Im in Svalbard!

After a long day of flying we have finally made it to Svalbard. We took 4 flights and crossed 3 countries to get here but it is well worth the time. It is just breath taking. The mountains and the glaciers are like nothing that i have ever seen before. The land is so vast and enormous it is had to believe that humans could even live here.

          We are sailing today up to Ny-Alesund today. It is almost a 2 day trip and i am really looking forward to it. We have to do 3hr watches and i hope that mine is at sunrise. Today we are off to the school and shopping (a norwiegan kroner doesnt go far) then its off to sea.

Send your comments i want to hear from you and get my school as involved as they can be. My video is going up on the 19th at 12. Et un gros merci aux chums de RMC pour leurs commentaires, votre support est tres apprecier. Love you mum, dad and the others,

 Talk to you later,


p.s i hope that i dont get sea sick!

    Hi Shona,
    I emailed Mrs. Hoffman and all of your exchange friends from Major, Sask to let them know about the Cape Farewell expedition. Hopefully you will hear from them soon. I cant wait to see your live feed on Wednesday…I will be watching it on my computer. Good luck on the ship, have a great time.

    Hi Shona,

    You are navigating on a very beautiful boat.

    I would like to know if there are polar bears on this Island.

    Thank you,
