Skiing by the fiord

Published at 19:24
Dispatch created from email
We're at the Barentz Bar, sated on pizza, beer and wine (and Coke for Nacer) after an afternoon of skiing by the fiord. We found a great location that mimics what we will find on the Arctic Ocean - ice floes set in a jigsaw pattern, their ends almost touching with span just enough to cross on skis. OK, so they were grounded on the fiord bed but once on the ocean we will have 4km of water beneath us.

Any sojourn out of Longyearbyen has a risk of polar bear, slim but there, so we are armed
with rifle (and two snipers!). On occasions a bear has wandered into town and some years ago a girl was taken on the very hill we climbed yesterday.

Our flight out is now scheduled on the 8th, we are as ready as can be and feel as though we'll be launching from the blocks. Eric

I’d like to write my opinion that the expense of car insurance varies from one insurance plan to another, due to the fact there are so many different facets which contribute to the overall cost. Such as, the model and make of the auto will have a massive bearing on the price. A reliable outdated family motor vehicle will have an inexpensive premium compared to a flashy sports vehicle.
