Thank you so much everyone for your sweet comments and good luck wishes! I took the exam a couple of hours ago and I didn't think that it had gone too well. I made some mistakes with my grammar, mixed things up in my presentation and used some Swedish words. But the results have already come through and I got a B! I was so relieved and proud of myself that I was sitting here crying! Thank you for all of your support, you are all so lovely!
On Saturday I promised you a post about beautiful skies and gorgeous landscapes, polar bears and snow, so today I'm going to tell you about a place called Svalbard.
I first heard about this mystical place when I read Philip Pullman's Northern Lights. Have any of you read it? Svalbard is the northernmost part of Norway, an archipelago in the Arctic region. It has a population of just 2,394 people as well as many polar bears and reindeer!
The island has polar nights during the winter, (where the sun stays below the horizon for more than 24 hours) and during the summer it is possible to see the midnight sun. Of course it is a beautiful spot from which to see the Northern Lights, since it is so far north.
I dream of going there. I've heard that it is incredibly beautiful!
What is your dream destination? I'd like to go to Svalbard and Iceland. I also have a little dream of going to Hawaii, since I'd like to see the stars from there. I've heard it's possible to see the milky way :)
