NOV 03: Laura Galloway – Dálvi: Six Years in the Arctic Tundra
What did Laura Galloway do when her DNA test said she was related to the Sami?
She did what all good travelers do, and set out to learn more…which led to an affair with a reindeer herder, and to leaving the hustle of NY for the silent tundra of the Arctic. Laura Galloway‘s memoir Dálvi is a story of courage and hope, and a love letter to the people and frozen landscape of Norway.
We discuss how adversity that brings us to our knees, can strengthen our character and build us back stronger and wiser. What life was like living with a reindeer herder. The meaning of home. And, how the silence of nature made Laura realize that love had always been there, just when she needed it.
