'The Hotel Alexandra is named after our Queen, you know,' said Mrs Whojimaflip and in a manner of speaking she was right. In around 1892 the Kvammes Hotell was renamed after Princess Alexandra of Denmark who married Prince Edward who became King Edward VII. Done so more as a marketing exercise and as the tourists in Norway were predominantly British, you can understand the sentiment of wanting to make them feel at home.
This was the last day of Mrs Whojimaflip's holiday. Everything seemed remarkably normal. She had trouble with the plumbing, was beaten to the Cold Table by the Bunty Sisters and the huge family with the daughter who liked to pile her plate high seven times, and to make matters worse she twisted her ankle and fell into a watery ditch, getting her usual daily soaking.
