Into the North
The last time I was in Tromsø, Norway was December, 2003. After a several month program at the University here, I packed up & moved back to the States, after an overall 3 year stint of living in Europe.
It’s nearly a decade later now & the tail end of another 3 year living stint in Europe is fast approaching, this time with my husband, stationed in Germany. With time passing & another move imminent, revisiting places of my fond memories, as well as my friends, takes utmost priority.
So when a dear friend of mine, who I met right here in this vibrant Arctic small city in 2003, asked me to come visit for two weeks in December, the obvious answer was – of course.
Finding good rates this time around meant having some patience & tolerance to spend an evening in Gardemoen Airport (above). I was amazed to book my connection from Berlin to Oslo for 30 Euros (check in baggage included). The Oslo to Tromsø connection was not quite as amazing a fare, but all in all not bad deals or outrageously priced (Norwegian Air).
Excited to be arriving! Above, on descent into Tromsø.
