Getting ThereDuring my research stay in Trondheim the opportunity presented itself to spend a long weekend on the island of Svalbard, administered by Norway. There are about three daily flights from the Norwegian mainland (Tromso and Oslo) to Longyearbyen, the "capital" of the place. About 300 EUR bought me a return flight from Trondheim via Tromso. Passengers travelling to this lost place were a rather mixed crowd, families, expedition tourists, locals returning home, and myself. All were, however, easily distinguished by the fact that they were wearing heavy and sturdy boots -- it would soon become obvious why.
