East coast

25th-26th April 2015 – I can repeat the text of the last blog entry here with just some minor adaptions without feeling bad about it. Sometimes it is so easy. Life does not have to be complicated up here, it does not have to be different every day. The arctic is beautiful. Enjoying it is the main point. That’s it.

Of course it is nevertheless nice to discover new places. Such as Moskusdalen on the eastern side of Sassendalen. Many drive past Moskusdalen on the way to the east coast, few bother to have a look. But it is a beautiful place. Not big and spectacular. Small, silent, beautiful. It has even got an old hut, another secondary hut built by the famous Hilmar Nøis, probably in the 1920s or 1930s.

And now, as promised, the slightly adapted repetition of the last blog’s text ☺

The scenic beauty of Sassendalen and Mohnbukta cannot be praised too often. The better if you have the opportunity to enjoy this arctic paradise not just for a few hours, but for some days. You don’t have to do a lot, the polar cinema is playing an endless film of sheer beauty. Just watch nature through the window of a cousy cabin for a while. You will constantly discover new details and be amazed by the changing light and atmosphere. Great midnight sunsets.
