Welcome, Hannah and Kris

Yesterday we welcomed Hannah and Kris for a week visit. They arrived in Tromsø just at the beginning of a big storm which caused the cancellation of flights, ferries and buses. Thankfully they managed to beat the weather here to Finnsnes.

Today we had not one, but two ski trips. The first in daylight and on the flat (their first time on skis):

And the second in the dark and with some hills (and thrills and spills):

Here Comes The Sun

The sun is soon due back. Today we saw the signs, as the sky lit up gold, the mountain tops shone pink, and the sun illuminated snow blowing off of the mountain tops:

Just a few more days!
