I grew up in the northern most city in the world, Longyearbyen, on the island of Svalbard - only 650 miles (1050 km) from the North Pole.
On Svalbard, there are no trees due to the permafrost in the ground, but it's really the most beautiful place on earth.
 
To protect the delicate fauna, it's illegal to pick flowers here. But there are so many other beautiful treasures to be found still -
The people are outnumbered by both polar bears and snowmobiles. And til this day I'm still longing back. 
 
Even though we often visit, the dream is to one day return for good with my own little family. Til then, I'll have to take comfort in collecting tiny treasures - reminding me of my sweet icy paradise.

my own lot of treasures, collected by my boys. A collection like this would unforunatily never be for sale, as bones are not allowed to ever leave the island.

What did we as children climb when there were no trees here? Well here's the answer! (pictured above) 

This is an old cable car for transporting coal from the mines, and they're to be found all over the city. 

They're quite beautiful aren't they?
 
(And for clarification, I never dared to climb any higher than the first "floor" by the ground)
