After a few days in Tromso to catch the Northern Lights, it's back to Oslo.
Anyways, the gamble to see the lights paid off, whew . . .
What was I thinking flying 13 hours just to play chance with nature.

I have never experience sunrise at 10am and remains twilight till sunset at 2pm!
Coming from near the equator, I'm prepared for the cold but the hours of day light was rather hilarious (in a fun way).
I know my body clock will go bonkers during summer with the mid-night sun.

So this is at the tarmac at about 4pm!

Seat

I'm apprehensive of leather seats on a/c as it looks like bus seats.
However with the red seat cover on black leather - it looked very good.
No stickers or adverts (from banks) in the cabin. These really cheapens the ambiance of the airline cabin.

Meals - buy on board

Download Norwegian Apps on your smartphone.
With that you can watch movies (pay), listen music and track flight path (free). Cool!

This is Norway-Scandinavia. Everyone was quite even the tiny tots. No drama.
Even the noisy Cantonese speaking varsity students at the airport kept silent.
