Hurtigruten

Since 1893, Hurtigruten (“The Express Route”) has been carrying freight and passengers along the Norwegian coast, from Bergen to Kirkenes and back.
Bodø is of course an important port. Here is one of the 11 vessels in the fleet, MS Nordnorge, coming in on its northbound voyage.
In 2011, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation broadcasted the entire northbound voyage by the same vessel. It lasted 134 hr, 42 min and 45 sec and is the longest non-stop live television documentary ever, and a Guinness World Record!

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems. I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other. I trust the reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for 20 years.
