Larvik, Norway was the first stop on the mystery cruise and we disembarked the ship on a beautiful Spring day. Here are some of my favourite things of Larvik.

The sea is probably the most important resource that ties so much of this area.

In nearby Stavern is Minnehallen,  a memorial for merchant marines.


Ship building  was, obviously, very important to this area and the area that was used for this is setup for tourist visits. It also has a dark side because it was used during WWII as a concentration camp for prisoners of war and Norwegian resistors.

There are also a number of islands to explore and enjoy.
