One piece of business: AirInsight has a lot of videos from the Paris Air Show, interviews with key people. Go here for the full listing.
And we’re off….
Long-time readers know we like to do unusual things–like our trip to far north Alaska in 2010, photographing polar bears, musk ox, the Northern Lights and driving the 550 mile haul road (well, others did the actual driving) between Fairbanks and the oil fields. Or like our African photo safari trip in 2000. Or or DC-7B excursion. And more recently our DC-3 ride.
We’re at it again. We’re off to Svalbard.
The most common reaction we get is a blank stare, followed by “where’s that?”
The maps show where it is.
We’re going for the wildlife, including polar bears (again). For what it’s worth, Svalbard is also where seeds from plant life all over the world are stored in case mankind is stupid enough to blow ourselves up, providing a source to reintroduce plant life.
We’ll also be stopping elsewhere in Scandinavia. We’ll be gone through July 10. We may have limited opportunity to post while we’re gone (our travel stuff, not aviation stuff).
