Friends

Friends

Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. With an ensemble cast starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, the show revolves around six 20–30-something friends living in Manhattan. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and it was one of the first things that jumped to my mind when I saw this weeks word.


And so the TV series is not what we are talking about.
We are talking about the social concept, known as friendship.
Our word of the week. Continue reading “Friends”

The Mysterious Mini Cooper
The mystery of the mysterious green Mini Cooper is resolved when our friends return from a long hike across the cliffs of Cape North to take some selfies and discover that our little green friends used the mini to speed up their way to Cape North with yet another clue to the quest for the Northern Light.
Shelly finally meets our little green friends

Shelly is the first out on the cliffs of Cape North to welcome our little green friends and they spent quite some time talking (*) before they join all together for a group selfie here on the commonly referred most northern part of Europe (**).

 

A quick group selfie on Cape North

Once the selfies have been taken and everyone did a quick check in on their social media of choice (Cape North has a free WIFI zone, special thanks to one of the largest telecom operators in Norway) our little green friends give Julien an import clue that it is not Tutti Frutti on the inside of his life jacket, but actually reads Hurtigruten and the final harbour of the Northern Voyage may very well contain another passenger for the Crew …

Without further ado the Crew packs up their photo gear, heads back to the Camper and starts their travel East …

(*) Will Shelly reveal what she has been discussing with our little green friends out on the cliffs ?
(**) The steep cliff of North Cape is often (mistakenly) referred to as the northernmost point of Europe, located at 71°10′21″N 25°47′40″E, about 2,102.3 kilometres (1,306.3 mi) from the North Pole. However, the neighboring Knivskjellodden point, just to the west actually extends 1,457 metres (4,780 ft) farther to the north and this is where our friends where hiking when they were considered lost or abducted by aliens.
Regardless, both of these points are situated on an island, which technically means the northernmost point of mainland Europe is in fact located at Cape Nordkinn (Kinnarodden) which lies about 5.7 kilometres (3.5 mi) farther south and about 70 kilometres (43 mi) to the east and another beautiful location for photo hikes.

Graffiti

The Sjaman in action over morning coffee …

When we woke up this morning in Alta we found a trace of red paint outside the Camper.

An ancient red paint with traces of copper and ox blood mixed into it (did you know that red was the very first color which got its own name ?)

It didn’t take long before the Ladies found a hidden track behind the Camper and took the whole Crew on a morning walk into the protected World Heritage Site of Rock Art at Alta.

The Sjaman on duty explained the true secret of of the Northern Light would be revealed if we traveled to a small fisherman village up in the North listening to the name of Geirsver.

Without hesitation we returned to the Camper and continued our quest up to the village completely impressed by this prehistoric graffiti and the promise of getting yet another clue in our adventure.

On the road up North we took a few detours to do a mandatory check in on Facebook in the city of Hammerfest, the very first city in Europe to have electrical street lights and made some stops to collect Pebbles.

Pebbles on the road …

Pebbles seems to be a key ingredient in our quest …

Right now the Crew is out and about shooting some magic in the last midnight sun covering the village of Geirsver.

Lets keep our fingers crossed we can post some stunning HDR over the coffee when we take a deeper look why we are at Nordkapp  …
