I have finished recount from Philippines. Now it is time to focus on my new journey.
Description of my trip:
In April 2018 for four weeks I am going to go to Greenland. I do not know what I will experience there, but I already know that I do not want leave that country :).
When I decided to visit the North Pole I figured out that I can do something to promote my beautiful region Suwalszczyzna – known as North Pole of Poland.
Mascot that symbolises the area that I come from is a Polar Bear, which of course going with me. We hope that he will have an opportunity to meet his real, polar friends.
If someone have told me 4 years ago that I would be visiting Greenland, I would have not believed that at all. I would have laughed :).
Now I know that everything may happen. Changing the direction in your life requires a lot of hard work and motivation, but everything is possible.
I will also answer for three frequently asked questions.
Why I am going there?
Some of my friends are already joking that I am going to hunt a seal (in Polish slang seal means chick). I do not have that in my plans, but everything can happen :D.
To be serious, I need to admit that I am going there, because I would like to see something different than European cities. I realize that Greenland is a cold place and I can forget about the sunbathing on the beach. There are no any bigger agglomerations – the biggest city called Nuuk has a bit over than 15 thousands of people. There is a lot of space and nature instead. Maybe this is my place on the Earth – who knows.
What are you going to do for a month?
I want to try as much regional food as I can, including seals’ (animal) and whales’ meat. I am also planning dog sledding, “hunting” with camera and some kayaking. I will visit bigger cities and small villages. The most important for me is to meet local people and get to know their culture.
Are not you afraid?
You can buy gun in the supermarkets but this is not something that make me scared.
Obviously, everywhere where you are going you need to have to think twice and be careful.
