Walking On Top of The Greenland Ice Sheet

kangerlussuaq-greenland-ice-cap

After freezing my butt off at negative 39 degrees centigrade, a little increase in temperature was more than welcome. Granted, -29 is still bloody cold, but that 10-degree increase makes an absolutely massive difference. On this particular day it was very cloudy, which has both pros and cons. On the pro side – heavy cloud […]

Ever been so utterly enchanted with something that you lose track of time? If not, then I implore you to book a winter flight from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq – and by god, make sure you have the window seat. After a pleasant four-hour flight (Air Greenland – you bloody rock) it was time to descend […]

A Few Hours in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has always been a city on my ‘to do’ list, so naturally, when it came time to book my flights back to Greenland, it made sense for me to fly via Copenhagen instead of Reykjavik – as I had done in the past. After a gruelling 33 hours of flights and layovers, I landed […]

ilulissat-greenland-hotel-arctic

Given that this ‘city’ is much more of a small town, Ilulissat is the sort of place which you could go your entire life without hearing about.

A Weekend in Marion Bay, South Australia

dolphin-marion-bay-south-australia

As much as I love living in the Top End, it does have its downsides – the biggest one being that I don’t get to see my best friends all that often. Sure, I have friends up in Darwin, but it just isn’t the same as being surrounded by the people that you’ve known for […]

koh-kood-soneva-kiri

Travelling leads to a persons life being unpredictable and sometimes even downright strange! Most mornings I wake up where one would expect to – namely, my hostel or hotel bed.

“Eh.” – The Places That Just Didn’t Knock My Socks Off

london-eye-england

When it comes to travelling, I am yet to meet a person who has loved each and every place they have ever visited. For whatever reason, sometimes we find that we just don’t mesh with a city, and as a result, may not remember it all that fondly. Furthermore, the cities that we fall in […]
