Kiruna from above

Since we have a new and very exciting client based in Kiruna we started this week by spending 24 hours there. Kiruna is located 200 kilometers above the polar circle (!) and I have never been even close to that far up north.

This was the stunning view from the plane when we were about to land. After that followed a hectic schedule that included a visit to the Ice Hotel site, Esrange; the Swedish Space Center, a delicious three course meal, sleeping in a cabin, great hotel breakfast, a space school, the Swedish institute for Space Physics and at last the Arctic Arena. It was all very interesting and just to be in such a different place where it was already winter made it feel like a mini adventure. I'll show you some more pictures later. /M
