Map of the arctic tour

We seen lots of snow

I knew I would not be coming back ...ever!!!

This is the Arctic Circle line (1 Day never gets light and 1 day never gets dark)

66° 33′ 39″ (or 66.56083°) north of the Equator

yes even a GPS back then (it also went the previous year)

You can book these to sleep in, Huyters !!!! Not me and James we like better

Don't They look well

This is Nordkapp... The most northern tip of Europe at midnight

This canny lass Bente was in charge of a coach party and also looked after us

I never did suit horns
