“Travelling, -it leaves you speechless, and then turns you in to a storyteller”

Its just like this I feel when being in the field. It is incredible how small one can feel, how breathless one can become and quiet. Sometimes when hiking not a word is spoken, as if we try to blend in to the quietness of the Greenlandic nature.This years survey was one of the most beautiful and fulfilling!

 We travelled from ice dammed lakes up to webs of small valleys.
