Love Letter to the Arctic

Me blogging twice in one week? I know, highly unusual but I really wanted to participate in Emma's themed travel link-up this month as I really like the topic: The place that you can't get out of your head!

Now, obviously I'm deeply in love with the Arctic (living there for over a year now) and not only do I live there but I also like to travel around in the world's cold areas. So I thought it would be about time to write a little love note to this corner of the world as despite the ups and downs living in the Arctic bring with it, I really hope I'll still live there in the future!

Dear Arctic,
I first got to know you in Tromso
I grew to like you at the North Cape
I got to know your dark side in the northernmost village of Europe
I decided to accept the good and bad of you and moved to Tromso
We had a rough winter...
... but in the springtime, we reconciled...
and in the summer, I fell in love with you even more when I visited Iceland and Greenland
Now I can't wait what the future holds for us in Tromso.
I'm looking forward to snowstorms and polar night, midnight sun and 10 degrees in summertime, hiking in the mountains and cuddling up on the couch afterwards.
It's not always easy but it's worth it!
Love, Van

Now, on a scale from 1 to 10, how cheesy was that? Anyway, linking up with Emma, Rebecca, Kelly and Liz.

Is there a place that is close to your heart? Where is it and what is so special about it!
