    Ein Nachmittag in Tromsø

    June 20, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Heute in Tromsø waren wir in der „Macks Ølbryggeri“, der nördlichsten Brauerei der Welt. 🍺🍻

    Auf dem Weg dorthin könnten wir heute noch 2 weitere Aufgaben der Photo-Competition erfüllen:

    - A picture of your car being towed by a horse
    - A picture of a Team member hugging a Real bear or sitting on the lap of a Tom Selleck lookalike, with a very impressive mustache.

    Ein ereignisreicher Tag bisher. Nun geht‘s weiter Richtung Nordkapp.

    Trallafitti back on the road!

    June 21, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Heute morgen haben Team wir und #146 (Franz und Micha) den lädierten Herrn Kowalski (Team 17, Trallafitti”) in die Mitte genommen. Fällt gar nicht auf, das er ohne Licht fährt :) . Nun ab zum Teilehändler, der die Spannrolle nebst Keilriemen vorrätig hat. Der nette Verkäufer hat noch einen Kaffee ausgegeben, während Chris pfeifend unterm Bus lag und seine neue Spannrolle montierte. Silke nutzte derweil die Zeit, um den liebgewonnenen Katzenkalender gemäß der Challenge gegen Microfasertücher zu tauschen. Saubere Sache also.
    Wir drei Teams fahren jetzt von Tromsø ein paar Fähren, um unserem Ziel Nordkapp schnell näher zu kommen.

    Huskys kuscheln

    July 27, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Was ein schöner Tag, bei den arktischen Husky. So lieb und verschmust 😍 Dabei haben wir viel Glück mit dem Wetter bei 18 Grad und Sonnenschein durften wir ein paar Stunden bei dem tollen Hunden verbringen. Hätte am Liebsten einen mitgenommen. Nur leider ist es den huskys zu warm in Deutschland, gerade bei diesen Hitzeverhältnissen.Read more

    Karibikfeeling

    July 28 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Ich bin mit Guillaume unterwegs, wir haben uns auf der Strasse getroffen. Er kommt aus Paris und wir haben das gleiche Ziel😉😊 - paast.

    Die letzten beiden Tage waren wunderschön, klares Wasser, weisse Strände, blauer Himmel und die Aussicht an die Berge 😍😍, aber sieht selbst!

    Ansonsten nichts neues..mein Fischerglück hat nachgelassen, dann gibt es halt Nudeln😅. Morgen kommen wir nach Tromsø und leider wird es wieder regnerisch..mal schauen. Die Wetterberichte sind meistens nicht so genau, da die Regionen hier so gross sind ist es schwierig prezise Angaben zu finden.

    Skål! 🍻 Ich starte auch wieder in ein paar Tagen. Diesmal Harz für knapp 2 Wochen. Gerade festgestellt das die nagelneue Regenjacke verschwunden ist. Gleich einen neue bestellt, die wird aber wohl nicht mehr pünktlich geliefert werden. Ich hoffe das sie beim Kumpel auf dem Garten liegt, das checke ich gerade. Ansonsten muss es meine ausgediente Frogg Toggs mit Paketbandflicken regeln. Weiterhin viel Spaß. Ich freue mich wie immer auf den nächsten Footprint. ✌️

    Julian Wiederkehr

    Danke😊! Wohin gehts? Regenjacke ist vorallem hier im Norden wichtig!

    A Morning in Tromsø

    February 28, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -4 °C

    The hotel where I was staying is called the Smarthotel and one thing that's smart about it is it provides a constant supply of free tea and coffee 24/7. That's why I knew I'd get that coffee when I got back so after the warm drink and a bit of a chill out it was time for bed. Ok, I know, coffee's not for bedtime but hey, the hotel wasn't quite smart enough to include hot chocolate in the deal and I was happy, so there you go.

    After an excellent night's sleep, despite that coffee of course, I woke to find it snowing. I had a four hour drive to get to get to Senja and the weather forecast was for snow, so I wasn't pleased to wake to white flakes gently falling past my window. Oh dear!

    The breakfast buffet was excellent and I was joined at the table by a Swiss couple who were in Norway for photography but for a couple of weeks, and had seen the Northern Lights for the first time the previous night, when I got snowed upon. They were trying their luck about 45 minutes drive away and had (sort of) clear skies. We compared our Aurora photos (I had a couple on my phone from Iceland) then went our separate ways. It all made breakfast really enjoyable and was a great start to the day.

    I decided to spend a little time in the city before I began my journey because while we ate our breakfast and chatted the snow had stopped, the clouds parted and it had become a lovely day. Having packed-up and checked-out I decided to take a stroll in the sunshine, pick up a few supplies and only then retrieve my trusty steed from the underground nuclear bunker .... err, I mean car park, of course. I must say though, it did look as though it might double-up for use in times of Armageddon.

    The panorama in this footprint was taken before I had a coffee (yes, more of the stuff) and if you zoom in near the other end of the bridge you can see the triangular church which Tromsø is known for. Soon I'd be driving across that bridge on my way to Senja but at the back of my mind I wondered if the weather would actually be okay and if I really should have left sooner, because snow was forecast after all. Too late to worry about that now!

    Rob, I have been away for a week and so not as able to follow your latest adventures as I would have liked. However, now that I am back I intend to belatedly enjoy your trip.

    That bridge looks a little daunting to say the least! Could be difficult in poor weather but, still, you have a Skoda to get you out of any trouble, don't you?

    Tromsø

    February 27, 2019 in Norway ⋅ 🌬 0 °C

    The plane landed in Tromsø pretty much on time, perhaps even a few minutes early. As the plane descended through the clouds the surrounding air was full of snow rushing by and my first thought was the weather down there must be horrible. The pilot announced the landing could be bumpy due to strong winds then the plane descended to its destination. On final approach there was a good deal of buffeting, then the wheels touched the ground and all that was now needed was to stop. But each time the brakes were applied you could sense the wheels were skidding along due to the runway being covered with snow and ice. Engine breaking did the trick however and soon I was picking up the keys to the car - a Skoda similar to the one hired in December but the next model up: four wheel drive automatic with winter/studded tyres and heated everything. Just the ticket, so eight minutes later I was parking the car in the underground car park beneath the city and five minutes after that I was checking in to the hotel.

    Dinner was at a very nice pizzeria 50m from the hotel and afterwards I took a stroll through the streets to take in the air which was .... cold! Was that a hint of the Aurora just then? Indeed it was, but only the merest trace through a gap in the clouds and only for a moment or two. Soon it was snowing quite hard and the wind bitingly cold which meant it was time for a coffee back at the hotel to warm up.

    Glad you landed safely and assume suitcase with tripod arrived with you. Glad you like the Skoda😂 Looking forward to following the rest of the trip.👍

    Sounds as though the adventure has really got started what with a Good Skoda and the cold to match! You'll be glad to learn that the good weather has gone from here now but it is not as cold as you seem to be experiencing! Enjoy your trip and I look forward to the next instalment. All the best, Richard. PS "Basil" sends his best from which ever West Indian Island he has moved to now.

    Tromso

    January 29, 2020 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -8 °C

    Leisurely breakfast and nice long shower.
    Then a walk around the town which has a pretty setting with the water and mountains.
    Picked up some nice Danish jewelry, various scandi specialised jams, some presents, wrist warmers! and some excellent merino blend socks.

    I am forever looking at socks for traveling!
    For winter I like shorter ones as you already have so many layers on your legs. I also like a merino medium blend. If you are going to be outside for an extended time like snow mobiling then you need really thick wool socks.

    Then tonight we are chasing the lights!
