The other 4 friends and I lend a car from and started our journey by driving up toward north on Mar.5th,07. The temperature went down immediately after , it got to negative 38 degree Cels. And after that, the road is a combination of ice and water.

We had all kind of car accidents continuously for several days, and we escaped every time.

We finished our first journey after 2 weeks, we returned to on Mar.18,07. Friends from westca.com invited us, and we discussed about our journey.

Through out many years, everybody thought I was Japanese or Korean, nobody ever asked me if I am Chinese, especially this time, even more people thought I am Japanese. They can’t believe that a normal Chinese can have a trip like this too.

On Mar.21st,07, the other 5 Chinese and I asked for a Chinese National Flag, and we started our second journey in 2 weeks. The second day, Mar.22nd,07, we drove through the “Ice Way” and kept on going north for another , we arrived the North Pore Village that was beside the Arctic Ocean in the afternoon.

I took off my coat in a temperature that’s negative 40 degree Cels, I opened the flag, and I took this picture in the village beside the . I only wished to do no more than a little thing for all the Chinese.

There are 22 days in total for our trip, I will get the rest of the photos and stories ready, and send it to the forum.

What a fantastic adventure - I'm really jealous! I love the photos too. Were the people on the tandom part of your group? I've made a few corrections to your story.

4 friends and I leased/borrowed a car from Vancouver and started our journey by driving up towards the north on Mar.5th,07. The temperature went down immediately and after 3000km it was down to negative 38 degree Cels. After that, the road was just a combination of ice and water.

We had all kind of car accidents continuously for several days but we escaped every time.

Hello, my name is Chiara.

Congratulations for your beautiful trip and for your pictures. I find the first one particularly beautiful:

it's amazing, it looks like a picture taken from a fairy tail, surrealistic, original and very powerful! It looks like being on onother planet!

What is the green light?

Thank you for showing to everyone.

Bye,

Chiara

These are the 'northern lights' or 'aurora borealis' to give them their proper name. It's one of my ambitions to see this one day.
