  • Vlissingen naar Spitbergen een prachtige reis
Jan Jaap Schijf

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Ortelius

De reis van Vlissingen naar Spitsbergen was prachtig. Veel mooie dingen gezien. Veel lezingen over onderwerpen m.b.t. de reis. Lezingen van gepassioneerde gidsen. De beleving van het hoge noorden, wat we gezien hebben, Spitsbergen maar ook Jan Mayen eiland was om nooit te vergeten. Prima eten aan boord. Gezellig inforeel contact met de bemanning. Wel wat te krap in de eetzaal en rond het buffet. En te warm in onze hut. Het schijnt dat een renovatie voor de hutten in die gang nog niet rond was. While I was on the shore at the edge of the water waiting to go to the walrusses, two of them came swimming towards us. The cam as close as 5 meters and I stood more or less face to face with one of them. I tould him what a wordefull trip I had so far. He nodded and swam off!
