What's new from Bart?
Bart reached Sisimuit in Greenland 2 hours ago and decided due to the strong northerly winds to continue on a ferry to Ilulissat, the town close to the amazing glacier, where in the documentary "Chasing Ice", filmmaker James Balog caught the largest calving event ever recorded.
James Balog said " The only way that you can really try to put it into scale with human reference is if you imagine Manhattan, and all of a sudden, all those buildings just start to rumble, and quake, and peel off, fall over and roll around. This whole massive city just breaking apart in front of your eyes,". The entire ordeal took 75min.
Upon arrival in Ilulissat, Bart will decide his destination he will paddle to.
