"The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above the water" - Sigmund Freud @ilovegreenland
It is hard to believe that what we see of an iceberg is only a small fraction if the whole structure, especially when passing an iceberg of the size of a multiple-story building.
Sailing alonsgide natural wonders like icebergs during the blue hour in Disko Bay, you can lose all sense of time and scale. We can't think of a better way to end the evening. by Stian Klo #greenland#greenlandadventures
The Greenlandic sled dog is simply amazing. It is strong built, its endurance is fantastic and it can withstand the extreme temparatures during the Arctic winter - They were brought from Siberia to North America by the Thule people and tests has proven that several Arctic dog breeds show a genetic closeness with the now-extinct Taymyr wolf.
The Greenland dogs live in packs or "teams" and in the Sirius Dogsled Patrol a pack is belonging to one sled and the two Sirius men. It is the same for the traditional Greenlandic hunters except that there is most often only one man who owns the pack of dogs and know how to control them. These dogs can seams quite brutal to each other when they are fighting to keep the hieraki, but treated well they are very lovely to humans - just like other dogs. Driving with such a pack of dogs for a little over two years was amazing and trying to understand them and make them cooperate was a very interesting process. The day I left the Sirius Patrol and had to say goodbye to these 15 friends was way harder than driving a dogsled in -50 degree celsius in deep snow... #expedition#siriuspatrol#dogsledding#nationalgeographic#dogs#bbcearth#arctic#lifeofadventure#liveauthentic#wildernessculture#earthofficial#earth_deluxe #awesomeearth#planetdiscovery#unlimitedplanet#greenland#ipreview
I am now using this cute pic of cats as an opportunity to ask strangers to stop sending me requests for cards/"my love is so big..." notes from Greenland. I get these everyday now. I won't do it unless you can give me a really good reason like actually being my personal friend or relative or maybe giving me a lot of money. Sorry. #publicnotice#cats#angryfinn#travel#people#amiright#greenland#myangerissobig
