Geek Tourism




I've already shared loads of photos and stories from last summer's trip to Greenland, but somehow I think I forgot to mention our most obscure and geeky tourist landmark.

In the hills above Narsaq, is the mine from which Danish physicist Niels Bohr got uranium for his experiments.

Unfortunately it's all closed up so there was no chance to explore inside the tunnels - but it was still a nice walk up the mountain, and there were loads of interesting rocks to collect. It was only as we came to the airport security sensors on the way home that we suddenly wondered whether we'd accidentally pocketed anything radioactive...

I don't think that's geeky, I think that's really exciting! A real scientific landmmark.=)

Looking forward to hearing how your presentations went!

Can I recommend The Geek Atlas, by John Graham Cummings? A fine source of intriguing places to visit....

I love the photos! I misread the title at first as "Greek" not "Geek"--Geek tourism sounds much more interesting!

It does look interesting but I would leave it alone?? Yes enjoy the walk!

One of those places that is part of the formation of the present day. Theses out of the way places are endlessly fascinating.
