48 hours of daylight

We are in the Arctic! Blogging and camping turns out to be a challenging combination, hence this compact first report. Reidun Laura Andreassen is our first participant from Vestre Jakobselv, near Vadsø. She spent St.Hans eve with us covered in vegetation on an ancient Sami burial site. On the following day Jørgen Dahl from Vadsø took us to Hamningberg, a place that truly knocked our socks off.

Look out for a special feature of the Hamningberg experience on NRK Finnmark this coming weekend. Full stories from both of these days will follow as soon as we hit the power sockets again.
