After that ‘refreshing’ dip in the Arctic Sea, we meandered slowly through the city centre of Tromso before heading to our new hotel, smack in the centre of the action (I use that term lightly – it was a long public holiday so the city wasn’t nearly as busy as it typically would be). Our … Continue Reading

But first, let’s carry on where we left off (the previous post is available here if you haven’t seen it yet)… After our day exploring Tromso, we were very pleased with the idea of dinner followed by a quick dip in the hot tub (though perhaps it might have made sense to do it the … Continue Reading
