“It’s hard to believe the scenery is real…”

Published on 21.04.2009 - Baffin Babes

The four friends in the Baffin Babes expedition did an excellent job building up their strength at Clyde River. Good food and dinner with the locals every evening. But they have been 'back into the wild' again since 14th April...

In the world of polar exploration and adventure, it is unusual to see the people involved -male or female -enjoy their trip as much as these four girls as they drink in the sheer beauty of everything surrounding them.

First of all, the Babes relate that they received an extraordinary welcome at Clyde River, with the two local cops who looked after them making sure that they met a whole heap of amazing people. Last Sunday (12th April), they even organised an excursion to the coast lasting several hours: exquisite, according to Ingebjoerg, the girl who had stayed behind in Longyerarbyen initially to recover from illness.

But since 14th April, the four Baffin Babes have been on their way again to the north of the island, along with their dogs and sledges. And there again everything is just beautiful: perfect weather, excellent ice conditions, dogs in great shape, scenery to take your breath away (you'd think they didn't have any problems at all) and a good atmosphere within the group.

And it certainly isn't a few minor stomach aches in recent days, caused no doubt by poorly boiled water, that is going to bring down their morale.
