Although I've not played it for the past fortnight, I've been enjoying the game of Skyrim, which does a very good job of invoking a Scandinavian-style region, inhabited by various races but most aboriginally by the Nords.

It was therefore with a certain frisson that some days ago I went shopping for a camera tripod in the Norwegian city of Bodø. Bodø is the capital city of Nordland.

Oddly enough, I didn't see a single local waving a sword in my direction.

We were indeed!

We saw the Northern Lights three times in all.

Oh wonderful.

That's what we got back from this past Monday. MS Midnatsol from Bergen to Trondheim via Kirkenes, Dr John Mason in charge, Inger Carter assisting, off looking for the Aurora Borealis. And boy did we find it.

By the end of the trip, we were so blasé we would look at a green band along the horizon and go "that don't impress me much".
