I Worked in Greenland 2010-15

In Greenland
I used to live in Greenland north of the polar circle, where I did teach sports/philosophy at the local gymnasium in Aasiaat, with students from all of northwest Greenland, what surely must be the largest recurring area in the world for a gymnasium. I might come with some tips on Greenland as I get some more time to do so. During my time in Greenland I also became a kayak instruktor ...educatede in the motherland of the kayak!

-so if you have any questions I am likely to be able to help you out.

Nature is the name of the game. You have it just outside your door here and you have to live by and with it. So it takes some knowledge and equipment to do so. But if you have that there is breathtaking adventures to be experienced in an unique environment. Be that during summer or winter.

My old student Karl-Peter (dark jacket in the back of the class) that has just won the danish championship is now competing in the world championships in Falun Sweden has just gotten 77 of 130 in the sprint.

…Hmm wonder why it could be hard to race the "kids" ;-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Adventure is just outside the doorstep
  • Cons:Expensive
  • In a nutshell:Cold - cool?

    The fog on your photos reminds me to recent Russian movie, How I Survived Last Summer. After I watched, I realized how dangerous and unpredictable, yet fascinating and beautiful Arctic is. I would go if I could :) Kayak looks fun.

    Hi Allan, hope you are well. I see it says you used to live here. Are you still in Greenland? It looks like you have a great place to work. Great hat, not so sure about the beard!

    Looks like a great place to be watching the Northern Lights from. I don't think I would be tough enough to kayak in that cold of water - I jumped into a dam here in Queensland Australia once and I thought it was so cold it took my breath away! What is the animal in the water in one of the photos?
