I am still watching again and again at thousands of pictures and videos, I share it with my friends and family, I can speak about white picks of mountains, about purity of the air, about sleeping seals on the big ice-floe about icebergs, but I know that no pictures I can show, no stories I can tell will never express the depth of emotions, feelings and mood. You just have to see it.
