Svalbard #KeHujungDunia Trip – Video and Directory

This post is the “Table of Contents” for all my upcoming Svalbad #KeHujungDunia stories.

I remember when I was in primary school about 25 years ago, when my friends and I had arguments or had a fight we would end up saying to each other “kau pergi main jauh-jauh dekat hujung dunia”.

Many years later, on 17th February 2015, Alhamdulillah I finally step foot at a “hujung dunia” destination known as Svalbard, located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole.

In the next few weeks I will be sharing my stories of being in Longyearbyen, Svalbard the world’s northernmost town in the world, experiencing life at one of the world’s exotic travel destinations in the world together with my wife and my buddy (who some of you may recall from the #NepalAkuDatang trip).

When we were planning for a trip to Europe back in mid-2014, we explored various options from the usual tourist destinations to  off the beaten path backpacking across Europe. It was by accident that we saw an article about a research at Arctic Circle and as we zoomed in to options like Reykjavik, Tromso and Lapland, we got to know about Svalbard.

The more that we researched about Svalbard, the more we feel that it’s exotic, it’s rare, it’s something that worth our hard-earned money. Co-incidentally airlines were having good promotions at that time and after a quick discussion over Teh Tarik, we eventually booked our 9 flights to travel more than 28,000km #keHujungDunia and back.

and now this is our story:

Part 1: The journey begins. A Malaysian Hospitality Experience to London

Part 2: A quick tour of London, Europe’s most visited city

Part 3: An Evening in Oslo: A 15 hours Stopover

Part 4: Flying to the Top of the World. Destination: Longyearbyen Svalbard

Part 5: An Unforgettable Dog Sledding Adventure in the Arctic Wilderness

Part 6: Hiking and Ice-caving @ Lars Glacier – A Frozen Adventure!

Part 7: Discovering Longyearbyen – the world’s northernmost town.

Part 8: Longyearbyen Airport – the world’s northernmost airport with scheduled services

Part 9: Paris Pitstop.
