My new life as a husky handler

As career changes go, it is a pretty radical one.

In the summer of 2010 Nigel Vickers Harris quit his job working with young people in Conwy, Wales, and moved to the Arctic Circle with his wife.

He now works as a husky dog handler and adventure guide in northern Norway.

Within months of moving there he had to endure the Arctic's 24-hour pitch black winter, but says it is the best thing he has ever done.
