Friday, and it’s time to start packing…..not our favourite activity! We have all the details from Discover the World including our tickets. I have phoned them twice with questions which they have answered with patience and good-humour. The weather on the Lofoten Islands looks quite good in the middle of the week with temperatures hovering around freezing. My vests and marble blue long-johns have duly arrived from Damart which means I shall be receiving catalogues, offers and naff gifts for the next five years! So, now excuses, I’d better get the cases out. In case anyone is wondering where the Lofoten Islands are, here are some maps.
