Night Of Hustles, but eventually, it all went smoothly. Goodbye, Tromsø & my little bro.
🤍Some tips and take away at the bottom.
The last day of my trip wasn't very smooth.
As it was my 1st time in Tromsø, I wasn't familiar with their port and was nervous. The cruise trip was a long trip that was more than just transportation; if I missed that, I would be screwed.
Our initial plan was to go to the port together at ~8 pm. So, if anything went wrong with the port location, etc., we could be more agile as a team than one girl with two suitcases.
& Spend more time together.
It turned out there was an incident that we worried about more.
My little brother's flight was at 6 am.
Something we only learned after check-out.
Things you need to be aware of at the Tromsø airport
The Tromsø airport is not 24h.
The first bus-only starts at 5 am, and the airport only opens around 4:30 am.
So, there was no way he could make it to the flight by bus.
It closes from 0:00 to 4:30.
If you go too early, you will have to wait outside the airport at 0°C.🥶🌬
🤞Fortunately, my little brother double-checked with the receptionist about the transportation. Otherwise, he would be staying at Tromsø alone while hotels were fully-booked and I was on the sea already.
👏Luckily, the receptionist was very helpful.🤍
The receptionist was nice, allowing him to stay past midnight in the hotel meeting room/side lobby.🤞
So that he could take a taxi to the airport at 4:15 am and catch the flight.
One of the reasons I love Norway is that the people I have met so far are incredibly lovely.
-- feeling grateful🥰
Now, phase 1 of traveling from Northern Norway to Southern Norway is officially finished. Phase 1: Visit Tromsø with my little brother.
Next Phase: Solo travel from the North to the South of Norway by different transportation.
🐣Tips & Takeaway:
Budget - Don't book a flight from Tromsø earlier than 7:30 am.
Taxi is costly in Norway, but it is the only way to get there if your flight is as early as 6 am. How expensive is it? Much more costly than Barcelona. Basically, 1 Nok 1 second, so it's like $1 for 8 seconds, 9 Euro for 9 seconds. You will see the number keeps going up. If you do not spare a budget for it, you are going to have a heart attack jk.
So if you are going to Tromsø in winter, it is better not to take a flight earlier than 7:30 am.
