𝐄𝐏𝟐𝟏 | Leaving Tromsø: Night Of Hustles, But all went well. 🤍Travel Story With Tips

Updated: Dec 14, 2022

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.

[ Ep 14 ] 👏To my little brother!

This was the first time that he had booked a flight himself. I was so worried before - not only because of the luggage weight and so on but also because he called me a day before that there was Tube S
