Barcelona, a photo a day

Norwegian Gem


This is by far the fastest way to go around town! Located at the cruise port, this helicopter company offers flight over Barcelona. You can also reach some hotels this way. You arrive with your huge cruise ship, like the MS Norwegian Gem, and 10 minutes later, you’re in your suite! Amazing. And very posh…
I’d love to take one of these copters, to make my own Arthus-Bertrand kind of photos!

PS: Thanks to Vogon Poet, here is the Norwegian Gem in Livorno, Italy.

  3. I'm with Steffe on this one. First off I'll bet it isn't cheap, and I'd really enjoy the walk or taxi ride.

  4. Just excuse me if I add a link to a post from my blog, but probably it's funny to see the difference in approach. And one of the ship is the Norwegian Gem.

  5. Well, some people live life very different….
    It would have been nice to have a tour with the helicopter 🙂

    (Re:your question if I live close to the decorated house? ) It takes about 10 minutes by car. The house (in the photo) is fairly close to the centre of Stavanger.

  7. Deve ser muito prático, confortável e, principalmente, poético. Isso se tivermos com muita grana e estivermos muito bem acompanhado. É claro!

    Abraços,

    Furtado.

  8. I guess you would have to be rich and kinda lazy to travel that way! What's wrong with a bike?

  9. A cruise ship and a helicopter — very posh indeed! The illustration on the cruise ship reminds me of the game Bejewelled 😀

    Love your new header image!

  10. I saw some of these mega-huge cruise ships when I was in Castell Montjuic but didn't see the helicopter! I guess some of us will have to stick to the cable car for the aerial views. Lovely photos, bring back happy memories of my visits there.
