I must admit to having a “fan girl” moment during this interview. But can you blame me? My companion, Norwegian captain Andreas B. Heide is showing me his “Barba” boat peacefully floating in the harbour right next to his apartment window, as if it were a car parked in the driveway. It’s the same boat that has just returned from a four-month “Artic Sense” expedition. The captain and marine biologist has been diving with orcas, observing polar bears and walruses in their natural habitat, and dreaming of diving with blue whales one day… I’d rather be preparing myself for the next “Barba” expedition than watching the captain resting on his cosy couch in Stavanger through my laptop monitor, yet I believe there is no wrong way to experience his stories about the beauty of the North, the fragility of Arctic nature, and his adventures onboard and offshore. It’s a story of human curiosity, the desire to investigate the unknown and see what’s beyond the visible and understandable.
