going to Greenland

One alternative route for our Greenland adventure starting next week.
On Monday we fly out to Copenhagen and then take a flight to Greenland.
Temperatures here in Israel are in the high 20`s, so we go from barefoot and tee shirts to full dry suites and thick woolen socks and booties. I`m sure it will be a shock to the system.
We will also be leaving a war zone, with rockets trying to kill us on a daily basis and our army defending us. The timing is not the best as everyone knows someone in the defense forces and the level of tension is pretty high at the moment. Considering that we will be out of communication range for the duration, this does put a bit of a damper on the whole trip. Hopefully it will be over by the time we leave, but that`s not for sure.
It just goes to show that however much we plan and prepare, there is always a lack of control that needs to be taken into account.
