Fast, Normal, Large, Ultra-clean!

On Monday, August 17, at 5 pm, in bright sunshine we departed from Tromsoe. The beautiful fjord landscape distracted us from the worry if all last minute freight sent to Tromsoe really had made its way onboard - but of course everything was already safely stored by the cargo officer and the crew.
