Comfort Hotel Xpress Tromsø
The only way to come full circle with the Midnight Sun level of extraordinary Tromsø experience is to ALSO have a great accommodation to try out. This would be possible with 2018 TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice accommodation in Norway known as the Comfort Hotel® Xpress Tromsø. The second I set my eyes on this smart-looking hotel is when I knew it’s going to be an absolute stress-free and chill-full of lounging and resting here. The lobby alone spoke volumes as to how cool and contemporary the place is. Literally just a few steps from the main street, and some awesome alleys in between, the overall vibe of the hotel is that it’s somewhere you really won’t mind spending the day and night in. You are guaranteed to enjoy a complete relaxing stay without much fuss about your itinerary or what have you – just stay in and enjoy the place.

“Trite” will never be a word you would want to describe the rooms here in the Comfort Hotel Xpress Tromsø. All of their standard rooms have free WiFI, whether it’s a Standard Single, Standard 2 Single Beds, or Standard Double beds. The stylish rooms contain everything you can imagine as necessities – the beds, the desk, the chair, the flat screen TV are all styled in a way that looks current and comfortable. The Bathroom has of course all the nice-ities and it looks very well cleaned, which is important. The BIG plus point for me, maybe because I haven’t had that much experience is the view outside the window. Imagine swiping your window curtains to the either side, just to see a magnificent view of the snowcapped mountains? What an absolute beaut! Maybe, I should try to do more staycation experiences in Tromsø, because this one aspect of the Comfort Hotel Xpress Tromsø, made me appreciate it even more.

Aside from Xpress breakfast, where you can purchase delicious breakfast choices at their lobby shop, they also have an actual lobby shop where you can buy drinks, salads, snacks, and a whole lot of stuffs that can be useful when you are traveling. Plus points for them, because they have a Self-service check-in and they also offer late check-out / early check-in combos! What I really like are their discounts, of course. They have special offers that you can avail if you know where to look (read: look here instead yes). During the nights when we had to stay up pretty late (hoping to catch the Northern Lights), we were just hanging around the lobby area, and it was all sorts of the perfect chill vibe, not too noisy, not too deafeningly silent either!

So, if you are in search of a really comfy lodging house that’s walkable to any of these landmarks: Polaria (an arctic aquarium), The Arctic Cathedral, Fjellheisen Cable Car, The Science Center of Northern Norway, and The Botanical Gardens, you’ll be really happy to find out that the Comfort Hotel Xpress Tromsø transcends that stunning neo-classical architectures around the city. Likewise, still keeping up to its mission to give you the best value for money hotel experience that you can ask for. I cannot wait to be back here!

Now Do This: Walk Around Tromsø With It’s Guaranteed Spectacular Views
We all know that walking is one of the most underrated forms of exercise, but there’s something about my Neanderthal roots that makes me appreciative of walking. Lol. (well either that reason, of the very simplest reason that I live in Singapore, and people here are so fond of walking… fast.) Did you know that walking is the nearest activity to the perfect exercise? Yes, you read that right! According to one walking report, there are so many reimbursements that you can get from walking. While yes, I agree on that, I agree more if you happen to walk in places like the one in Tromsø. Even on a very cold snowy arctic month, this Northern part of Norway is unbelievably beautiful.

A very charming cosmopolitan city, Tromsø, you’d be rather surprised to discover that this nearly remote location is full of city-scenery kind of balance. There are a whole lot of photo-worthy, postcard approved vistas here, and you just won’t feel stressed out at all! Likewise, when I found out that there are easy walks within and around the city of Tromsø, I freely forced my bunch of blokes to brave the cold weather and explore the whole place on foot. yes, indeed. The routes that we did are very Google map friendly and covers all the main museums and the attractive streets with old wooden houses, as well as an easy walk around a picturesque lake near the center of Tromsø, where we decided to stop with what seemed to be forever. It’s absolutely jaw-dropping! The layers of mountains and wilderness that can be seen from a distance are inviting enough for you to want to either sit-and-stare or walk-over-there. Heard from the locals that there are so many easy and envious hikes with spectacular views in Tromso, which is of course, just wow.

Ever heard of the Midnight Sun Marathon? It’s a terrific experience for any marathon runners looking for somewhere different for their next race, and Tromso is that special place for you. Other than that, there’s also the Tromsdalen, Arctic Cathedral, Storsteinen and Floya walk route, the Prestvanet Lakeside Walk, and perhaps even the Arctic Cruise between Skjervøy and Tromsø is also an interesting option for walking? If you happen to be a dead-serious outdoorsy walker, it’s also worth mentioning to read this post about the Hikes in Tromso.

My troop settled on making snow angels on the streets, looking like the ridiculous Asians that we obviously were. Doing a lot of walking while the place was filled with snow was rather challenging, especially if you aren’t used to such cold weather. Nevertheless, it’s a welcome challenge for us, because we truly wanted to pretend to be snow monkeys, bigfoots, and sasquatch monsters… or maybe just create snow angels and be the goofy Asians that we truly are. In any case, Tromsø is such a breathtaking place to explore on foot, you have to do it for sure!

