The expedition is coming to an end and we have reached Longyearbyen. It was a rough transit from the ice edge, with 4-5 meters waves and 30 m/s wind. We are now packing down our equipment, and are getting ready for our flight back home tomorrow. I have learnt a lot during the expedition, and I hope that I can join another one in the future. - Jon Bjørnø (SAMCoT/IMT)
