A Reindeer Kind of Day

I recently had a visit from a friend from the States and got to play tourist for the day. Thankfully, it was before the corona virus shut the world down.

Tromsø Arctic Reindeer Experience
My friend,Abby, was thrilled!
We rode on a sleigh pulled by reindeer!
Our hosts were a Sami reindeer herder family, and the experience was authentic.

If you want to know more about this lovely excursion, let me know. After 17.5 years in Norway, it was high time to play tourist for a day!

The “Blue Hour”

In the north of Norway, we have an expression that describes the special light that occurs during the polar night season. “Blåtime”, directly translated “the blue hour”. Today it was breathtaking!
