Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Ny Alesund Norway

we arrived Ny Alesund Spitsbergen early morning into a misty day,but, when it lifted the scenery IS the highlight of this trip so far!! The snow covered mountains,the pristine ocean littered with icebergs that confronted us is AWESOME.We took the tender to shore and had a look around the scientific home for a few and was inspired by the setting !! I cannot imagine how harsh the winters must be here.Although the sun was shining the temperature got up to 3 %! and I have to say it was comfortable enough for us to take our top coats off !! The village also boasts the most northern Post Office & Pub in the world !! Just to get an official stamp we sent ourselves a post card .We said farewell to the isle in style by blasting out LOUD classical music at the blunt end of the ship.Evening pre dinner we were given a back stage talk by the kids who have been putting on excellent shows and 2 of the girls are from Blackpool.After dinner we went to the movies and watched Marigold Hotel (my second viewing) and we were in bed by 1 am with closed curtains !(the midnight sun isnt helping Annie to sleep !!)
