Bentley and I caught the 4 hour bus to Narvik. I spent pretty most of the ride staring out the window at the most amazing sunset, fjords and landscapes.
The views we saw up here have been probably the most impresive views I've seen all year.
We hit Narvik for 2 reasons. It has a train that will take you to Stockholm, and you can ski there.
We arrived late, stayed at the worlds most expensive hostel (40GBP per person per night) and the next day we skied for 2 hours at the lowest altidude ski resort (100m-700m above sea level) overlooking the Fjord
Skiing at 100m above sea-level is surprisingly spectacular, especially when you can see the fjords right at tr bottom of the slope.
I tried getting a few photos but the ones I got just don't do it justice. It was another amazing sight.
After a brief ski we caught the 18 hour train to Stockholm on Sunday afternoon. It left Narvik at 2pm and got into Stockholm around 8am.
Even though we had a sleeper cabin reserved I made sure Bentley and I went straight to the best place to be on the train, the restaurant car.
I'm a big fan of traveling by train. What makes it even better is when you can hang out in the restaurant car, have a nice meal, a glass of wine or 3 and watch the landscape pass.
After it got dark mike broke out his netbook and we watched nearly the entire 6th season of Entourage before hitting the sack.
