The trip was not without hiccups. At one point, I slipped on some ice and my camera almost went kaput. At another point, I became terribly sick and couldn’t even stick it out to see a couple of hip-hop acts that I really wanted to cover.
However, the good things outweighed the bad. We were fed well and got a lot of exercise hiking everyday from our residences to the dining hall! I discovered a lot of new music and felt my creativity soaring.
Here are some amazing snow storms that I was lucky enough to catch from the safety of the helicopter:
And this was what it looked like when the sun began to set!
Here is a photo that I took of my Scottish spirit animal, Kit, while we were speeding along Nuup Kangerlua in a boat. It looks like he was taking a cheeky selfie but in reality, he was clinging for dear life to the pole next to me.
This is Max, master lighting technician and all-round tripper. He kept me entertained during those long waits between bands.
Max, Jenny & Konstantin. I’m so grateful that Jenny and I met that first day in the airport!
