During their different journeys of the MEMORIA Norway project, SpringerParker will update the Logbook on a regular basis.
It documents their route and events in forms of on location photos and descriptions sent directly via the mobile phone to this website.
Clicking at the geographical data to the left of the entries lets you follow their route on the map.

To sum up only some of the Tromsø events: a nice evening with Morten Rasmussen at the Verdensteatret, project updates with Knut Ljøgodt of the Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum and Svein Ingvoll Pedersen of the Tromsø Kunstforening, an inspiring dinner with Aggie (Frost) and Per Martinsen together with Geir Jensen (Biosphere) and Trine Falch Johannessen, a wonderful dinner and talks with Nicolas Horne and friends.

Hurtig hurtig

The moon is still up. In Tromsø we're gonna meet up with Elisabeth Nesheim from Bergen, one of our producers. We have a ferry to catch.

Let's spend the night together

... you find yourself a nice spot to spend the night taking photos of fjords and alps that are only lid by the full moon circling around.

Winter Wonderland

So, what do you do when you're stuck in Winter Wonderland because you lost the track of time?

The Lyngen Alps

We took the route 91 in the direction of Lyngen. The ferry trip over the fjord was quiet and peaceful. On the other side we found ourselves inside the beautiful area of the Lyngen Alps. After we already saw a diverse landscape while being in northern Norway, it is still possible to discover new environments. We travelled slowly and stopped several times to have look around ... and missed the last ferry at Svensby.

Full moon rising

The sky is clearing up and a full moon is rising. We're driving parallel to a fjord, following the mountains to the other side. It's an almost eerie athmosphere, while we are leaving the Finnmark in the direction of Tromsø.

The ice is getting thinner

When it comes to dealing with their streets during wintertime, Scandinavians use a technique where huge trucks are compressing the snow into compact layers, a few centimeters thick with a pattern surface that provides a very good grip. When it gets warmer again, the surface gets cracks and breaks, resulting in very bumpy and in our case also very noisy driving. Paired with rain now, this becomes quite a challenge. We experienced all aggregate states of water during one exploration, this combination is the most annoying one. People from up north here are claiming how unusual this phenomen is at this time of the year, while the headlines in the news are wondering about the climate.
