Our North Pole team - Lynda, Ilse, Aparna, Katie, Tim, Rob and Baz, and guides Heath, Mardi and I - are finally assembled in Longyearbyen ready for our ski adventure to the North Pole.
Unlike the weather on our recent Svalbard trip, it has been blue and still here in Longyearbyen so after a couple of days prep we went out on skis to ensure our ski gear is tweaked and hassle-free.
In the evening we enjoyed a team dinner at a local restaurant relishing some fine food, wine and shots before flying into the deep cold of the Arctic Ocean. Looks like we fly on April 5, a day later than expected.
Stay tuned for the next adventure!
