Me on the Greenland Ice Sheet in September 2017. Just one of the things that has kept me occupied since the last time I posted here on this blog.

I haven’t written anything for half a year – how on Earth can that be?! I think about it nearly every day, and I certainly have had lots of exciting moments. I make reminders to myself to write about the little ideas I jot down here and there. But I write SO much in my daily job that I think I just get burned out…

So I’m killing two bird with one stone here and giving a shameless plug to read my latest writing about Greenland over on 🙂

  1. Always enjoy your posts about Greenland! My wife and I just booked a trip to Nuuk for almost two weeks days this coming May, and many of your posts have been part of the inspiration for our trip. We’re especially looking forward to hiking around the Nuuk area. What are your favorite hiking spots around Nuuk for mid-late May? I enjoyed your summaries of Store Malene and Kingittorsuaq—are those still too snowy in May for hiking without a guide? Thanks so much, and I hope you keep up your blog.

    • Hi Stephen, thank you so much for your wonderful words. In mid- to late-May there is usually still quite a bit of snow on Ukkusissat (Store Malene) and lots of snow on Kingittorsuaq. Because Kingittorsuaq is higher than Ukkusissat, it typically keeps a snowy north face year round. Are you on Instagram? I can tag you in a picture or two I have with the mountains in the background, so you can get a visual for it. Otherwise, in late-May for hiking there is the trip around Quassussuaq (Lille Malene) which is nice and relaxing. Otherwise, I recommend going into the fjord where it’s warmer and all the snow has melted. There’s nice hiking around the Qooqqut area, plus there are cabins there for rent 🙂
      Best regards,

  2. Hey, Sarah, Glad to see your reappearance! I lost track of you for a while. Seeing in this post that you also do IG, I “followed” you nthere as well. Looking forward to future posts.

    • Hi,
      Thank you so much 🙂
      I hope you get to plan a trip to Greenland one day!
