“Ah, if only you knew how splendid it is up there in the North.” – Roald Amundson


Now then!

My name is Katie and I’m a writer, blogger, poet and musician living in the North of England with my daughter Saga.

Since 2008 I’ve been gallivanting around Nordic countries, eating excessive amounts of wienerbrod in Denmark, removing invasive plant species in Iceland, staggering up mountains in Norway and creating new life in Sweden.

I can’t go a day without thinking/writing/talking about the most northerly places on our planet, so establishing The Girl With Cold Hands (formally MostNorthern) was an inevitability.

What you’ll find here is a blog dedicated to celebrating everything north, with a special focus on raising awareness about the Arctic, and the current climate crisis at the top of our world.

I really hope you’ll find yourself at home!
