I’m getting my bags packed for another winter trip to Lofoten.  I fly from the UK on Tuesday morning and arrive north of the Arctic Circle in Bodø, Norway in the evening.  Then I catch the 01:30am ferry to Moskenes, arriving on Lofoten around 07:00am Wednesday morning.  The weather has been good for the last week of so, but it is looking to become somewhat unsettled once I arrive, that’s just how it goes in the north.

Change of travel plans. I’ll spend 2 weeks on Lofoten and then fly down to Stockholm, Sweden for a few days before returning home to California in early March.  I was originally planning on returning to the UK, but I’ve had to make some adjustments to my travels.  On the bright side, I’ll only be in California for about 2 months before heading back to Lofoten at the end of April.  Not too bad considering I wasn’t even sure if I would get to Lofoten at all in 2013.
