Steaming in the early summer heat in India, I just came across a tour that I would really like to go on.
High Arctic Explorer, from Peregrine Adventures is a 11-night tour across the northern-most parts of the globe. Starting at Ottawa in Canada and traversing incredibly exotic ice covered patches such as Prince leopold Island, Devon Island, Grise Fjord and Wellington, this trip promises to give me all the cold, ice and snow I need for a lifetime – or at least to last out another summer in our country. Since this costs well above Rs 2.5 lakhs just for the tour (ie. exluding getting to Ottawa & back), you have to be sure you want to give up the 10,000 ice-creams that you can have for the same dough. I think I need time to think..
