Tromsø – Back to one of my many homes

When I started to study for real I took my home on my back and moved north. I wanted to get away from home, I wanted something else, I wanted more nature after a few years in Stockholm and a year in the south of Sweden. I didn’t like the south of Sweden. Flat landscape was boring. So why not the north of Norway? I  knew I wanted to study anthropology, I loved to learn more about different cultures. I loved to…
