06/08/15 LN875 If it’s Thursday, this must be Norway? Well there’s a Norwegian courtesy flag flying, so we can assume that distant coast must be somewhere like that.

04/08/15 LN874  We are way behind with our blog! However, we have a good excuse, because no sooner than Nellie arrived in Aalborg we had to do the usual preparations of the ship to be on display. The big event for which we were stressing out was the crew parade through the streets of Aalborg […]
