Today the students arrived in Kuujjuaq QC, departing the M.V. Orlova and readying themselves for the flight back to Ottawa. Some said their farewell as a number of the northern students departed to their respective places of origin.
The plane to Ottawa is about to board, and the students are preparing for the lengthy flight home. Upon arrival they will head to Carleton University and await their departures as students are gradually shuttled back to the airport and the group continues with their goodbyes.
The trip was an astounding success, inspiring many young minds, and affecting many lives. The experience, memories, and adventures shared on the expedition will surely not be forgotten by any of the participants, one of the largest group ever to participate.
