Taming awesome nature.
Your journey will cover deserts, jungles, tundra, and you’ll be sailing, skiing, driving from pole to pole. Is there any particular aspect or challenge you’re apprehensive about?
Like I always say, if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough. This basically means that no matter the challenge I am willing to undertake, there will always be something worth being apprehensive about. Pole2Pole is a unique expedition because it will take me through a variety of landscapes, seasons, and conditions. During this two-year adventure, I will be sailing across oceans, skiing across both the Arctic and Antarctica, and driving in extreme terrains. I am more apprehensive, however, about the two world-firsts I will be undertaking; the crossing of the Arctic and Antarctica. These steps of the journey need to be extremely well prepared. From equipment to weather to mental conditions, a great amount of details come into play to guarantee secure crossings.
