I am occasionally spellbound by man’s will. His sheer determination. Bewildered and even confused. How did man accomplish this? Moments of wonderment come to mind when I think of Petra in Jordan, the Taj Mahal in India, the temples of Bagan in Burma, or the Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan. I had a similar sense of [...]

The Sirius Sledge Patrol  is part of the Danish military, created in 1950. I stood in the North East Greenland National Park.

What was the [...]
