Back home again

Beautiful demoiselle

Ok, holidays are over, time to work again! After a few days in Eibergen at my mom’s place (enjoy your retirement, mom!) where I finally had time to take a few dragonfly-shots again like this Beautiful Demoiselle, I flew up north again. It’s my 14th season in the Arctic now and it really feels like coming home… Well, almost, as I was quite frustrated that my luggage wasn’t coming home with me this time… Fortunately it arrived today, so now I can really enjoy again. Tonight we leave on the Noorderlicht for a 16 day cruise around the archipelago. Really looking forward to showing the beauty of the Arctic to our guests. I’m sure they will have a good time.

When I get back, I’ll try to show you some of our experiences as well, but for now you just have to wait as there are only few places with reception on Spitsbergen and we will be visiting none of them… Great, totally unconnected!

See you in 16 days!
