Here I am, back to normal.
This has been an amazing trip; I met loads of interesting people, seen amazing places and got closer to the North Pole (one of my goals).
It was a very long trip but it was all worth it.
And finally, here are some of the pictures I have taken in Tromsø.
Right now, I’m on the train that will bring me to Boden first and then Umeå.
My return has begun; this has been an amazing trip.
Met so many friendly people and seen landscapes that are likely to be the most beautiful places I’ve had the chance to see in real life.
Tromsø is a quite small town; I believe the best of it can be experienced while being on one of several hills/mountains in a clear night.
With no artificial lights, the sky is breathtaking, especially if the Aurora pops up during the stay.
I’ll soon post some of the few pictures I have taken (I’ve seen most of the best landscapes from the moving train), just to actually share a part of the Arctic experience with you (yes, you).
13.56, Abisko station; 1500km away from Stockholm.
The sun has almost left the sky, only very dark isolated clouds are visible right now.
I left Luleå this morning, a very snowy morning, at 7.50; and passed by Kiruna at noon.
2 hours and I will be in Narvik (Norway), where I will, hopefully, see and photograph the Aurora.
The forecast seems to be on my side: a pretty much clear sky and high magnetic activity for tonight.
As I am typing this quick post, the sky is now dark; what an amazingly short day.
Bye for now.
