Day Eleven – back to Kiruna

Not much of an update today- for the most part I’ve been in the car, doing the 300-odd mile journey from Reine back to Kiruna in Sweden. I left Reine early, and the weather was still pretty blustery The rain continued pretty much most of the way until I was…

Day Five – Offersøykammen

I’d planned to have a quiet morning today, but the weather forecast suggested that the afternoon would be rainy (and much of tomorrow, too) so I decided to do another mountain hike while I had chance. I picked Offersøykammen- another that’s rated as “easy”, but I’ve come to the conclusion that…
