Magnetic North Pole Camp – Day 11
Reflecting back upon my first impressions of this peaceful, charming but still action-packed town of Château d’Oex, I realize how fast time flew by. As soon as I look at the surrounding landscapes, up to the snow-capped mountains and white-dusted forests, the feeling of excitement occcurs, the exact same way it did at the first sight I caught upon my arrival. Still that much amazed by such dramatic land formations, still involving an adrenaline kick and strangely enough, still creating a strong expectancy of adventure.
The 8th selection camp has come to an end, and all the Young Explorers are waving goodbye to the Mike Horn Team that has educated us, taken care of us, and pushed us to our limits; to all the fellow YEPs that truly have become close friends; and to ten amazing days in the Swiss Alps that none of us will ever, ever forget. It was especially difficult for the Team, but at the end, the selection of the Expedition team has been made. Selected or not, we are all strongly inspired by the project spirit and highly motivated to return to our communities to spread the Pangaea message, and to act for the good.
Once again, we’d like to thank Mike Horn for giving all of us this amazing opportunity and experience of a lifetime, and Martin and the entire Mike Horn Team for delivering such an adrenaline-fuelled, well-organized and safe time in the Château d’Oex Mike Horn Expedition Center.
Good job, guys!
