Nuuk torraaaaaak

A 15 minute journey to work took us a little over an hour as we ooooh’d and aaaah’d at the sunrise, ravens, icicles, snow… It has become a habit to go and stand by the water and just stare out at the icebergs flowing by slowly. As our dear friend Lisa would put it ‘there is no time – it’s timeless…’
