Icebergs and Auroras in Ilulissat

After spending two days on complete bedrest following a rather nasty accident, I was not exactly a happy chicken. I was in my favourite place in the world, but instead of exploring and enjoying it, I was stuck in a bed, eating junk food and watching old episodes of television shows that I had already […]

Banged Up Abroad: Injured in Ilulissat

Well bloody hell, I’ve now had one travel experience that I won’t be in a rush to repeat. Due to some unfortunate events on an organised dog sledding trip (dogs were boisterous, people were knocked, knees met a rock in a rather forceful manner) I ended up rather nastily injured. My left knee was slightly […]

Returning To The Ilulissat Icefjorden

I think Ilulissat may just be my most favourite place on Earth. I love the cold wind as it comes off the icebergs and laps my face. I love the sound of the Greenland dogs as they howl at the sun when it comes up. I love the burnt orange sunrises and the magenta sunsets. […]

Dog Sledding in Stunning Sisimiut

I landed into Sisimiut from Kangerlussuaq with high hopes and a lot of anticipation. Luckily, Sisimiut is one of those places that lives up to the hype. Located on the west coast of Greenland and home to approximately 5000 people, Sisimiut is the second largest town in all of Greenland. However, despite it being more […]

Travel Photography: Mastering The Art of The Self Timer Selfie

One of the perceived hazards of travelling independently is that with no travel companion, a person will have nobody around to help them capture amazing photographs of their travels. When I first started travelling this was most certainly something I struggled with. I hated asking strangers to take photos of me; for some reason it […]

A Little Sun and A Lot of Snow at The Amazing Russell Glacier

If you only do one thing while visiting Kangerlussuaq, then you should absolutely make it a trip to Russell Glacier. The route to Russell Glacier is much the same as that which leads to the ice cap. I thought that driving the same route for two days in a row would be boring, but as […]

Walking On Top of The Greenland Ice Sheet

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 […]

Welcome to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

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: The Ultimate City Guide

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. While this is completely understandable, it is also a little bit of a travesty. The third largest town in Greenland may only be home to around 3500 people, […]
