I’ll give a more detailed summary of the whole trip when I get back but so far I’ve been on an 8 hour evening bus and cruise ship round trip, seen and photographed the northern lights, got lost on Tromsbuss, been up a cable car and walked to the top of the highest point on Tromso Island.
The low lights have all been to do with the cold I picked up. It’s meant that I’m not currently walking over some mountains, which is a blessing in disguise as it’s tipping it down with rain.
I spent most of the day in my room with a very nasty cold. I did manage to go out in the morning to the city centre and sat in the cafe of the Radisson Hotel chatting on Bullet and looking at the web via WiFi. The weather was foul, wet and horrid.
The rest of the group went off for a hike as a warm up for the main hike later in the week. Apparently, up the top of the hill the rain wasn’t so bad.
In the evening I ran a quick slideshow of all the photos taken so far as Leila Battison was flying out the next morning.
