A-Team Cybercruise 1Q-2007 - Oslo-Norway
Here we have the most astonishing collections of boats you can imagine. From the Viking ships or Longboats, via the Kon-Tiki Raft and the Rush Boat RA (known from Thor Heyerdahl's expedition in the Pacific) to the polar ships Fram and Gjoa (the latter was for many years in San Francisco before brought "home" to Oslo) to all kinds of fishing vessels and trade vessels. And several thousands of private leisure boats in Marinas around the peninsula.
As a country close to the Artic, it's only natural, we have had more than one to explore both The North and South Poles. I'll not rip up in the race for the South Pole. But instead focus on an expedition through the North West Passage. The sea route north of Canada. With the vessel named Gjoa. It was brougth back to Norway from San Francisco, after years of neglecting there.Meant nothing. But the expedition has given a proof of the Canadian - Norwegian realtionship with a remarkable, symbolic gift. Let the pictures tell. Read the text at the second picture below.This was the first leg on the Oslo sightseeing. Have some food and beverages before we continue. Or visit my co-host RennyBA.
And do not forget who's the Captain, Mrs Lifecruiser.
