and this place has both in abundance!
i love that you can hear each and every footstep echo softly down into the perma frost, i love that it is always the ‘magic hour’ for photography, i love that you can never run out of ice for your margarita, i love the ritual of layering and unlayering each time you step through a doorway, i love being woken and dragged outside to see the aurora borealis, i love skating by moonlight, i love the peace and quiet of february, i love that i got to walk on the ocean, i love the whacky one sided trees, i love the art and sculpture, i love that i have experienced this magical place.
Our plane broke down and we spent a week in Churchill. Because it was out of season our crew were the only ones in the hotel. The owner was amazing. Made us group suppers, opened the bar and told us to tell him what we had in the morning and said to help ourselves to the trucks outside. Talking about all-inclusive resorts…
Didn’t see any polar beers, which I guess is a good thing. As told to me: there are 2 ways to get away from a polar beer.
1 – run faster than your friend.
2 – if your friend is faster – trip him.
The polar bear is the main attraction and tourism for Churchill, there has been visitors there from people all over the world. It’s quite amazing how they load people into a buggy and go see the polar bears, i would be scared to go see them. Although it is very safe, i would rather see a polar bear from afar.over 7 years ago
having worked for a company that did a lot of work in Churchill gave me a great opportunity to ‘spend’ time there, although i have never been! I want to watch the polar bears, wishing that one could get a whole lot closer than the buggies, but doesn’t really matter i suppose! during my birthday time of the year is a good time for travelling there, so maybe someone will send me on the ultimate birthday trip:) Sigh, well, it’s a good dream!over 7 years ago
I spent a great five days in Churchill polar bear watching – it was the farthest north I’ve ever been and a real eye-opener. We rode around in converted school buses called “tundra buggies” and drank a mixture of cocoa and coffee called tundraccino to stay warm. My first real outdoorsy vacation!over 7 years ago
