On the ice-Day 1


I am in Greenland!

This morning Keith and I woke up at 0530 and went for a walk on the snow. Our body clocks are pretty out of whack after all the travel and the time difference. I was semi tempted to find an icy pool to plunge into, but didn't come across one. I settled for a hot shower instead.

Standing in the shower I tried to get my head around what lay ahead of me, but it was too overwhelming. I miss my partner so much, when i get like this in my head she can bring me back to earth. The thought of being reunited keeps me positive...

I headed back to my room and began to pack everything into dry bags.

We had lunch and a meeting then got prepped to be picked up. Before i knew it we were climbing up into the back of a big unimog, the drive was two hours long. Reality began to sink in as we drove across the snow, it was getting colder and colder. The snow and ice stretched on as far as the eye could see. Beautiful but daunting.
