“If you’re going to have a cabin fever, have a big cabin, you know.” – Joe Cocker

The Karate Kid on his way to the cabin
Looks small underneath the mountain
Glorious view
Just a little hike
Please excuse the clutter behind the outhouse, it was the maid’s day off…
I miss this place!
Not fancy, but comfortable
Not my fav color on the furniture, but they worked just fine
What is better than being IN the cabin? Playing outside of it!

Yes, we are still on Svalbard, and still in September 2006. We sold the cabin before we moved to the mainland, and I miss both Longyearbyen and the cabin immensly. I am not going to pretend that this is a huge, fancy cabin, but it was perfect for us. Also not a huge quest to get there, just perfect for a five-year-old to hike to.


I would like to thank Michelle Mac (Southern by design) for thinking of me as a prospective participant in the «3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge».

    1. Why did I think you were from Minnesooota (said with a heavy Norwegian accent)?

      I had to google Grand Junction Colorado and look at pictures 🙂 Beautiful place! I see the geology in the mountains are exposed just as they are in Svalbard 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! You have no idea how much I miss that cabin, even though I have a bigger and better cabin on the mainland now. I guess I have been bitten by the “Polar Bug” as we say in Norway. And once bitten, it’ll never wear off.

      Looking forward to your take on the quotes challenge 🙂

      1. Lovely to have somewhere like that to escape from everyday life. I’ll probably do the challenge next week, I have my three themes but need to find some good quotes!

      1. Yes, you’re quite right. Coming from a tropical country, I’d probably be gone after taking pictures or one night (shame on me). The beauty is in that unspoiled nature and you’d just want it to stay as it is. 🙂
