Going to Greenland would be my choice. I know it may sound a ridiculous choice for a vacation. I'm completely fascinated biy the concept of 'frozen' and in a perpetual way.
The kind of climate I'm used to, is one of mildness and of rarely experiencing the exteme. The thought of shivering and having to don thick winter clothing to trek on the ice field fills me with a wonder for our planet in its diversity.
Because I write children's stories that touch on global warming and ice melt issues in the Arctic, I would love to experience at first hand some of this ice melt - not too close at hand of course, I'm not a thrill junkie.
The thought of how the animals are suffering - like the polar bear - due to the lack of ice floes, fills me with a compassion for their plight.
Outside of changing global concerns, I would love to experience the wonders and beauty of this ice world - so different to my usual world. Just to experience the Northern Lights, the everlasting daylight of the summer, the large pods of whales and dolphins, the Greenlanders and their stories of climatic change, the resident scientists and their projects are among my expectations.
There's a danger of course, if I go there, I may not want to go home, I would be so taken up with the extensive significance of this last great wilderness on our earth.
All I need is a large sum of money and I'm on my way. I nearly went there a few years ago to do research for a children's book, but it was so expensive and I would have to pay for someone else that I decided not to go. What regret I have now.
