These are some of the photos from my trip to Svalbard. This is the closest I have come to the north pole. I saw an arctic fox, reindeer and seal. I visited the northern-most night club of our planet. I saw the northern-most museum, and took a scenic tour around an old Russian settlement, which has now been abandoned.
Walking in the settlement area of Longyearbyen was scary, and I was always looking over my shoulders to check on hungry polar bears, which are know to loom around in search for food.
