As an Icelander growing up in Denmark, Greenland Has Existed the radar.
Since I was a young child, I have always been fascinated with all the icebergs, inuits, huskies and lifestyle into the ice. Along with the simple actuality that Santa Claus resides on Greenland… ( therefore the Danes believe ) made me enthused about it obviously.
However, traveling there felt like a remote dream. Leaving Denmark supporting a few years back, moving to Iceland, was a massive measure, bringing me closer to even consider moving there – both physically and emotionally. But, I waited patiently to get the right moment, the perfect reason to go. Assessing Eastern Greenland, on the 100 year old Danish Sailboat appeared as an perfect chance. Being a traditional lighthouse boat, employing a largely Icelandic group, I couldn’t have envisioned a more proper travel companion. It seemed to telephone my name out. Whilst sailing throughout the profound parts of Scoresby Sund (one of the worlds largest fjord systems), I would encounter many regions with names familiar to me personally, like places I had seen earlier in Denmark. However, this seemed almost funny, compared with their namesakes on Greenland. The vastness and grandness of those Greenlandic parts is just unimaginable. Take for example that the Iceberg photographed by drone seemingly huge – until you see it in a different angle, revealing it’s true miveness.
