Far far away.

The Tasermiut Fjord area, is a Fjord system in the South West of Greenland. Greenland is that massive white blob near the top end of the map, one of those places you can’t quite imagine ever visiting – it doesn’t seem to have any exciting capital cities or widely shared insta-worthy panoramas.
