Copenhagen-Ilulissat

This is it, I’m finally in Greenland! I flew to Copenhagen last night because I needed to catch an early flight to Kangerlussuaq. CPH turned out to be warm, and the hotel room even warmer. I couldn’t make it cool even after opening two windows and I could barely sleep in that tropic heat (that’s what it felt like for me). But I didn’t care, there’s always coffee.

The flight to Greenland was uneventful, apart from sitting next to Patient Zero for 4.5 hours. The price I paid for choosing a window seat… let’s see if I dodged the bullet. And the window seat wasn’t all that useful, because the Atlantic was covered in clouds. We flew over Iceland and I saw some glimpses of the country below, and also over Greenland there were just some small gaps in the clouds. On the other hand, it was all white so I wasn’t sure when I was looking at a glacier or clouds.

At Kangerlussuaq, I met the other people in the group. A nice bunch! Then it was onto a small propeller plane to fly the last stretch to Ilulissat.

Everybody got their own room. Very nice, and tropical heat is not a problem for sure. The hotel is right by the water and I can see the icebergs from the window! If I see something photogenic, just open the balcony door and shoot!

Since we arrived in the afternoon, we had time for a couple of shooting sessions. Nothing quite serious yet, it was mostly to get to know each other and for the guides to talk to us and see how we shoot.

Greenland is four hours behind Sweden, and when you add the poorly slept night, I was dead beat by 10pm. But this should also mean that it’s easy to adjust to the time zone!
