Having just completed a 7 day tour of East Greenland, today I’m going to share some of my experiences and photos in the first of a travelogue style series of episodes. East Greenland was so much more than I expected, and in many ways much different. I hadn’t, for example,...

    Looks like a great start to the trip Martin and I agree on the surprising amount of colour you see in the rock (a favourite from our trip: http://www.tarajiblue.com/Polar/Arctic/i-FgPmWqD ). The words “Bluie East Two” seemed familiar and made me pause until I realised Ernest K Gann’s fabulous aviation book Fate Is The Hunter, which I’ve just finished reading, features Bluie West One which was in Narsarsuaq. Gann writes vividly but it’s quite something to see your images and conjure up ideas of what it would’ve been like back then, without a comfortable ship to escape to by Zodiac.

      Hi Alistair,

      Sorry for the delayed reply. I’m just catching up after my travels.

      What a beautiful shot you shared! Thanks!

      I’ll have to check out that book. I’m sure it would be great to read after visiting the area, and for sure, it must have been a very hard life once the winter set in.

      Cheers,
      Martin.
