Today I'm at the world's end - either literally or metaphorically. A tiny Argentine city of  Ushuaia  is located at the very end of South America on the island of Tierra del Fuego. It is a kind of outpost for many tourists going to Antarctica. The majority of cruises to the...
After leaving Finsness, the MS "Midnatsol" headed toward  Tromso , our next stop, and sailed through two rather long and narrow straits - Gisundet and Grotsundet. These straits separated from the mainland into three big islands - Senja,  Kvaloy and Ringvassoy. The way from...

After having a short rest at the hotel, we decided to make another hike - a walk through the city. During recent visits to Lithuania and Estonia, "the night theme" was perhaps the most vibrant part of the exploration of the city - both Vilnius and Tallinn are brightly lit at night...
