Once I finished the Greenland crossing and managed to access my emails once again, I was greeted by the excellent news that Antarctic Logistics & Expeditions (ALE) had approved my plans for a solo journey from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole! Extremely happy and excited to get the news. I expect to fly to Antarctica on 10 November 2022, and hope to take between 45-50 days for the journey. Lots of work to do beforehand of course – plenty of training and lots of organising with the logistics… going to be a busy few months!!!

Just discovered your blog and I feel ecstatic just by reading your upcoming journey! I am tropical girl living in Middle East so I have zero experience of anything ‘Polar’. New follower here and all the best to you!
Thank you so much! Glad that you have enjoyed reading about it all (imagine that a little different than the Middle East! How long you been there?!) – I haven’t been very good at blogging about all the preparations, but hope to get back into it and update more sooner rather than later!
I think you’re doing a great job blogging about the preparations! Can’t wait to hear more though 🙂 It’s so interesting how different your landscape (and preparations) from what we are familiar here. I’ve been in the Middle East (UAE) for about 8 years now though I’m still not used to the hot weather haha! So I’m jealous of the cold environment you are in!
