It’s official. We’ve lived one year in the North Cape of Norway… one year and two weeks to be exact. We’ve experienced polar nights and the midnight sun. Northern lights, reindeer munching shrubs in our yard, and gale force winds that scare the you-know-what out of me (Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wind).
I’ve used four hours to shovel my car out of the garage (Lessons in Patience), hiked to the top of Europe, and started the process of opening a gallery (Before, After and Before). It’s been a rich year as my family and I have started experiencing North Cape.
Here’s a little journey through 2011 in photos. Hope they give you a glimpse of how beautiful it is a 71º North.
