Norway - Tromso

After crossing the Arctic circle over night we docked in Tromso early this morning. A pretty town but a bit quiet as its a Sunday. The architecture is a well placed mixture of old weatherboard (brightly coloured) and very well integrated, modern . Spent the day in the Polaria, and Polar Museums. A bit nerdy but I was hooked as they are full of Amundsen and Nansen exploration type stuff which I love as this is what I read about in the library when I was supposed to be studying engineering at uni. Also watched harbour and bearded seals being trained in the research centre.
