Svalbard, February-March 2020
650 km from the North Pole in the middle of the Arctic Ocean there lies an archipelago that is so cold and remote that it is home to the Global 'Doomsday' Seed Vault which keeps all the world's seeds safe in case of a large disaster.
It was in 2020 that I embarked on this journey to Svalbard. As I stepped onto the icy terrain, the crisp air filled my lungs, and the vast expanse of glaciers and fjords stretched out before me. It was a surreal experience, feeling so small amidst the grandeur of the Arctic wilderness.
