Arrival in… Reykjavik!


I don’t like to have little time when going to the airport and already had several scenarios playing through my head about what could possible go wrong. Of course the Flybussen picked me, and plenty of others, up right on time. And with an hour I had enough time to board my flight to Oslo. The second flight, to Reykjavík, was …

Last day in Tromsø

Me and Danique decide to go to the west of the island to take a look at the beautiful coast. There isn’t a lot of daylight, so we definitely need to go while we still can. Before we arrive there, we first take a peek into the Tromsø museum. The Dutch people know how to save money:  “Two student entrances, please .” Without actually …

Whales and northern lights

  We’re in luck, because the guide on the bus is very knowledgeable and likes to share everything he knows. He tells us more about whales, but also about the Sami. The original inhabitants of this region. While driving, we see some beautiful reindeers grazing on the white planes, while a cold winterstorm rages over them. Forty minutes later, the …

The city that is …

Fjorden in Bergen

Sigh, rubbing my eyes, yawn, stretch. I have to get out of my bed! Half an hour later, after putting on several layers of clothing again, I check my backpack and camera to make sure everything is okay before I leave. The trip to the Norse fjords starts at 10 AM from the cosy harbour. It’s a lot colder than …

Bergen, Norway

The more I think about it, the less I like Copenhagen. I must admit that the city itself is gorgeous, but the people are just not very kind… Probably I was just out of luck, because from other people I heard later that they didn’t meet any unkind people in Copenhagen. Anyway… I was happy to go on to my …
