    Favorite thing: I thought this shot was amazing. Looks cloudy right?
    Its very hard to see but the pilot came on and said that this was actually snow,it was clear below!There where mountins 15000 feet high, with 10000 feet of snow on top, equaling 25000 feet above sea level. We were at 41000 ft high for a usual plane flight.

    Fondest memory: When I was in Thule, the water in the harbour was still frozen solid. Walking on the ice, I went over to this iceberg, and was able to touch it which was such an awesome feeling. The colours were so blue and green, and the ice that I was walking on was so smooth, smoother than anything I'd ever seen, before or since.

    Favorite thing: Owing to the country's large landmass there are huge variations with regard to both humidity and temperature. Climatologically, a distinction is made between a northern high-arctic, middle low-arctic and southern subarctic zone. The richest plant growth is found in the subarctic belt, which includes only the very southernmost part of Greenland. Here, there are low-lying tracts of forest with birch scrub, while in the low-arctic area one finds dense, tall willow scrub. In the high-arctic area, there is only low-lying vegetation of arctic willow, in addition to many expanses of moorland, marsh and ponds.

    Favorite thing: In 1721, with the aid of the Danish king, a Norwegian priest called Hans Egede successfully mounted an expedition to Greenland, where he wished to rechristianize the Northerners. Greenland did not become part of Denmark before in 1953. The colonial age was at an end, and like the Faeroe Islands, Greenland too was now given two members in The Folketing (the Danish parliament).As Danish citizens, the Greenlandic people now had ordinary civic rights and their general state of health and educational facilities were radically improved.

    Fondest memory: The Init hunters look for seals by binoculars. They try to get up their boat or and iceberg scanning the wide open ice sea trying to locate a spot.

    Favorite thing: This 'Road' is the pathway of a Glacier! The glacier was on the other side of the plane so I did not get a shot in time....
