Mom and I met up in Berlin to begin her 5 weeks of vacation traveling with me.  We knew we’d spend some time in Berlin, then venture off to another country, before concluding her visit in Munich towards the end of October.  I didn’t realize it, but mom had been researching Norwegian cruises as a possible option as we had talked about trying to search out the Northern Lights.  So, bing, bang, boom, before ya’ know it, we’re catching a flight to Bergan, Norway to jump a ship that will take us up through the fjords and into the arctic circle!  Wow – cool detour!

Here’s our route up the coast of Norway and some pictures of our time so far…

The Resistance Museum – Bendlerblock

There were numerous plots to kill Hitler in the WWII era.  Secret groups banded together to form what was known as “The Resistance” to rise up against the Hitler regime and his deplorable crimes against humanity.  If you saw the movie Valkyrie or read up on WWII you are familiar with this.  Unfortunately all plots to kill Hitler were unsuccessful and those that were found to be a part of The Resistance were killed – many in this square shown in the picture below.  They paid the ultimate price standing up for what they believed in.
