Travelling abroad is never easy, but most of the time the return journey home is more difficult. Throughout the trip we are constantly exhausted yet the thrill of being in another country keeps our energy high. As our return flight approaches, the thrill is replaced with fatigue. Additionally, we always book weird flight paths and that doesn’t help.
Since this trip was planned spur-of-the-moment, our return journey home took us first through the small town of Trondheim, Norway. Here we stayed briefly overnight so we could catch an international flight home. We didn’t have time for much, just a good dinner and a stroll around the city in the rain.
At Trondheim we said goodbye to Lyle – he was returning to the States via Reykjavik and Katie and I were flying home via Amsterdam. Lucky for us, our layover in Amsterdam was 6 hours. Which was just enough time to leave the airport and get some food in the city center and catch a quick canal tour. Although I had been here before, Katie hadn’t so I took over her regular photography duties.
With this last stop, our Scandinavia trip had come to a close. The planning may have been a little ad hoc, but it came together very well and overall we had a very relaxing vacation.
