We raced the boat back from Mehamn to Kjollefjord, over the mountains on Skidoos. Half way we stopped for a drink of hot juice (like weak Ribena), switched all the lights off and looked at the stars. It was a very still night, so apart from it being minus 19C, four layers of insulation meant the only cold bit was the bit on my cheeks that the balaclava didn't cover. We got back to the boat at 3 am and I slept until 11 am. I missed breakfast but Lunch is in 10 minutes. Very little Northern lights last night, and none on our trip, but still a fantastic experience. Part of the group did it the other way and liked it so much that they repeated it on the way back. I'm not sure I would be bothered about repeating it, but I have ticked Northern Lights, Husky sledding , and snowmobiling off of my bucket list.
Canada for the fall(Autumn) I think. We have an invite for a wedding in St Johns Newfoundland at the end of August. Not quite as cold. I hope we get a decent summer here before then.
