A postcard just received from there and I googled it and found this particular post:
"An amazing journey in Norway's far North as Joanna Lumley pursues a lifelong dream to track down the elusive, stunningly beautiful Northern Lights - 'the true wonder of the world,' as she puts it.
Joanna grew up in tropical Malaysia, and as a little girl never saw snow or felt cold. Inspired by fairytales and picture books, she always longed to make the journey north. At last she travels north across the Arctic Circle, up through Norway to Svalbard, the most northerly permanently inhabited place on Earth, where she has to cope with temperatures approaching minus 30 degrees centigrade."

Pictures of my two daughters' recent visit...
Highlights of their stay included the husky ride as well as taking turns to 'drive' the husky sledge!
I don't deny I was worried... as a comparison: a young dad said he would not allow his son to attend Outward Bound School, where it involves going out to the sea!
