It was our day off today, and feels like a much deserved one. With that in mind we were up early enough (we thought ) to miss the bus to ES-Range the Swedish Space Corporation, where missiles and balloons are launched into sub-orbit.
Having missed the bus we managed to procure a knackered Volvo with which we hooned through the forest to catch up with our tour. Whilst there we were quite taken aback; like a scene from thunderbirds, albeit a dated thunderbirds; the equipment hasn’t changed since the sixties, but then it doesn’t need to, one big red button is enough!
We spent some of the afternoon touring the wilderness on snow-mobiles. It was huge fun but a little cold, zipping along at 87kph at -17 the wind chill picks up a tad, so we were careful to watch for frostbite on the face!
We had some time to work on the room, but are now about to head out ‘on the town’ with the locals for a beer or two. Not quite an early celebration of finishing, but well deserved social blitz none the less!
