Norwegian’s new concept: Nano-trips.

landing_03

In mathematical terms nano is one billionth of something, so a nano-trip must be one billionth of a “normal” trip. If we assume a “normal” trip to be two weeks and one extra weekend (to be generous) – that is: 16 days – a nano-trip would be all of 0.0013824 seconds, if I’m not mistaken.

Even in non-nerd-speak, the nano as a prefix is currently most often used in excited talk about nano-technology, a lot of it from people who have very little idea what they are talking about, but I think most people have grasped that it concerns things that are so small it’s hard to see them.

Blink and you’ll miss it.

Just what I want for my next adventure.
