When I heard about the midnight sun I knew this trip was going to be special. Nothing could have prepared me for how special it would actually be.
KjerringÃ¸y is in the north of Norway, actually within the arctic circle. This means around this time of year the sun doesn’t set. 6pm feels like mid-day, midnight feels like 6pm. It is an awesome thing to witness. This causes two things to happen.
- Lack of sleep
- Lots more drinking
I had a fantastic time and the people were without exception brilliant, clever, charming, warm and friendly.
Despite the lethal levels of alcohol in our systems we also acheived a great deal. We worked on their brand, roadmap and priorities for development, marketing strategies and lots of new exciting developments.
As a web geek it can be easy to slip into thinking that everything can be done over the internet but this trip has been proof that there are times face to face is just so much better.
Thanks to my friends in Norway for having me over, it was a real blast! 🙂
