Norwegian Coastal Voyage
on 26 September 2008
My wife and I have done the Norwegian Coastal Voyage round trip (Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen) twelve times, and are booked for our thirteenth. We very much we'd had the benefit of this excellent book for our previous voyages, and are looking forward to taking it along next time. Quite frankly the voyage itself stands well on its own merits. What this book does is to add a number of extra dimensions, and is an invaluable aide to understanding more about the scenery, the history and the culture. If you read it before a voyage, it'll help you get the most out of the trip; if you read it after a voyage, it'll bring back beautiful memories.
This book is a labour of love, and to those of us - and there are many from all over the world - for whom the Norwegian Coastal Voyage is a wonderful (and repeatable) experience, it is essential. If I were allowed only two books as a desert island castaway, Berit Liland's book would be one of them.
Buy the book, and take it - along with binoculars and camera - on the voyage.
