The Arctic - Spitsbergen

Europe-Spitsbergen-Svalbard-Longyearbyen  Here in Svalbard on my Arctic trip , last stop. On the way yes I did see Polar bears from the ship . Bright all the time up here , Sunshine at 3am in the morning. 

Posted in the main Post office in Longyearbyen . Norwegian stamps showing the Arctic. 

Europe-Spitsbergen-Svalbard-Longyearbyen  This is the Grigoriy Mikheev the ship I was on from Oceanwide Expeditions. The same company I had gone with in the Antarctic. A Russian ship with Russian Crew. These ships were released for use after the cold war, but many have now gone back into use for the Russian Government. 

Another stamp from the Arctic stamp set. Wish they had  a Longyearbyen postmark.
