Dear All… Thank you for the wonderful, wonderful christmas emails that have
been coming in..and sorry for not replying individually: I am busy stuffing
stuff into bags that are stuffed. Rhian style. It’s mayhem. We arrive this afternoon,
christmas eve. Relief begins tomorrow. But what I really, really need you to
know, more than anything, is that I have just seen Antarctica for the first
time, up close and personal, I could almost touch her. And she is beautiful.
So very beautiful. My breath was taken away. I am in love with this landscape.
I am in Antarctica. Happy christmas to you all, and thankyou from the depths
of my heart for always encouraging me to follow this dream. xx
(On an aside, upon moving to Halley this afternoon, I have to set up a new
email account. The address will be the same for you but the reality for me is
that I lose your addresses in the system. So please drop me a quick line, either
by leaving a comment here, or by emailing
