Today our landing was in Itilleq. After a night/morning with rough sea, we arrived around 13:00 hours in the small village. The trip with the Polar Cirkel boats was a bit wet, but we made it and went ashore. Here the locals had arranged Kaffemik for us all around the village. Kaffemik is a Greenlandic tradition where cake, coffee and tea are served at events such as birthdays, weddings and so on.
Back onboard, we spent some time in the Observation Lounge, the Captains farewell cocktail and our auction for the benefit of Greenlandic children was held there. A nice goodbye to the amazing people we have been traveling with for the past week, I always think it is sad to say goodbye.
My name is Majken Anning Andreassen, I have been a trainee onboard since the end of May and my internship will end in the middle of July. I am from Tasiilaq on the east coast of Greenland, but I study a tourism management education in Qaqortoq, Southgreenland.
