Day one: Nordskot

Midnight sun has some interesting effects. Landing at Bodø at 11pm, the exhaustion of a six-hour, three-legged flight from the South of France utterly dissolves in the brilliant sunshine. It is a consequence of being at 67 degrees north, well within the Arctic Circle, in summertime.
