For some reason I hadn't realised when we booked that hold luggage wasn't included in the price and we had to pay a hefty supplement at the airport. It would be worth making this clear at the time of booking.

Flew to Oslo

The hotel was excellent. Must be good because we had members of Interpol staying there with special police on motorbikes and security men in attendance. Your part was as usual, of the highest standard. To cap it all the weather was glorious on all our sightseeing days round the fjords, visiting the Maritime Museum and the Viking Centre. A beautiful country with lovely people
