As you're probably already aware our friend and photographer, Nick Corkill, has been chasing waves and living the simple life in the harsh Norwegian wilderness. Here is his 5th and final instalment. Expect hikes, sights and Northern Lights.....
Decided to go for a hike today. I say hike, It was a small mountain that we had to traverse with none of us having any real 'mountain walking' experience other than wearing North Face jackets and going to climbing walls ( I don't even do that). I think we did a good job! Even if Adam (@thesaltyarchitiect) was dressed like he was going on a nightout and I had the worst sprained ankle I think I have ever had.... "Lets go for a little walk shall we? we can surf later" ........ 9 kilometres and 1000 ft later we made it, apart from not being able to tweet or get a good latte at the summit I was pretty chuffed!
We didn't surf.
Later that evening my mate James (@jamesaustrums) from Bristol turned up with a mate at our lodge (as you do, passing by in the Arctic like) and joined us for dinner. Later that evening we had our first taste of the Northern Lights which blew our MINDS!!!!! 6 lads running ( me hobbling) around a field shrieking with delight annoying James to lend his camera gear (he brought a small 'Jessops' store with him)
