Lynley Bilby is currently travelling from England to Norway on the Emerald Princess. She will be posting updates throughout the trip.

Can't believe we're nearly ending our Norwegian odyssey.

Today we popped into Bergen.

We meandered in and around the famous colourful Bryggen houses.

They've since been converted into everything but homes.

Lasted only a few moments inside this dungeon.

And did a double take when I saw Minke whale on the menu at the local fish market.

Then we set sail for England only to be at the centre of a late night mid-sea helicopter rescue.

Fortunately the seriously ill crew member was expected to make a full recovery.

Bon voyage.
