On our way North we stopped at Jan Mayen. A small volcanic island in the North Atlantic, often battered by waves and wind and impossible to land on. There are two possible landing sites, on either side of the island. Last year we weren’t able to land on either of the two, this year we could do both. Most of the guests walked from one side of the island to the other, I was stuck on the ship. But I had the opportunity to land on both sides and have a look at the moon-like landscape. Black beaches, due to the volcanic activity, very barren and little vegetation, it really looked otherworldly. I wish we could have stayed longer and spent more time exploring this island, but far too soon we had to continue further north. Maybe one day I’ll be back to see more of this very special island.
