Annelies De Hauwere in Svalbard thanks to BE-POLES

Annelies De Hauwere, who won a BE-POLES 'travel grant' for the training programme at the University centre of Svalbard, started a website to describe her adventures in Longyearbyen. The website is in Dutch and it is worth a look.

Read about how it feels to live in a northern town, how to survive avalanches and low temperature conditions or how to avoid being attacked by a polar bear. You can also have a look at her her picture album or chatbox.
