September 12 and 13, 2019
The port of departure for the MOSAiC expedition was Tromsø, Norway. With students from all over the world, much travel was needed. A small group, including Mauro, Neil, Francesca, Julika and Sam were able to meet and take the train, saving a little carbon footprint for those of us not able to travel this way. Coming from Canada, long travel days were necessary to limit the number and length of flights, I spent many hours in airports between these two days. Happily, myself and all my luggage arrived in Tromsø. After a midnight bus ride, I checked in to my hotel and was so happy to finally see a bed.
I was relieved to be reunited with these bags at the carousel in Tromsø. They contained precious items like Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Super Nibs and chai tea – important comfort items on an icebreaker
