Sarah started this blog in diary form in May 2012 to chronicle her Visit Greenland internship/first trip to Greenland in connection with her Master degree studies in the tourism field. The early posts are very frequent and tell of Sarah’s everyday life living with a host family in Nuuk, the capital city, plus a few special trips: 10 days in North Greenland and a week on the Arctic Umiaq Line coastal ferry, Sarfaq Ittuk.
Now, many years later, the blog has transformed into more of an inspirational/informational resource for travelers dreaming about or planning a trip to Greenland, and the posts are unfortunately few and far between. On the other hand, Sarah has found a new platform to chronicle every and anything about life at the top of the world. For a view of daily life – the exciting and the mundane – follow her on Instagram at @polarphile.
This blog is entirely a personal pursuit. It is in no way funded by or required by any person or business in Greenland.
