Merry Christmas

This may be my last post for a while, much will depend on how good the Internet connection is on Hurtigruten MS Finnmarken.  So, in case I cannot get connected, a very Merry Christmas to all my followers, many thanks for taking the time to like and comment on my increasingly random thoughts throughout the year and all the best for 2015.  More importantly, many thanks for all the wonderful posts.  The quality of television is in inverse proportion to the quantity i.e. the more channels there are the worse it gets – by contrast WordPress always entertains 🙂


Here’s hoping this is what we actually see:

    Guaranteed you’ll love your trip to Norway 🙂

    • northumbrianlight · December 16, 2014

      I am sure you are right – I have previous with Norway dating back to 1963 which ages me just a bit 🙂 Hope to catch you on the return leg.

    Happy Holidays to you, Robin. I hope you get to see some good aurorae. Something I’d like to do some day. Anyway, take care & all the best for 2015!

      Many thanks Graham – hopefully I can share the experience via WordPress but not convinced that Internet connectivity will be all that good.
      All the best to you and yours for Christmas and 2015

    Enjoy your trip, cant wait to see the photos. This is a trip we’re looking at makng ourselves so it will be great to hear about your adventures. Merry Christmas!

      Many thanks Seonaid and all the best to you and yours (and the dogs) for Christmas and 2015. First we have got to find the lights and then I have got to work out how to capture them – I suspect it might not be too easy. We shall see, and then again, maybe not 🙂

  13. LaVagabonde · December 17, 2014

    A fabulous Christmas to you, too, Robin. Hope you witness a wild light show up there. Totally agree about WP always being entertaining (as opposed to TV), and you have been a big part of that. I enjoy your random thoughts and atmospheric photos. Bon voyage!

    • northumbrianlight · December 17, 2014

      Many thanks Julie and all the very best to you both. Thanks for all the first class posts and I look forward to many more in 2015. Now off we go to find those lights – dressed like Eskimos on a very mild day in England 😦

  14. socialbridge · December 17, 2014

    Have a great Christmas, Robin, and thanks for all the wonderful posts in 2014.

    • northumbrianlight · December 17, 2014

      Likewise Jean in every respect. Waiting for a connecting flight at Heathrow as I type. I am reminded of all the reasons I don’t like the process of flying but the destination makes it worthwhile 🙂

    Thanks for being such a reliably enjoyable ‘go to’ blog throughout the year. Best wishes for the season. Thom.
