Mumbai: Actor and fitness enthusiast Milind Soman, who celebrated his 52nd birthday in Norway earlier this month, says experiencing the northern lights was on his wishlist.
"The beauty of the northern lights has always been on my wishlist of nature's gorgeous wonders to explore, and what better opportunity than my own birthday to indulge. I spent my time in the Arctic living like the locals do, from gazing at the northern lights right from the balcony of my Airbnb homes to exploring the gorgeous snow-capped locales within Tromso and Oslo," Milind said.
During his trip to Oslo and Tromso, Milind was also able to stick to his routine. He was also seen exploring Norwegian roads while indulging in running. He also updated fans about his activities via social media posts, in which he is seen sprinting through the snowcapped Tromso with the temperature dipping to minus 4 degrees celsius.
He kept to his morning yoga sessions and took a morning run in minus 4 degrees.
"It was truly a perfect and unique birthday retreat."
