Throwback Travel: Tromsø

Throwback Travel Thursday: Tromsø

Last summer, my parents and I took a road trip through northern Norway. After a family reunion in Parkalompolo, Sweden, the village where my grandmother grew up (the type of village where the dirt road reaches a “Road Ends Here” sign and then there’s only wild forest until what I can only assume are the ends of the Earth), we took our rental Volvo explorin’. We wove through Finland when the roads were better and reached Tromsø, Norway, as the mists rolled in. We were almost literally on top of the world.
