What do you love about the Arctic? I really love the changing northern lights and I love to be out in nature.
What do the Northern lights mean to you? The Northern Lights are my babies. I just love them and many people say that I am like a whisperer, in that case a Northern Lights whisperer.
Did your family tell you stories about the Northern Lights when you were a child? When she was a child it was not allowed to go out of the house alone because of the Northern Lights. She also told me that I have to take with me a white towel on a Northern Lights Safari. When using the it the Northern Lights will become more active and in the good old days the Northern Lights also could take the children away from their parents. In addition, it was not allowed to whisper either when there were Northern Lights visible.
What is the most challenging thing about living in the Arctic? In winter, we don`t have so much day light because of the Polar night season and people are a bit more sleepy than in summer.
What top three things would you recommend a visitor to the Artic to experience? Northern Lights, whale watching, and dog or reindeer sledging
What is your favourite season? My favourite month is March. The sun is back and when the sun is shining it is very warm. You can stay outside for a long time since it is bright. And the Northern Lights are still there.
