Norwegian Coastal Voyage: LIVE

Like a lot of folks this year, vacation and travel plans have probably been curtailed due to tighter finances. More people than I can count have told me, wistfully, that they’d love to go to Norway this summer, but just can’t afford it. It’s a common tale, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the beauty of Norway.

If you haven’t heard about this yet, you need to check it out: Norway’s state broadcaster NRK and Hurtigruten, The NORWEGIAN COASTAL VOYAGE is making history with 134 hours of round-the-clock LIVE television coverage of the voyage up the Norwegian coast. The journey is considered the “world’s most beautiful voyage” by several top travel publications.

This is an amazing fete in that it’s 5 and a half straight days of video being broadcast! The scenery is awesome and it’s definitely worth checking out. I know it’s not the same as seeing it all in person, but it’s definitely better than a post card and, if what I’m hearing is correct, it will be watchable over and over again via the web. This means you can visit Norway any time you like.
