Our group in Boden station (Sweden)

Our group in Boden station (Sweden)

This was my best trip so far, let me explain why:

  • We did 2 meetings to align everything, 1 meeting over skype and other in my house
  • We have been to Sweden, Norway and Finland
  • We arrive there 4 days after a 2 solar flares and we saw the result of them in our first night in the Aurora Zone (2013-02-13)
  • Everyone went very well prepared: Clothing and Mind (You have to prepare yourself for an Adventure like this)
  • No complaints during the trip, the guys were really enjoying every single moment of it.
  • The train ticket could be cheaper, but we choose to have beds for the night train and the ticket was re-bookable (in case we weren’t able to catch the train on time)
  • Linen, food and Diesel not included in the below figures (it worked out ~50 a head)

 

Ok, Let’s talk about figures…  Show me the money!!!
