Yes, the 'story' as such was a bit blah, but the narrative of the journey was inspiring. Having seen a small part of the fjords, I'm now encouraged to see more and to walk everywhere, with eyes open, more often! And Svalbad is now on my 'must do' list. Some of the treks were undoubtedly much tougher than described, though, and not to untaken lightly. I'll definitely try some more Lonely Planet books.

Not the most compelling story but it really made me want to go back to Norway and do some walking around in the most stunningly beautiful place I've ever been. Not the crazy hard and painful hikes described in this book, though. I just want to soak in the beauty of the outdoors all day and then relax with a nice meal, a hot bath and a good book.

That is to say, 'read' to somewhere in the middle, and then I had to return it to the library because it was too postcard perfect and romantic blech.
