Sápmi Culture Park

Just before going to sleep, the view towards the Sápmi Culture Park theatre, combining traditional Sámi culture with modern architecture.

Break of day

No sleep, yet.


We really enjoyed the trip. The only thing that crossed the street was a white rabbit. In Karasjok there is -9 degrees Celsius. Looking for a few hours of sleep and a nice breakfast.


(Not to ruin that moment just before, please note that the photo from the former post was taken with the Canon and not the Googlephone.) While driving through the night and your eyes are continously scanning the scenery for the 2,50m creatures that are advertised on the road signs, your mind starts to see strange things all around you.

A moment for the books

We stopped at a parking spot next the road. The horizon was moving and glowing in greenish colors. Never seen such a starry night. This night belongs to the sky. Then suddenly a huge star was falling from the sky, like if you pick the biggest and brightest one from above and double its size and intensity. Its lights burned out for a really big wish.

Goodbye for now

We had a great and productive time around Kirkenes and met a lot of very nice and unique people. So goodbye for now! Unfortunately, our appointment at Vadsø was cancelled, so our next stop will be Karasjok. It started to snow, so it could take us some time to get there.

Meeting by chance

Shortly after arriving at Kirkenes, we've been told that there is a German couple living in Kirkenes for about 2 years, working with dogs. Parker has a thing for dogs and we were curious to hear their story. We tried to get in touch with them, which did not work out. Today, when we just started the car to drive away towards the sunset, somebody knocked on the window. That was Michael, who noticed our German number plates. And actually he was one part of the couple we've been looking for. Hope to meet him and Franzi this summer. Greetings!
