Greenland at last!!!
We were met at the airport by several members of the Expedition Team from the MS Fram. After a short bus ride through the rocky landscape surrounding Kangerlussuaq we arrived at the pier. A dock in the middle of nowhere!

We were all tired after a long day of travelling. For many of us it was two days to get to Kangerlussuaq. Despite being a little road weary it was quite exciting to see the Fram at anchor in Kangerlussuaq Fjord. Our new home for the next week!
We were introduced to Polar Cirkle boat procedures and life jackets and then whisked to the ship.
Once on the ship we were very efficiently checked in, photographed and then issued ID cards. We were also shown to our cabins. At 20:30 there was a mandatory safety drill after which we were welcomed by the Captain and introduced to some of the key members of the ship's compliment.

Now it is time to kick back, relax and explore Greenland.
Tomorrow's adventures await in Sisimiut!
