The fab group of @twintracksexpeditions Svalbard tour at Nelson Island, one of the Seven Islands, the northernmost part of the Svalbard archipelago.
Our ship, the @polarfront_ship above us.
What if? What if an important person had disappeared from history before the important events had taken place? What if the to-be Lord Nelson’s life had been ended on Sjuøyane?
A 14-year-old cadet by the name of Horatio Nelson came along on Pipps’ expedition to the North. An outgoing boy, full of initiative, Nelson had talked his way onto the ship Carcass.
Horatio tried to kill a Polarbear on this island in 1773, but his muscett jammed and the bear almost got him. Destiny wanted it othervise, and he survived to become the hero of Trafalgar defeating the spanish/french fleet in 1805. #nelson#sjuøyane#svalbard#fujifilmnordic#xh1#xf1655f28
Former Norwegian weathership
bought by the French company Latitude Blanche a year ago, and then refurbished into the unrecognizable on the inside: the cabins, restaurant, salons etc is just amazing. 55 meter ship prepared for 14 guests, thats pure luxury arctic exploration.
This is a frame from Hinlopen strait on Svalbard, during @twintracksexpeditions first journey with the @polarfront_ship .
A journey that certainly became positive epic! #fujifilm#xh1#fujifilmnordic
