Currently I am working on the ship in the Arctic. I just completed the first of altogether 8 trips around Svalbard and Northeast Greenland. At the most recent trip I saw 6 polar bears in the pack ice North of Svalbard, one mum with 2 cups. Photos were unfortunately spoilt by dense fog. Our ship also made the first circumnavigation of Spitsbergen this season as the Hinlopen Strait is still blocked by thick pack ice. In a few hours I will be leaving for my second trip.
