I won this coffee-table book in a raffle at this year's BookCrossing Unconvention in Nottingham. It contains lots of lovely photos of Northern Norway with accompanying text in four languages.

Twenty-odd years ago I went on the Hurtigruten, from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes near the Russian border and back to Bergen, and this book brought back some great memories. Maybe I should do the trip again, as I can see from the photos that things have changed. Places in the book that I remember from my trip include Torghatten, Bodø, the Lofoten Islands, Trollfjorden, Tromsø and the Arctic Cathedral,Hammerfest, Honningsvåg, Noth Cape, Vardø and the star-shaped fort, Vadsø and Kirkenes.

Norway is definitely on my list of places to visit again.
