The Igloo Experience

    Newer Older

    My employer sent the project team where I am currently working in, to a teambuilding event. We went into the mountains of the "Allgäu", around 200 km south of Stuttgart. Our job was it to build an igloo -instructed by a scout- and sleep the night in it. The temperature outside was -12 °C (9 F), so it was a good idea to get the igloo done until the night falls. The igloo on the photo was "mine" (two persons per igloo) and sleeping in it was really an outstanding (and cold) experience.

      I bet this is a night that will stay in your memory forever. I had similar experiences while living among the Inuit over 5 years here in Canada. If you are interested, check out this set.

      I was just getting into digital photography. The shots are a bit touristy with the point and shoot mentality that goes with that but they are my record of a day spent at an igloo with my sons :-)

      Not so sure about team building, sounds a little more like survival skills. Wonder what he/she has planned?!! Great job!!!
