A Kind Hearted Norwegian to the Rescue :)
Another kind hearted Norwegian came to rescue last night
Having cycled 400km to Andenes I learned the boat service ended in August and was facing a 450km reroute back on myself which would have added 4 more days to my attempt to get to Nordkapp.
However, last night in the hotel I was staying at I met the local newpsaper journalist and after our interview for the local paper he very very kindly agreed to drive me an hour to the boat that was leaving for Tromso.
The boat was leaving at 4.30am, 50km from my hotel so I set my alarm for 3am to get up and make sure I made this boat.
I ended up not sleeping at all, and just stayed up trying to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
I never saw them in the end but was feeling so glad I was able to get the boat and not have to cycle an extra 450km.
Arrived in Tromso today off the boat and now with my hosts and looking forward to a day off here before the final leg of the Norwegian challenge on Monday.
