I live in the Northern latitudes (Scotland), and I have always had a fascination for going North! The notion of the North has always evoked something deep and kindred in me. Searching for a reason for my affection for high latitudes and the allure that wild, cold and empty places holds for me, gave me the idea for this quiz.
