Part two of my travels in Norway begin today: A two week sailing expedition from Tromsø along the Norwegian coast to the Lofoten Islands with Vertical Shot Expeditions.
I have only been on a sailboat once before, a week long journey out to the Channel Islands national park off the coast of my hometown of Santa Barbara, CA. I really fell in love with everything sailing and ocean during that trip. And even gave thought to taking some classes, something that still remains in the back of my mind should I find the time one day. So it seems appropriate that my next trip on a sailboat will include Norway, one of my other loves in life.
I have no idea what to expect really, but I have no doubt the journey will be nothing short of epic! I just hope no early autumn gales decided to pass our way. I don’t want any, ‘I’m glad I’m not on a boat today!’ type weather during the trip. But the North does what the North will do, and hopefully I’m prepared for it.
I wont be posting much from the trip until I’m off the road, but you can keep up with my journey over on FACEBOOK or INSTAGRAM, where I’ll do my best too keep things updated whenever I find a wifi connection.
