Northern Expedition

Therefore, his life was nothing ordinary, banal and conventional. He started as a research scientist, and became a politician, humanist and philanthropist. His efforts in the 20-ies assist Armenian refugees and starving Volga region are no less great a feat as his expedition into the heart of Greenland and the North Pole. Face to face with Saturn, he not only gained knowledge about Meteorology – currents, winds and temperatures, not only tempered the body and will tenfold, but became a greater appreciation for human compassion, became a staunch humanist. Their fear of tests, he converted to force overcome and done the unthinkable – right on the shroud of snow, among the icy silence he grew bright colors of love, becoming a goodwill ambassador in the country of ice and night. Nansen became a legendary hero of Norway, it is considered a great and unique personality. He has many followers and admirers primarily in Norway itself.

But in fact, the influence of his life and exploits are much wider. He has entered not only in Norwegian, but also in world consciousness as an example truly flawless hero. He keeps coming back to us through the centuries, reminding myself of allusions, the similarity of individuals striving to icy peaks. He left a deep imprint in the ocean as a great symbol of the unconscious courage and boldness. Letter from visitors to my site – vivid testimony: "I would like to tell you an interesting, in my opinion, a story – he wrote. – I have a friend – an amazing man, a successful businessman, pohodnik, climber, which constantly pulls to the north of the study. Its 50 anniversary, he met climbing one of the peaks in the Yukon, is now considering to go to Greenland. While people are going south in the winter, he tries to get as much as possible north.

He recently told me that he wants to go to Oslo, and visit the Museum of Fridtjof Nansen. Said that pulls him back. I'm talking about Nansen knew nothing, and he was telling me about him with great enthusiasm. It was evident that He is a big fan of his. Advised to read his notes from the Northern Expedition. When I flew from Toronto to Halifax (I live in Halifax, and this is my friend – in Toronto), the airport had nothing to do download one of the books Fridtjof Nansen, opened it, almost fell into a swoon!
