I Caught Crabs in Norway

by David Evans Published August 15, 2023 in Escape & The Daily Telegraph – News Corp   Preparing for a King Crab safari in far northern Norway is a serious affair. Arctic suits are a must in this part of the world in winter, but what’s with the full-face helmets? I mean, how big ARE […]

See the Southern Lights from a 787 Dreamliner!

Join me on September 23, 2022 for a really cool thing – I’ll be flying in the comfort of a 787 Dreamliner from Adelaide towards Antarctica…at night!

Flares Up – A Story Bigger Than The Atlantic

I first met aspiring Irish writer Niamh McAnally in the depths of winter in Swedish Lapland in 2015. She was curious, gregarious and lots of fun, and I could tell she was a doer. We then kept in touch whilst she sailed around the world, met a lovely bloke, and got married. I was thrilled […]

My Name is Dave, and I’m an Auroraholic

by David Evans Published November 10, 2019 in Escape – News Corp   WARNING: photographing the aurora borealis is addictive. ‘Is it as bright to look at as it is in photographs?’ This is the question I am most often asked about the aurora borealis. The answer is a frustrating, ‘well, that depends’. Having seen […]

Norway – The Definition of Vitality

by David Evans   The definition of ‘vitality’ is Norway in the summer, where cows eat so much they wear udder bras. I’m not joking. Sun at midnight is the antithesis of deep winter polar night. It emanates a glazed energy that makes grass grow lush and birds disoriented with insomnia. Much is written about […]

The original Ice Hotel in Swedish Lapland is cold comfort

by David Evans Published August 30, 2016 in Escape – News Corp   Check-in at Sweden’s Ice Hotel is like no other. “At 3.30pm there will be a lesson on how to sleep in your room,” said the glacier-blue-eyed blonde behind the desk. We laughed. The girl nodded knowingly, watching as we absorbed the gravity […]
