    We arrived in port at 7am. Had to have the bags outside the door at 7am with a green tag to show that we weren't catching the early flight out. We had breakfast and said goodbye to a few people and then had to just hang around until it was time to leave. We were called just after 8am and went down to the wharf and collected our suitcase and stowed …

    Our last day in Svalbard. Today would be a twofold exploration of the past. Part One was a fossil hunting expedition on the arctic tundra. Ours was a small group, both our guide and the other couple, hailing from Copenhagen. The other important member of todays group was a friendly and energetic husky named Kinda. We set off on foot, north of our guesthouse, in the same direction as our previous glacier hike. However today, once across the river, rather than go left up ...

    Glacier Hike

    It could be the best hike I have ever done. For its location, its difficulty, the variety of terrain, the views, the quality guide and group, or the fun of walking on a glacier. For poor Natalie it almost didn't happen. She woke this morning feeling particularly sickly. At breakfast before our pickup time of 9am, she was contemplating cancelling. By the days end, we would both be delighted she decided to go ahead with our hiking adventure.
    It started from our guesthouse, ...
