... for me, purely for the characterful and honest old lady. Strongly recommend if anyone is in Posio.
Within the next couple of days we head off north for a few hundred kilometers to Tromso-Norway.
From here the real test for Banksy will start, we will drive the entire length of Norway through tunnels, over bridges and over several mountain passes which include the scary one featured on Top Gear, Trollstigen.
