My stay here on Svalbard has been great - in every way! However, I’ve only got two more weeks here before I have to go back to Tromsø and finish my thesis. I do look forward to getting back to a more temperate climate though - the Yeti in the picture above is actually me, walking home from school in -25° C and wind. Living on Svalbard is in many ways a fight; a fight against the elements, the cold and the dark, but when you realize that you actually do survive it’s all very rewarding.
You can still read all about it in my Svalbard blog (Norwegian only).
