Tromsø Trip

As the arctic “heat wave” continued over the weekend, we had a family day out to Tromsø. We decided to drive (about 2.5 hours each way as opposed to about an hour by boat), and we had to do all the journeys with the windows open as this is the only kind of air-condition available in our old arctic car! It really has been hot, and our friend Tim reports that it was hotter here than in Malta (Mediterranean), and he saw people sunbathing on the beach as he landed at Tromsø airport (it’s worth reading – see May 27th here).

On the way back we had multiple photo stops.
