Returning to shore a few days ahead of schedule, meant that students had some time for fun in Tromsø before returning home. Though we had stayed pretty active on the ship, it was so wonderful to stretch our legs; the freedom to roam and run up a local mountain was a welcome change to the routine. Also, being able to stop at a local grocery store and choose what to eat felt like such a luxury! Even though Tromsø is objectively a small city, it felt bustling and busy compared to life on the ship.
