Day in Tromsø

Tromsø, 04 July We arrived in Tromsø with a list of things to do and people to see. On the list was a visit to the Norwegian equivalent of the Salvation Army's store. Sometimes there are some amazing bargains in knitwear but not today.

Next stop, the supermarket for some supplies. I also wanted to see if it was possible to buy a Euro plug lead for the laptop computer. Because these are 2-pin and flat, they are much easier to pack in a suitcase- but we could only find adapters.

It was hot-  very hot for the Arctic with the temperature displayed as +16C !

Although some of the Totally Norway team have visited Tromsø in spring and summer, all my visits have been in winter. The little roadtrain was running.
An interesting discussion with a local resident was that 'it is quieter in summer, everyone goes to their cabins'. They were referring, of course, to the local winter population.
