    Hi All

    Just a note to say we just got back from a 8 week trip around Scandinavia (with our 2 flatcoats) - amazing trip to do. We did the full 'loop' ie. Denmark-Sweden-Norway-Finland-Estonia-Latvia-Lithuania and Poland. We saw one other GB van on the whole trip (12,500 kms). Anyone wanting the 'low-down' if planning a similar trip just ask.:thumb:

    Please post some details. Particularly cost, weather and essential places to visit.

    We once did the vomit cruise Newcastle/Bergan for a quick look but when the tour guide said they have 300 days rain a year we sort of lost interest. Oh boy did I vomit, I was clinging to the edge of the bed to stop falling out before resorting to clinging to the toilet. That may have influenced my view of Norway. Lovely sight cruising the cost in a snowy November.

    Great trip.. one we would like to do

    adding to Brian's post, can you also give details of sites, wild camping places etc

    I would like to make a Google map up for that route, so any information would be useful..

    do you have a blog or web site ?

    Cheers

    Jim

    Iceland?

    How do you "jump" over to Iceland? Last time I looked the ferry far was £2,300!! ...and ominously, they say "only weather permitting" - I'd reckon that £2,300 for feeding the fishes is a bit OTT or am I missing something?
