A long journey started at 5 am as the alarm went off in the bedroom. A drive to Heathrow, flight to Oslo, onward to Tromso and then final hop to Svalbard and Longyearbyen airport was need before our arctic adventure could start.

As we walked into the arrival hall we looked around for our guide but no one was seen. People were trooping out to buses that had arrived to take the planes passengers into town so, with nothing else to do, we carried our bags and jumped on board. Thanks be to modern technology, the ‘grumpy’ driver was able to take payment by credit card.
