Signe Maria Brunk
Signe Maria is 29 years old, and originally comes from Falun in Sweden. As for many others, the plan was to work on Svalbard for a few months, but the months have become years. Three, in fact. Signe Marie is part of the hosts at Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel, where she is also accompanied by her two happy huskies.
– One of my favorite places on Svalbard is Nordenskiöld Lodge, in the heart of Adolfbukta. It is a magical place, with the Nordenskiöld glacier a stone’s throw away, and nothing is as delicious as enjoying your morning coffee on the veranda of the cabin while listening to the glacier’s movements, Signe Maria smiles.
According to the hotel employee, Spitsbergen has a very special attraction, where the glaciers meander between mighty, steep mountains. An infinite, natural playground that Signe Marie often experiences on skis or on foot.
– The nature here allows for curious exploration, at the same time as it requires full focus and respect. The Arctic landscape devours all the stress, anxiety and other things you carry, and let you just be who you are. Here the dreams lives and become my everyday life. And this is what I so want to share with our guests: Nature with all its shifts, the wildlife right outside the door and of course the silence, Signe Maria concludes.
