How do you describe something indescribable? It felt like I had been living in a parallel universe for 10 days…at the edge of the world physically and emotionally removed from reality. I had waited years for this trip, and usually when your expectations are as high as mine were, you are left disappointed. But that was not the case this time. We saw landscapes and animals I had previously only seen on TV. We made new amazing friends. We took the polar plunge in the Arctic sea. We partied in the sun at 2am. And most of all, there was peace. An indescribable, beautiful, peace that you can only experience in a place so totally removed from the outside world. What a blessing it was!
