Welcome to Arctic Daily!

A daily glimpse of my time in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard as Logistics Engineer for the AWIPEV polar research station.

Farewell Ny-Ålesund!

Farewell Ny-Ålesund!

After 15 incredible months up here in the northernmost community, it is time for me to head down south. This time has been incredibly busy and enriching, and there is not the slightest doubt that I will cherish all the many memories created here and the people I made them with.

However the sadness that leaving this place inspires me is very well balanced by the fact that I am heading out kayaking with my brother. Thus I head out towards two more weeks of pure Svalbard adventure just like I learned it during my stay.

For those interested, we will carry an InReach beacon that allows us to send our position every now and then, and you can follow us here: https://eur-share.inreach.garmin.com/SallySofieHovelsJensen

That also means there will be a lot more pictures coming after we finish the trip, and the site will keep lively for quite some more time!

Ciao!
