Greenland is a land of small towns, and this one’s population is about the same as the cruise ship’s. It was pretty funny watching 3000 passengers try to fit into the town’s only gift shop.
That dirty snow you see in the gap is the beginning of the polar ice cap. Check it out before it melts.
We traveled up a fjord in Greenland and found this ice field.
Cruising off the coast off Greenland we spotted several things: A large iceberg, whales (actually didn’t see these, but heard reports), and a bright object in the sky; we hear it’s called the sun.
I liked this juxtaposition of Iceberg and its mortal enemy, Hot Tub:
Ahhh… nothing like fresh caught iceberg:
And so we set out for a three week adventure, first to London, then a peculiar repositioning cruise that will take us to odd places on the way back to New York. Our morning flight from Orlando left us a loooong layover in Atlanta, the price to be paid for free first class tickets on the red eye to London. After hanging out in the Delta lounge we head out over the Atlantic.
