spitsbergen-svalbard.com Easter brainteaser

Update: I haven’t got an answer so far that really hits the nail on the head. The question will remain open and entries can be filed until the answer appears as a new spitsbergen-svalbard.com news entry.

An Easter brainteaser on spitsbergen-svalbard.com? Yes, why not. I took the photo recently here in Spitsbergen. And the first one who can tell me what it shows will receive any item (your choice) of the books, postcards or calendar on this website (see right side or click here). The second and third incoming answers – being correct – have the choice within postcards or calendar. Entries by email (contact).

Not difficult, is it?

The answer has to be correct and concrete. Everything that is not wrong is correct, unless it is wrong. I (Rolf Stange) decide if it is concrete (someone has to do it). It is not enough to write that it is a bit of Spitsbergen. This would be correct, but not concrete.

To make it easier, you can download a larger file of the same photo by clicking here.

Good luck – and happy Easter!

Easter weekend in Bjørndalen

(4th/5th April 2015) After some calm early April days, it is time to get out again when the Easter weekend is approaching. Everybody here who has some means of transportation and possibly even access to one of the nowadays much sought-after huts is absconding from zivilisation, and I am happy to be part of that. It does not have to be far and adventurous. That is one of Longyearbyen’s nice aspects: the arctic wilderness starts as soon as you have passed the last house.

For many here, Bjørndalen is something like a city park in a wider sense. It is easy to get there by car or snow mobile, and there is a number of huts in local ownership near the Isfjord coast. This is where I spend this lovely weekend. All inclusive! Scenic views of the wide Isfjord, good food in good company, and small things are searched for by those who still believe in the Easter bunny, hidden by those who know better. At least in this case.

There is no Easter bunny in Bjørndalen, but Arctic fox and ptarmigan are at home there. I will have to spend some more time here, soon.
