Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget the silence at Svalbard (the very north in Norway) - watching the northern lights dancing above our heads, taking a dip in the Arctic water followed by a warm sauna surrounded by wildlife in their natural habitat. All in total wilderness. "
