Our blog title is a tongue-in-cheek bastardization of the pronunciation of Nunavut. So many people outside of the territory call it “nunna-Vit” so we thought it would be a hoot to play off that. For the record, the correct pronunciation is “noon-Ah-voot”.
We’ve discovered a very healthy blogging community in the North, and will soon hopefully become a part of it. Originally this blog was intended to keep our friends and family up to date on our exciting adventures. However after a couple of years up here it’s come to be a gateway guide for people moving up here. To our surprise so many people have contacted us after reading through our blog asking questions about life in the great white north.
We’re proud to say that we’ve gone from red-nosed rookies to ambassadors of the north in our short time here. The overwhelming community spirit in Iqaluit is infectious so we hope to convey that through our words, pictures and experiences for all to share.
