Heavy jackets are not required indoors.
What I am wearing:
Dress: Gift from a dear friend.

Bracelets: Swarovski. Bought in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Greenland was freezing cold. We wore innumerable layers of clothes and the boots that weighed about 7 kgs to walk on the snow. The hand would freeze, the moment I took it out of gloves to click a picture from the camera. As soon as I removed the cap, the head was numb, the nose and ears froze. The natives felt less cold as compared to us. I was told, that the reason was that they ate meat of whale and consumed fish oil. Vegetables and fruits were hard to get there. We lived on bread and some nuts etc that we had taken along with us. The chef also prepared some pasta for us and some boiled potatoes, canned beans, etc. More detailed stories about Greenland will be posted soon. For now, some of my crazy attempts to pose for yoga poses on the snow, wearing all the layers and heavy boots. This is as adventurous as I could get.
Dog sledding in Greenland is the most traditional way of transportation during winters. We were transported from the tiny airport to our hotel in a helicopter. Arctic temperatures and several meters of snow are no match for the natural impressions and cultural twist that will warm your soul while dog sledding in Greenland. There’s something about experiencing Greenland’s majestic landscapes from the perspective of a dog sled. Maybe it is the slower pace that gives plenty of time to take in all the impressions or maybe it is the combination of sled dogs panting plus the rhythmic beat of their large paws, a sound that is suddenly magnified against a backdrop of pure silence.
