, stairs.

My top 5 eateries in Paphos

So I have just returned from the beautiful island on Cyprus. It is one of my favourite holiday destinations that offers culture, beaches, sunshine and plenty of food & cocktails. Rather than going all inclusive, self catering is always preferred as there are so many mouth watering restaurants available to try. Whilst I still have much of Cyprus, and Paphos in particular to explore, some of the restaurants there have provided the best food I have ever eaten.
