Rosalie McKay MOSAiC Ambassador Blog 2 Sept 14 15

I booked my arrival in Tromsø a few days ahead of the start of the school, in case of delays or lost luggage. This gave me two free days to explore northern Norway. I chose to travel to Senja for the weekend. I stayed at a cozy Airbnb in Finnsnes and managed a couple hikes. The 8-hour time difference was really hard to adapt to and was accompanied by much exhaustion from two days of traveling. The fresh mountain air and exercise were a great cure for jetlag.
