To Longyearbyen Airport, Spitsbergen, from Oslo, on Norwegian Air Shuttle or SAS
The mountains that gave the Germanic name to Spitsbergen ("pointed mountains").
Arrival at Longyearbyen Airport, Spitsbergen, Svalbard. BEWARE ...
... a Norwegian special zone with autonomous Russian administered areas (Barentsburg, Pyramiden). TAX FREE ...
... FULL OF SHIT: "Take off your shoes and leave your guns outside!"
Many of the MIGRANT WORKERS carry guns - against icebears, or to shoot fece in their faces, out of frustration ...
Especially at the worst chain hotel in Europe - Middle East - Africa: the Radisson Spitsbergen,
owned by the HurtigROTTEN, pardon me Hurtigruten company, a complete disgrace to the Carlson Rezidor Group.
Norway? No way!
the worst fece face (source: wikipedia)
Norway is only for the mediocre mass tourists and middle class merchants. Sorry, but I want excellence, quality and service, not communism, bland gastronomy and prole attitudes.
Longyearbyen impressions after midnight in April (the sun never sets)
When the dawgs get out to play
A happy first time musher
Beautiful ride ...
... through the valleys and mountains
