Kuto had never felt so alive. He was in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by glaciers and snow-capped mountains. It was cold, but he didn’t care. He felt exhilarated, free.
He had been planning his escape for months, ever since he realized that his life was nothing more than a series of boring routines. Wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, watch TV, go to bed. Repeat ad nauseam.
He knew there had to be more to life than that and he was determined to find it. So when he saw an advertisement for a research expedition in Svalbard – a remote archipelago in the Arctic Ocean – he jumped at the chance.
Now here he was, hiking through breathtaking scenery and feeling truly alive for the first time in his life. Every day brought new challenges and adventures, and Kuto loved every minute of it.
