Disclaimer: Due to the number of comments that have been received it has been felt necessary to clarify that this trip is in no way based on "The Long Way Round" which the authors of the trip were not aware and nor was it first broadcast of at the time at which this trip was drunkenly conceived. The authors of this trip would like to distinguish their intended trip from the journey undertaken in "The Long Way Round" in that unlike Charlie Borman and Ewan McGregor they are not experienced riders (they have both only been riding motorbikes for just over one year), they are not receiving sponsorship and they will not have a support crew with them at any point on the journey. Just to avoid any further confusion it has been thought that it would be helpful to point out that Tom Horovitch and Peter Caley are both fictional characters and are not famous film stars.

Bergen, Norway - 1626 miles from London

We arrived yesterday evening in the port town of Bergen and decided to stay for two nights in the YMCA in the centre (picture of our dorm left). It was still light here at mid-night last night and we are told that as we head north there will be no darkness hours.

The north of the country sounds pretty crazy. We were told by a local last night that you can only tell whether it is day or night time up there by whether the inhabitants are sober or drunk.
