Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

Made it. As expected, Iceland Air couldn’t print boarding passes for the two Qatar legs of the journey, although they could check our luggage all the way through. That’ll be why we couldn’t do the online check-in, either. Not much of a “partnership” really, IMO. We had a bit more time in Stockholm Arlanda to […]

Back on the internet, but not yet home

The day of our departure from Greenland was a long, drawn-out affair that turned out to be the day before the day of our departure. The plane that was due to pick us up had mechanical problems and, instead of heading from Nuuk to Keflavik as planned, had done an emergency landing at a Greenland […]

There were some ups and downs on the flights. On the long, 15-hour first leg to Doha, we found that I […]

Last minute infrastructure upgrade

This blog is now available in IPv6 flavour, for those who prefer it, thanks to the magic of the nbn. Pictures might load a little quicker too. Let’s hope it’s also reliable: still too young to be able to tell from experience.  Not that it matters greatly on this trip, as the expected total lack […]

Is this thing still on?

One two. One two… Warming up the systems for another adventure. Still a little way off yet, blast-off at the end of August. Where to? A couple or five days in Reykjavik by way of re-adjusting to the northern hemisphere and being close to the main game, which is a week and a half off […]
