On the Way to Island

We are at the middle of Denmark Strait but if we look outside it looks more as we are somewhere at Caribbean Sea. No wind, no waves, no fog and no rain. It is really unbelievable weather, as for that region of the Atlantic Ocean.

Day at sea is usually the day when lecture program is at the full speed. Many of use the opportunity to learn more about what we have seen and what we might see at Island. It is also time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather on the outside decks.

Late afternoon we had Farewell Capitan’s Cocktail. Yes, our trip is getting in to the end. Just two more nights on board and we have to fly home. Right after that we had an auction of Hurtigruten flag which waved on MV Fram mast during our whole voyage, followed by auction of navigation chart of Greenland with our route marked on it. The chart was also beautifully decorated by one of our staff member, Greenlandic artist – Miki. All together we collected 1000 US dollars. The money will be donated to “Association for Greenlandic Children” to help the Greenlandic youth get better education.
