day 05: norway and a moose (0 comments)
accidentally i switched off the alarm clock of my mobile phone. so we got up later than we had intended the night before. the funny thing was, we got up and it was still as light as when we went to bed. after checking out at the camping ground we were heading for inari (approximately 350km south of north cape), a little village focusing on tourists and selling sami clothing and other strange stuff. besides that, and a very bitter coffee (we guess the bowl with filter coffee stood there way too long), there's nothing really exciting about inari. so we drove on to karasjok in norway where we planned to leave finland and enter norway. on the way there, we spotted our first moose. yes, this time a real one! unfortunately we were not really prepared for this awesome encounter, so there are no photos of the moose - bad luck. well, maybe we'll see another one later during our trip, this time with the camera readied. later we crossed the finish norwegian border and one of the first things we had to do was to get some money, norwegian crowns (to bad they're not part of the EU). when heading for the camping site in lakselv at first we crossed a military area (no parking or taking photographs!), then zombiequeen cooled her feet in seawater in the porsangen fjord, and finally we were driving along the river karasjokka, which led us to our final destination, the camping site. for the first time (besides some moments in helsinki) we had really good weather (in austrian terms, this means no rain, no clouds, sun, and warm wind, and temperatures over 15 degrees celsius). therefore we made use of our "no bite" anti mosquito gels and had our first meal outdoor. though pretty effective, the gel does not keep the mosquito's off very long, so right after that, taking photos, and writing postcards we entered the camper again. after having finished this blog entry we're going to drink tea, then go to bed, to get to north cape early tomorrow.
