Expedition / Pangaea

Pangaea

Why the name ‘Pangaea’? Pangaea is defined as a “hypothetical super-continent that included all the landmasses of the earth before the Triassic Period”.

Expedition / North Pole Winter Night

North Pole Winter Night

My expedition in January 2006 gave new meaning to the term ‘walking on thin ice’. It was an exciting and daunting new challenge. But one I could not do alone by law. Thankfully, renowned Norwegian arctic explorer, Borge Ousland took little convincing and joined me in a heartbeat. Together, we’d walk to the North Pole […]
