Tromsø I have a long “reading” history with that place.
I've read so much about it, it almost felt like visiting an old friend.
Walking in the rain in that doll city, surrounded by exceptionally colorful wooden houses (including some really outrageous colors that you don't see in houses),  heavy white clouds, and the majestic "crying" mountains left me numb!

I was walking with mouth open repeating, oh so ungracefully:  “Are you fucking kidding me?”

The bf and his parents :)

Oh yes, and there was a lot of decadence and shabby places amongst the expensive luxurious villas. It was really bizarre But I'll write more about it on the entry for the second day in Tromsø

House on Sale!

View from the other side of that house on sale ... *sigh*

Between the house on sale and the view ..... I'm dying here ...

The most weird color on a house ... and of course the owner was a Swede ;) :p

And in a lil tunnel, I found a cute thing ...

"Once upon a time ...

... there was a crazy bear who ate a magic mushroom ...

... but the rest you get to read about in school ..."


next day in Tromsø was sunny and bright ...

to be continued ...

Hey you, what do you notice different about this city from the other?
Is the weather and are the people similar?

Well. The people are the same as far as I could tell in the 4 days in total I stayed in Norway. Well, Scandinavians, you know, speaking the same language with small differences. I didn't have to speak English. I understood, and they understood me fine. (apart from one lady who had really heavy accent). And by asking: "this city from the other" you mean Tromsø and Narvik? Or? Cause these are the only two cities I visited in Norway. Or you mean Stockholm and Tromsø? Or? ( I visited a few cities in Northern Sweden and Finland in that trip)

Well if I compare to Stockholm, the weather is a wee bit different. It's a little colder. More humidity (at least the day I was there) Plus, it never gets dark in the summer. In Stockholm there are a few hours of darkness.

Also there is a bit less harmony in the arkitekture and the way the houses are built and positioned. In Stockholm there is a lot more homogeneousness and uniformity in the infrastructure. Which is not a bad thing. It is just different.

I will actually write a bit more about this in a future post :)
