Format: Paperback
Presented as a fictionalised memoir written to (or for) Eduardo, most likely set in 2010 (although I’m guessing), this is an account of three weeks spent in the High Arctic region of the world during the northern hemisphere summer. Our heroine – let’s call her Annette – sets off from Sydney Airport on Saturday, the 17th of July and returns on Tuesday, the 10th of August. What does she do between these dates, and who is Eduardo?

‘If you don’t hear from me in two weeks, send a search party. With champagne.’

From the tedium of long-distance air travel to the challenges of wet landings in the High Arctic, Annette’s account is observant and humorous. Her experience of life aboard ship, largely disconnected from electronic forms of connection through eMail and mobile telephone, gives insight into life lived in the confined quarters of a ship. Annette remains vigilant for signs of motion sickness, and hopeful of seeing wildlife in the Arctic. And there is wildlife: polar bears, whales, reindeers and walrus. While some of Annette’s fellow travellers are excited about the birdlife, she’s not quite so keen on the birds. There’s some beautiful description of space, of days without nights, of the beauty of ice. There’s a balance between the beauty (mostly) of the surroundings and the mundaneness (sometimes) of travel. Time on ship includes lectures about wildlife and surroundings (I especially loved the information about whales), while journeys off-ship (those wretched wet landings) don’t always go according to plan. Still, there are Inuit in Greenland, and endangered species to eat (or not) in Iceland.

‘To be at water level amongst the sea ice — how can I describe it?
