Arrived in Igloolik!

Mel, Niall and I safely arrived in Igloolik this afternoon! We were originally scheduled to arrive in Igloolik yesterday around 4:30PM; however, our connecting flight from Iqaluit to Igloolik was canceled due to inclement weather conditions. We spent the night in Iqaluit and enjoyed a windy walk around the city, stopping at Yummy Shawarma for dinner and browsing the Unikkaarvik Visitor Centre and the Nunatta Sunakkataangit Museum to learn more about the history and culture of Nunavummiut. We will post some photos from Igloolik tomorrow!
