National Geographic Orion. Our home for the next 14 days. Here we go! Well, we’ve just arrived,
just off of Bornholm, next stop, Bornholm Island. There’s a lot of wind and
this keeps it all contained. Bornholme! One of the most challenging

snow, which may prove a little challenging
since we’re shooting at an open air museum. We are now at the open
