UPDATES FROM LUXEMBOURG | 5 July 2019
Yes, you read that right – I’m back and with all 20 of my fingers and toes. You may have noticed we’ve been a little quiet here in this space, but after getting back to Luxembourg on 14th June and after long weeks on the ice, it was great being able to fully enjoy being back with my family again.
Thank you so much to Carl Alvey (Expeditions365) for guiding us across the ice cap and to Chris Weyers, my team mate. We may have encountered some tricky weather – whiteouts, low winds and all – but it was great sharing this experience with them.
Between us all we have gathered so much footage from the trip and we cannot wait to share the story of our Greenland traverse with you all.
Watch this space.
