Svalbard 3

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Svalbard is a small society. Yet it´s like a whole little country. You can get just about anything here, it´s very self-sufficient. That is, almost everything is imported, mainly from Norway. 2500 people living here. The main work-places are the coal-mining industry, the university with students from all over the world, public services and sales, […]

Svalbard: dogs and glaciers

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

A new day, yet another adventure. This time old-style with dogs and sleighs. I was the passager, Anne the driver. We had 6 dogs pulling the sleigh, and for several hours today, this was my view: One of our dogs. Some husky, some other breeds, all used to the extreme cold. But still enjoying the […]

Svalbard – Barentsburg

Saturday, April 5th, 2014

A new day, a new adventure! I was invited along with a couple of friends to Barentsburg. It´s easiest to go there in winter by snow-scooter, it´s only about 2-3 hours from LongYearCity. Ready to take on the Arctic desert. Or space, for that matter! Barentsburg is a Russian city in Svalbard. Like LongYearCity, it´s […]

Svalbard 2

Friday, April 4th, 2014

In 2012, Svalbard had an estimated population of 2,642, of whom 439 were Russian and Ukrainian, 10 were Polish and 322 were other non-Norwegians living in Norwegian settlements. The largest non-Norwegian groups in Longyearbyen in 2005 were from Thailand, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, and Germany. Svalbard is among the safest places on Earth, with virtually no crime. Maybe since the landscape is either snow-white […]

Svalbard

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

Taking an early morning plane, I wake up to the captain´s voice: “And as you can see, we are now approaching our destination”. Looking out the window, this is what I see: A sight for Gods! Something I´ve never seen before and that fills me with awe. It feels like I´m at the end of […]

Fuhr´s

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

What an exciting adventure! Last week I was invited to Grimstad, on the Southern coast of Norway, to visit my new friends, Tore and Bente. I spent the day and night in their summerhouse, it was just so lovely! They´re such generous and kind people, I felt right at home! One of the things Tore […]

Ice, ice baby!

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

New experience! I´ve been glacier hiking! For the first time in my life. And it was such fun! The Nigards glacier is an arm of the Jostedals glacier. Equipped with mountain boots, spikes, ice-ax and tied together with a rope. Cool! This is fun! And the reason I´m here: To get some cool photographs! (literarily) We […]

the Grandest of them all

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Driving under a big sky…. Driving over a big prairie… Arriving at a big canyon… The grandest of them all… All this grandeur makes me feel small… In a good way.

Las Vegas

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

From the wilderness to wildness! This couple greeted us in the lobby of our Las Vegas hotel. After the tired motel, it was more the a pleasant surprise to be upgraded to a suite in one of the main hotels on the strip. On the 30th floor, looking over at the Caesar´s Palace. Las Vegas […]
