Welcome to…in the Arctic.
“It was Arctic cold and everyone had a great time.”Mary O’Brien
Life, truly is, an adventure. I am a Nova Scotian living in the Canadian Arctic. I have been living here on and off for almost 10 years.
In this blog I will discuss and inform about the oddities that makes living in the Arctic so unique. With return flights from Ottawa to Iqaluit reaching upwards of $3000.00, you can’t just ‘visit’ the North and most Canadians will never see this majestic part of Canada. The #1 reason I live here? The people! Each time I travel back home I am asked soooo many questions and everyone is fascinated by my stories.
I’ve lived in Naujaat, Rankin Inlet, Inuvik and most recently I moved to Iqaluit in 2016 with two tweens and our dog in tow. Our intention was to have a 10 month adventure and then to return to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island where we had been living for 13 years. But, we are still in Iqaluit, almost 4 years later. Those tweens are now teens and we have added a cat to the family!
Read my blog and let me show you some of my life…in the Arctic.
