17th May in Tromsø, Norway // A Photo Diary

If you've seen my latest vlog, you might know that Norway's National Day on May 17 this year was a rather wet one in Tromso. That didn't stop us from having fun though and as usual on days like this, the whole city gathered downtown to watch the parades and celebrate the beautiful country of Norway!

I brought my point and shoot camera along to take a few snaps from the parade and also shot our traditional champagne breakfast earlier that day. 

As a result, I was left with a few pictures that I think, summarize what 17th May in Norway is all about pretty well. But see for yourself:

Is there anything that surprised you about the festivities? Or do you have any questions about Norwegian culture and traditions?