Norway Travel For the Very First Time: Illuminating Tromsø Through The Northern Lights

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Norway :: Norway Travel For the Very First Time: Illuminating Tromsø Through The Northern Lights
Norway Travel For the Very First Time
My lack of slumber and excess eye bags weren’t preventing me to be a wide-eyed owl human as our flight slowly descended to the Oslo International Airport in the Kingdom of Norway. At long last, my much-awaited visit to this unitary monarchy and this western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula was finally becoming a reality. Ever since I found out that Norway laid claims on a section of Antartica, ranking first on the World Happiness Report, and being the best place to live in the world, I always dreamt of visiting (and living) here someday. To me, this is the Japan version of Scandinavia, and everything about it is worth dreaming for; and to be able to finally visit Norway for the very first time, I was already pinching myself out of rib-tickling disbelief!

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Norway :: Norway Travel For the Very First Time: Illuminating Tromsø Through The Northern Lights
bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Norway :: Norway Travel For the Very First Time: Illuminating Tromsø Through The Northern Lights

Norway, meaning “Northern Way” or “Way Leading to the North”, has a rich long history from the Viking age, Geographical and Climate changes, and of course, it’s ever-changing biodiversity and environment. Every page in the magazine in front of me, during my plane ride to Oslo, depicted attractive and dramatic sceneries and landscapes throughout Norway. From the west coast of Southern Norway down to its northern side, there are so so so so so and did I mention so many things to enjoy from. National Geographic and Instagram photographers are always having a visual feast here, especially since it’s home of the Midnight Sun and Aurora Borealis. Yes, Aurora – the one and only mission I had when I went to Norway!

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Norway :: Norway Travel For the Very First Time: Illuminating Tromsø Through The Northern Lights

In Troms County, Tromso, with a population of 60,000++, stories about the reality and lucidity of the Northern lights are abundant. It’s a never-ending tale of dancing green lights in this arctic area, and our troop of Northern Lights chasers were overly eager to meet and greet with Aurora. They say that this is where your Arctic adventure begins, but we started as soon as we landed in Oslo for our connecting flight. Us being Asians, we were really impressed by how charmingly civilized the airport is (read: hi tech?). It’s one of the better ones we have experienced in Europe.

Yes, Tromsø is the ideal space for seeing the northern lights and it has a contemporary combination of outdoor activities, a pulsating nightlife, and spaces to eat local food. Join me as I welcome you to another series of travels, this time in Norway, as we explore the majestic phenomenon of the northern lights and popular powder-ice city known as Tromso. Let my photos illuminate your interest in visiting this rich and fresh country. It’s time to "photo read" your way to this gateway to the arctic!

5 of Helsinki’s Authentic Cafes and Coffee Shops That You Need To Stalk
Nordic coffee culture sounds so cool (literally cold lol). Helsinki, with its Swedish and Russian historical influences, turned out to be a really cool place to explore and crave for some blameless coffee discoveries. Apart from its neoclassical city center flares, and outstanding architectures, this Nordic city is one of the world leaders when it comes to coffee consumption – each Finn consumes a staggering 12 KG of coffee each year! I know, I should live here! Lol. So needless to say, it’s a necessity for anyone who visits the city, to pay homage, and make an effort to explore the city for some authentic cafes and coffee shops. The ones that’ll truly give you that rush of sensory experience, especially if it is your first time in this magnificent city. I recommend these four everyday local approved unique coffee spots for you.

What’s best is that in the same pretty wooden building you can admire gorgeous old toys, have a cup of good coffee (definitely the best coffee on the fortress!) together with perfect chocolate cake and buy some cards and toys with vintage feeling. Also my three year old enjoyed our visit, the tasty cinnamon bun (korvapuusti in Finnish) and counting all the toy cats of the museum. This time the old Moomin trolls caught my eye – I just love their scruffy look. Read full review here: https://helsinkifeelings.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/toys-coffee-and-cake-at-suomenlinna/

Karl Fazer Café
Address: Kluuvikatu 3, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
Opening Hours: Mon – Fri 7:30 A.M. – 10:00 P.M., Sat 9:00 A.M. – 10:00 P.M., Sun 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M.
Official Website:  https://www.fazer.fi/kahvilat-ja-leipomot/fazer-cafe/
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fazersuomi/

Fazer café is the Finnish equivalent of an afternoon tea salon. Started by Karl Fazer (pronounced "Fahtzer") in 1891, it is said to be the place where "the female population of the city would spend time, taking certain pleasure in using up the last pennies of their fathers, brothers, fiancees and admirers for indulging in huge amounts of sweet delicacies" and indeed looking around there are ladies lunching on salads, sandwiches or divine little cakes and chocolates. Beautifully merchandised, the windows beckon with tantalising colours and delicate morsels. When we had walked past on the Sunday when they were closed, I practically drooled in front of the window so the next day a plan was made to come here. And if anyone should derail these plans, they will incur my wrath! Read full review here: http://www.notquitenigella.com/2008/07/16/fazer-cafe-helsinki-finland/

We settled with an excellent Ethiopian via V60, along with a decaf flat white. The V60 was expertly prepared at their expansive brew bar and produced strong strawberry and blackcurrent flavours. The V60 was beautifully prepared and brought out the flavours from the coffee nicely, we noticed that the choice of bean roast and filter method consistency here and in other roasteries in Helsinki really suit filter. The flat white was prepared with care and served with lovely latte art (lots of cafes don’t seem to bother with decaf drinks) and tasted of considerably more than of your standard dark roast decaf.
