    Hi Doriana,

    I’m Lydias mom. Looking at your first video, I’m very excitet to see you hunting. Will it be your job to protect the group from attac of polar bears? ^^
    You must be very proud to have met the Canadian Minister for Environment. Will he support you and your buddies with our projects at Cape Farewell? Will Cape Farewell report on your projects later on? Is the climate in Svalbard similar to the climate of your home?

    Have lots of fun and great success with this voyage

    Hi Doriana, (Babyla)

    We are so excited for you on your voyage.

    I am curious to know if there are any berries like paugat, aapik and plants where you are now. Are the wild flowers and vegetation on the land same as the tundra (for example, the same growth/height/abundance like in Chester area)?

    Take care and have fun.

    Our Executive Director for the Kivalliq Health and Social Services wants to know if you came across the small island north of Norway. His father came from there and their last name is Hatlevik! I know this is not a question relevant to your voyage, but just curiuos

    Hi Doriana,
    I found out about your trip through the NIYC site just today. I was wondering what has been your worst and best experience so far? Do you have to a favourite place you’ve been? Anyway, those are my questions for now. Have a safe trip!
