Our mini-bus taxi arrived at 8. It was really nice, comfy and spacious. Two minutes down the road we had to brake as a group of reindeer were crossing the road. I was really excited to finally see some in the wild! They were white/grey/brown with antlers. This mini-bus had a DVD player and lots of movies to watch- we were really excited about this. First we saw Long Weekend- average movie with cutie Chris Klein. Saw heaps more reindeer on our 3 hour drive north. We drove along the coast. Then watched Ice Age II- very appropriate. Finally at 11 we arrived at Nordkapp- most northerly point of Europe. The place to see the Midnight Sun- something we had paid lots extra to do. It was freezing outside, cloudy and raining. Not good weather to see the sun in. Wandered through the info centre for the next 2 hours, in between going out to take photos every 15 minutes. Was hard to see the sun- too cloudy. At midnight (1am because of daylight saving) the sky was white. It was not orange like on all the postcards. Pretty amazing that the sun was setting and rising in front
of us. The amount of light was the same all day long- no darkness. The drive back started off slow as it was raining and very foggy. Saw more reindeer and watched King Arthur. Arrived back at camp at 4am. It was still very light. Went to bed for a sleep in.
