Day 6

Finally the weather improves and Trond takes the time to go exploring. It’s really weird – Svalbard is mostly empty, few plants, no trees or bushes, no animals except birds and the odd fox or reindeer (unless you happen to be in the right spot you’re unlikely to see a polar bear), but when you do stumble upon a pile of garbage or a smashed cottage to testify of human presence it’s a protected cultural heritage site. It can certainly be magnificent, but mostly it’s very – well – empty…
