Having the chance to live in the Arctic was probably the best thing that has ever happened to me. However, if you judge a city by its weather conditions and available sunlight in winter, probably Tromso is not an appropriate place to visit.  But this is a place where you can enjoy nature and its limitless beauty to the fullest extent possible.

I spent four months on this wonderful small island and each day was a pleasant adventure and a new discovery.

In Tromso you can enjoy the silence of snow, admire the most beautiful “light show” – the northern lights (Aurora Borealis), go hiking, enjoy the breathtaking views and fjords,  and live a peaceful and calm life.

When the northern lights start dancing in the sky and you start listening to the silence, you get the feeling that the universe is one big miracle and there is nothing more beautiful, nor more mesmerizing than the natural world and its limitless possibilities
