Norway - Perhaps it is a bit out of the way from the rest of my little European dream trip, but how could I resist going to the home of the Viking culture? It has also always been a dream of mine to try to the very north of Norway and see the Aurora Borealis. I can't imagine that anything in the world could ever be more beautiful.
The RP FLIP is a 355 feet (108 meters) long vessel designed to partially flood and pitch backward 90 degrees, resulting in only the front 55 feet (17 meters) of the vessel pointing up out of the water, with bulkheads becoming decks. This makes the ship mostly immune to wave action. It is frequently mistaken for a capsized ocean transport ship.
