Charlie and I made it back from the Actic and it was more spectacular than we imagined it would be.
I’ve already written an article about it…
“Maybe it was the deep isolation in a blue and white ice world; maybe it was the spectacular nature or a combination of both. Whatever it was, I could not wait to visit the land of the “midnight sun” with Quark this year, and this trip has left me reeling, just as the last one did.
We flew from Oslo to Longyearbyen, a small town on the island of Spitsbergen in the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic. From there, we boarded our Russian expedition ship, the Akademik Sergey Vavilov, with about 70 other passengers.
