My beautiful country Greenland - Kalaallit NunaatsteemCreated with Sketch.

in life •  11 months ago

Today I want to talk about where I came from and who my family is. First of all, I want to thank everyone who welcomed me in my introduction, that is so sweet of you. This is my first real post and I want to write about Greenland hoping you are interested. I am from west/south Greenland in a city named Nuuk – the capital of Greenland with 17.000 population.

The first question will be “Where is Greenland?”

Those who have been to Greenland says that we have a beautiful nature and I agree. Most of the year the weather is cold but we do have summer days from June to August.

This picture is taken in June and you can see there is a cruise ship. Greenland is a destination for people who want to see the nature and wild life animals. In the north of Greenland, you can ride dogsled, which is illegal in the south/west, because the dogs are very dangerous. The dogs are trained to hunt and are working animals.

And this heart melting photo is taken in February where we have the coldest weather in Nuuk. Maybe you can see why I love my country so much. Sometimes you can see humpback whale from where I took this picture and they are so beautiful!

Our weather is not always that beautiful as you can see in the next picture.

This is my danish boyfriend who is not used to this weather. If you are considering to take a vacation in Greenland in the period from October to March, please TAKE SOME WARM CLOTHES with you. I will mention that the trip to Greenland is very expensive because there just one big airport in Greenland.

My family:

This is a picture of my family. From left my mom, little (big) brother, my father, little nephew, my nephews mother and grandmother. Those clothes are our national costumes of Greenland, we wear them on special occasions.

Thank you very much for reading my post and I will keep you updated with more pictures soon.

Wow, this looks so awesome 😍 Especially the heart melting picture in the middle, which you could definitely use as a screensaver or wallpaper 😊 But your boyfriend really doesn't seem to be used to the weather in greenland 😃

·

Thank you :D
I have always loved to take some pictures. This is the first time my boyfriend is in Greenland :D

·
·

You are welcome 😉 But for being his first time in Greenland it looks like he's handling it pretty good actually 😊 Anyways as soon as he sees such heartwarming views like on the picture he can't be freezing anymore, especially not while being at your side 😉

·
·
·

Hehe ;) He was really enjoying the beautiful days and survived the bad weather :D

I'm quite sensitive to cold, but heck, one day I have to visit Greenland. How much worse than Sweden can it be anyway? Thanks for sharing @inuk!

·

As a "part" of Denmark, it is kinda embarrassing that I have never visited this place !

·

You welcome! :)

We do have more snow and cold weather than Sweden but if you want to vist Greenland on summer days is also very colorful and very warm ;)
I recommend that you take to Ilulissat :D

·
·

Summer it is then :) And Ilulissat looks truly magical!

·
·
·

isn´t? :D
I am glad that you like it ;)

So beautiful! I especially love the national costumes of Greenland. If you had to pick just one place in all of Greenland to recommend to a traveler, where would it be? :)

·

Thank you very much! :)
I will recommend a city named Ilulissat, it is located in north Greenland. You can see some gigantic icebergs, ride dogsled, see the icecap and lot more ;)

·
·

Awesome! If I am ever fortunate enough to visit Greenland I will make sure to stop there. Cheers :)

Indeed a beautiful place. But it seems too cold. Good clicks as well. Cheers!!

·

Hehe :D Yes then you should take to Greenland on a warm summer day. ;) Cheers!

·
·

I come from a place where there is only two types of weather forecast too hot and not too hot so if i go there I might die. :)

·
·
·

Sounds very hot! :D So you just have to enjoy my pictures then :D

·
·
·
·

After watching this post only one thing is coming in my mind that is "Winter is coming".
Snaps are really awesome.Your family look beautiful with the national costumes.
God bless you and your family..:)

·

Winter can wait a little bit longer, we have to enjoy the summer first :D
Thank you :)

Thanks, beautiful post!

·

thank you :)

Beautiful country and beautiful family ☺️

·

thank you pearica :)

Thank you for the post. I have not thought about Greenland before. Your post encourages me to explore thru the internet.

·

Thanks @lickachops ;)
Greenland is also under the Danish kingdom and there are few who know where Greenland is ;) :)

Nice to see some pics from Greenland and of your family as well.
Er billedet af Mikael ved ombudsmandens kontor? :)

·

Thank you Dan ;)
Ja, det er lige ved ombudsmandenskontor.

Awesome post, the pictures look beautiful! I really want to travel and see greenland one day. There are hot springs in Greenland correct, always wanted to go to one!

Followed you!

·

Hello @izmini :)
Thank you so much! I am glad to hear that you are interested in Greenland. There are a hot spring in south Greenland yes but I never been there :) I am sure it is wonderful!

Followed you too :)

In the photo I see that you look like your mother and your brother to your father and you have to make more photos of your very beautiful land. Although to my taste I think very cold weather.

oh.. this is my dream destination :)

·

Good ;) I really want to encourage people to travel in Greenland.

Welcome here @inuk ! Amazing pictures from your country... your father seems to be a very proud granddad :) ... followed & resteemd

·

Thank you so much @verelst :)
My dad is very proud granddad yes ;) I followed you too.

It is incredible the places people live, whether it be scorching deserts or freezing cold. We find beauty in the places we live and grow up in, that others may not understand. I once listened to an older Australian Aboriginal man from the deep desert, who travelled to the coast for the first time. He hated the sight of the sea and wanted to go back home to the desert.

·

Exactly, it is so different what people like :)
I really like my country but I do also love deserts and very warm places! ;)

·
·

I am fascinated by the beauty and splendour of places such as your home Greenland. To visit it would be amazing.

you are doing great this

·

Thank you :)

·
·

welcome dear

I am from Denmark (velkommen til Steemit) and I have been to Greenland twice. One time in Qasigiannguit and one in Uummannaq. It is the most impressing place I have ever been - it makes Norway look like a model-train range. It is also beautiful and rough in a very special way.

·

Woow! Det er første gang jeg skriver med en der har været i Grønland på steemit :D Those to places er also beautiful! did you take the ferry or airplane?

I followed you.

·
·

(Jeg ved ikke om jeg skal skrive på dansk eller engelsk... nu får du det på engelsk :)

Both time I went with air-plane to Søndre Strømfjord and then airplane again to Ilulissat. Then, another airplane and last a helicopter o Uummannaq, and a chartered boat to Qasigiannguit.

I was with someone who worked there in the summer both times so we had a house both places and was invited to kaffemik, and held one ourselves to my youngest daughter and her cousins combined birthdays. I would also like to go there in the winter sometime to experience the cold, but it all depend on opportunity and money :)

I reshared and follow you too :)

Greenland is very beautiful!

·

Thank you so much

wow wow wow
This is my dream

Nuanneq naapillutit.
You’re the first girl from Greenland I have ever met. Followed you, look forward to your posts. Aluu!

·

Thanks.
I follow you back

Well I got you on stimit as my favorite. And read all your posts. For my part, each part of the land has something beautiful. I saw a time in Italy and then 17 years in South America passing through Brazil Rio de Janero to Paraguay ending in Bolivia Santa Cruz de la Sierra. I have 2 beautiful boys that you can see later in my post.

OMG you are seriously from Greenland! :)))
What a sunset!
Love it. Following you!

Hehe :D
Yes I am from Greenland. Thank you @velimir :)
