It’s really happening! Today I boarded the Ocean Atlantic, a Polish-made Russian icebreaker full of mostly Chinese passengers, as well as 12 other international guests. And of course, the staff and crew from around the world.
My service is going to be nonexistent, so most likely this won’t get posted until I get back, along with all of the stories and expedition route. In the meantime, rest assured that my lifelong goal is about to be achieved and I’m so grateful to all of you who have supported me in every way to make this a reality. Can’t wait to see those penguins!
