Tramping around Tromsø

So, we had a cold and lovely time in Tromsø, Norway this month. We visited museums , went on a husky sled, fed reindeers, saw the northern lights, went snow shoeing and sampled the local fayre, all in 3 days!

 Here is me feeding what was my favourite white reindeer 🙂 
Here is our husky sled, which crashed by the way.  
 

  Below is our snow shoe adventure, which was really hard work!
 
Somehow, in between all this activity we managed to snag a few geocaches. My first foreign geocache was discovered while walking back along the huge bridge,  which we had crossed to view the Arctic cathedral. This was only a micro cache.   The day after we had a bit of time to spare inbetween reindeer stroking and aurora chasing, so we hunted for more. We ended up along a breakwater on the tromsø harbour. We were unsure at first as to whether we were allowed down there but that’s where the GPS took us. Dee tee was the one scrambling in the snow to find the caches bless him. The pic below shows him searching under some waterside huts, I was scared he was going to fall into the icy depths!

  
There were no tourists around here, lovely and peaceful and great views across to the city which we would never had seen if not for geocaching.
I found a travel bug, which I always love , I’ve yet to move it on. I also found a seal, which was quite apt as we had been to see some seals in the Polaria museum on our first day. Also got what looks like a caterpillar, I thought it was super cute, I am going to put it on a string and make a necklace out of it. 

  
Excuse the crinkled bedsheets.
