I was welcomed in a family of 4 children in the arctic town of Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada. Between snowmobiles rides on the ice cap of the Frobisher Bay and igloo building, I got to know an incredible family and their wonderful children. The results of my PhD found while over there will forever be a remainder of this trip.
I came back twice in the native community I had already visited in 2019 and 2017, where I live in the heart of the amazonian jungle with native people, not far from the village of Satipo. Despite some difficulties with the internet access, it is an enjoyable frame to study, and people are wonderful, even though sometimes challenging to interact with.
Similarly to what I experienced in Canada, I could enjoy the company of a really nice English family, now living in the countryside not far from the city of Tomar. The frequent trips to the nearby lake Albufeira do Castelo do Bode made it a great travel, and if the presence of their two children was reminiscent of Canada, the climate and outdoors were not.
A two days backpack trip near the tiny Arctic village of Pond Inlet, 700 km north of the Arctic circle. I walked a loop of some 50 kilometers, with no more company than the endless sunlight. The picture on the right was taken at 1am, with the Bylot island in the distance.
