Day 1 – Groveling in Tromsø

I landed in Tromsø where snow was falling. Chris and Em met me at the airport with the ‘Biltrend’, our rental car, and a delicious packed dinner. Yay. Tim and Aly, currently the two other members of the party, don’t appear to have been schooled in the art of groveling so had rented a hotel room. Expert grovelers, Chris and Em, had other plans and we soon found a slushy patch of snow by the road side near Tromsø where we proceeded to pitch Chris’ two person tent.

Heading to Norway

I’m in Riga, Latvia on my way to Norway. The plan is to meet Chris and Emily in Tromso and go ski touring in the Lyngen Alps over the next week. It seems the weather has other plans but we shall see. Chris and Em have a hut sorted out somewhere and some rented wheels.

I left Freiburg yesterday and traveled to Allgaeu where I caught up with the NTC and Faszi folk, Franzi, Kathi, Nils, Grit, Flo, and Gavin. We had a relaxed evening catching up while eating out in Sonthofen. I collected my skis this morning and headed to Munich airport.
