Amanda McIntyre braved a brisk wind and frigid temperatures at the North Cape of Norway where the Norwegian Sea meets the Barents Sea. The Northern-most point in Europe, Nordkapp, is marked by the globe sculpture pictured. Norway’s North Cape was the site of several naval incursions during WWII, and in 2009 the Trans-Europe Foot Race—a 2,000-mile event starting from Bari, Italy—ended there. A bike race from North Cape to the south of Norway is also held, and the record finish time is four days, 22 hours. McIntyre also visited a Thai museum at the site commemorating the 1907 visit of King Chulalongkorn. “I never miss a museum!” she reports.
