Nova Zembla

One of the cool things I saw at the Rijksmuseum is a clock that belonged to a Dutch ship that got trapped in the ice off Nova Zembla. You can read a bit about it on this Rijksmuseum timeline which I think is pretty cool. I would love to read this journal they kept.

It’s amazing to think that “fighting polar bears” was a thing. And what are those two polar bears in the back getting into?

Anyway, that’s what I’m thinking about right now. Probably has nothing to do with my obsession with The Terror.
