We've made it to Norway, but now we're stuck in Oslo. We had to change planes in Reykjavik and the baggage handlers decided to put only 1 bike on the plane! After a great deal of searching we found the 1 bike. We went to the baggage claim office and after a good deal of clicking we were told the other bike was still in Reykjavik. We had a train reservation to Bergen the next day and were assured they would get the bike to the hotel in time for us to get to Bergen. So now we sit without the bike and the train has long left. No available train seating until Sunday. So a flurry of changing reservations and now we continue to wait for the missing bike. At least we'll get a chance to adjust to the time difference and site see in Oslo!
Retirement was so fun, I decided to do it again! After 8 years in Maine and 8 summers working as a bicycle mechanic, it's time for a change. My friend Anna retired and we decided to do a Nordic Tour. Our plan is to bicycle up the coast of Norway to Kirkenes and then south into Finland. We'll bike down to the head of the bay of Bothnia and then into Sweden. How long? We want to be home for the holidays!... full info
