Longyearbyen – Final day
Another gorgeous day greeted us this morning. Following an excellent breakfast we spent the morning leisurely, doing some shopping, visiting the Svalbard history and natural history museum and having lunch in town.
Our bags have been transferred to the ship and we follow in a couple of hours. The Svalbard museum is small but a must see if you come here.
The history it gives of the coal mining and hunting in the area is detailed, complete with many old photos and collections of century old polar gear and clothing.
We are looking forward to a spectacular sunset as we leave the Fjord later this afternoon. I am hoping to get an internet account set up on the boat, so we can share our days. Wish me luck 🙂
