In 2010, there is no doubt in my mind that my trip to the Arctic was the highlight. You can read about it in my August entries. Our trip left from Toronto. We flew to Greenland (Kangerlusuak) and boarded a ship for our adventure. The approximate itinerary can be seen below.


Our itinerary changed due to weather, ice conditions, and the need to meet the Canada customs agents who, due to hotel space, had to go to Qiqiqtarjuaq instead of Clyde River. What an experience!


  1. Traveling along to the Arctic via your blog was wonderful for me, too, Susan. It was a birthday trip to remember.

  2. I can’t help but chuckle at the though of having to change the itinerary to rendezvous with a customs agent at such a remote part of the world.

  3. It was a real adventure that you'll always remember. Thanks for sharing it with all of us through your pictures.
