Not So Wordless Wednesday: Norway #7



The Stratsraad Lehmkuhl is the pride of Bergen...one of the largest and oldest (built in 1914) square-rigged sailing ships in the world, and is in pristine condition.  In addition to being able to sail on this ship, you can even hold events, such as weddings and dinners, onboard.

That photo makes me think it was cold outside! I love the starkness -- and what a cool ship.

Oh fun! Being from the Boston area, I've seen a lot of old/historical ships come into port. This is very neat. Thanks for sharing!

I have a mental image of everything in Norway being pristine. And cold.

Were you able to tour it? what a gorgeous [almost 100 year-old] ship!
