Hi everyone

I’m in sunny Cape Town, with a day to spare due to a delayed flight departure for Antarctica. I met the team yesterday and had dinner with them at a fabulous Chinese restaurant, my cuisine for the next 10 days as I’ve hired a Chinese chef to look after our tummies down south.

Our bags are packed, weighed and stored for the flight late on Wednesday or early Thursday. My sled for my expedition is also ready to go, weighed in at 75kg.

Pic is of the team at The Antarctic Company office in Cape Town. I’ve been working with Beijing travel company Tripolers for six years and third from right is Xiao, their interpreter and mountain guide (guided Denali, Aconcagua, Elbrus, Kili…). Second from right is Cape Town resident Andy, our chef. TAC manager, Sergei Sakharov, will also join us. Thanks to outgoing manager Anne Froelich for both developing this program over the last 6 years and for ensuring all of the surrounding logistics fall into place. We’ll miss you!
