The tour leader and stunt linguistics

I was so pleased that a passenger took the mike from tour leader Aud Ræstad during the farewell dinner, to thank her specifically for doing such an excellent job of organizing the excursions and informing us about highlights en route, and of managing to keep calm, no matter what happens.

I've already written about stunt filleting, and the tour leaders on board give us daily demonstrations of stunt linguistics. In addition to regular announcements in Norwegian, English and German, I've heard Aud Ræstad speak French with a passenger, and on earlier trips I've also overheard conversations in Spanish and Italian. I am impressed!
