Friday Photos – Greenland

It’s been a good week as we’ve finalized some travel plans for June. As I wrote just down there, we’ll be in London for the British exit referendum and, as it’s just around the summer solstice, while we’re there we’ll take a trip out to Stonehenge. We’re also planning stops in the French territory of St. Pierre and Miquelon, just off Newfoundland in Maritime Canada, and in St. John’s, Newfoundland’s capital. Then we’re up to Reykjavik for Iceland’s National Day on 17 June, and while we’re so close, we’re planning our second visit to Greenland, this time to the east coast, to the town of Tasiilaq, noted on this Google map:

The last time we visited Greenland I wrote about it as a chapter in my book Common Sense and Whiskey, and you can read the chapter here.

To mark our new visit, here are a few Friday photos from our previous trip, which was to the area around Disko Bay in the west.
