Husky tour

We learned on the bus tour after we first arrived on Spitsbergen, that you can’t keep your huskies in your home. They make too much noise for residential areas, especially if you have a bunch of them. So there are these places out of town where dog owners can house their huskies. If you wantContinue reading “Husky tour”

Arctic adventures commence!

One month ago, I went on an amazing holiday! I travelled north, farther north than I’d ever been before. Early last summer, I had booked a Northern Lights tour to Sommarøy -near Tromsø, Norway- and Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen (or: Svalbard). I had booked this trip even before I went to Iceland at the end of lastContinue reading “Arctic adventures commence!”

And even when we were there, some rocks came tumbling down.Continue reading “Falling to pieces”

I’ve been to Dunedin before, so we decided to do things a little bit differently, and do other things than I’d done here before. We stayed at Hogwartz, a hostel I’d stayed at before and really liked, so I thought itContinue reading “Dunedin alternatively”
