Posted 17 Jan 2014I have now done the survey. Rich I am with you here. I think there were some areas which could have been developed more. In my area, I feel we could do with more regional meetings or talks etc; however since we have a monthly special interest group meeting about once a month, it's not too bad. I couldn't get this across.
I'll still take the £200 though.
Posted 14 Jan 2014I for one, cannot see why prices in that part of the world are so extreme
Possibly because wages are so high? As I said, I travelled on a cruise. All the crew were local. I met and spoke to a crew member who had just started work on the ship. She worked 24 days on 24 days off. Her husband worked the opposite shifts. They had just bought a Kr3Million (£300,000) house. So, two people who were on the bottom rung of the ladder financially on a shipping line are able to buy a house like that. (I know the parents didn't help). Reason - high wages.
Posted 11 Jan 2014That's a good comprehensive guide Rich. I went on a cruise up the coast in October with the Hurtigruten shipping line and got lucky in that one evening we saw the Lights. As I was on a ship the photographs I took are not too sharp, but at least I can say that I saw them. I will echo most that you say about your trip including the friendliness of the locals and the cost of everything. I managed to get cheap flights with Norwegian Airways so I can only guess it is the usual thing, it depends on when you book and when you want to go. I would recommend Norway as a good place for photography, in all seasons, just remember it will cost a lot. But as Rich says, get over it!
Posted 7 Jan 2014Maybe not meetings as such, but they do have Events. Click Here - perhaps you could go along to one of them and sound out if there was any interest in having other types of meeting.
Posted 16 Nov 2013I'm with Robin here Si. Just my opinion but I think the sign is too dominant. The boat alone chugging through the water - beautiful colour by the way - would have been enough.
