Breaking the ice


My friend Kjetil Berge is departing on an expedition to the Arctic on Saturday. Travelling overland by ice cream van, he will go via Berlin and St Petersburg to Murmansk, Russia, and then to Kirkenes, Norway. Ice creams will be offered in exchange for talk about the weather, songs and stories.

Londoners can wave him farewell (and get an ice cream for a song) at Gillett Square this Saturday, between 4 and 6 pm. Read more about the journey here, and see Kjetil’s other doings here.

I like the idea.Even if I would rather receive a hot toddy in this season than an ice cream!

The stretch between St Petersburg and Murmansk looks particularly daunting, but Kjetil has spent winters in the Arctic before, so hopefully he knows what he's doing!
