To the countless fall attempts, walking on ice

So, we took a flight next to Tromsø! The moment we got to cruising altitude, the captain announced that there were NLs on our right. That instant, everyone just plastered their face out of the window. Haha, can you imagine, everyone leaning to the right of the plane, gives you the perception that the plane is flying right heavy. haha ok just a thought, but yeah, unbelievable! It was that strong!!!!

We were only like at Oslo and below the arctic circle, but we caught a glimpse!


And guys, norwegianair is unbelievable, they had wifi on the plane! Like what right? haha and i was blown away by Smørbrød at the airport (Paul i still blame you for it) Too busy eating it that i forgot to take a picture hahaha omg wait i did take a picture, and this is how it looks like!

The best sandwich in the world guys, lobster, shrimp and salmon.

Landed and when we got out, we saw the coolest barriers ever, long exposure photography time!

This was taken handheld, as i was just too lazy to take out my tripod. We were just carrying so much stuff, a kanken full of food from Krakow ;)

We then proceeded into Tromsø, route march style :D
This was the view we got, when we were arriving!

Pretty bad picture, due to the immense light pollution here in the city! There was so much ice, we were typically crawling and trying not to slip! The hotel we stayed was awesome! AMI hotel! I highly recommend this y'all! Breakfast was good! We had such a nice view out of our window into the city, but just unlucky that it was cloudy all nights, that we couldn't see the NLs ):

But anyways, got some nice pictures of the place!

Midway along the bridge, crazy winds i must say!

The view of Tromsø from the other side.

The church.

We had a nice dinner or reindeer and cod too as well!
Reindeer with lingonberry

Cod with shrimps

Then, we decided to go out for a walk in hopes of seeing the lights. Guess what, even with the amount of light pollution in Tromsø, WE SAW IT


The picture is orangey due to the light pollution in the city. But yeah, it was for a good 15 minutes of so. Took my breath away.

And when it finally ended, i got a photo of the Tromsø :D
