I'm finally back home again. It has been an exhausting week with lots of travelling and lots of concerts. I've played 13 concerts in 8 days, and the bands total amount is 19, so it hasn't been any vacation. It's all about getting up, eating, travelling, practicing, preparing for concert, play the concert, get to sleep in a new bed every night and so forth. Not much time to be alone and definately not much time to sew. The only sewing I did was fixing a colleague's torn lining in his jacket pocket ;-). I've knitted a pair and a half of mittens and I did find some lovely alpacca yarn, which I will try.
I mentioned in my last post that we were on a cruise ship. This tour was a joint venture with the shipping company that runs Hurtigruten and most of the travelling were supposed to be done by coastal steamers. Due to changes in the sailing directories, we had to do some of the travelling by bus and speed boat. One day was especially cruel. The bus went 5.20 am and then there was a nearly 4 hour spead boat trip that started at 6.45 am. We had to get up at 4.15 am!
But there was a reward for the early awakening. We were able to watch the sun rise over some of the most beautiful landscapes you can see in Norway. I'm posting some of the pictures I shot that day. Enjoy!
