With all team members in Longyearbyen it was time to start banging the drum about our imminent departure! We'd like as many people as possible to share in our adventure and follow our progress so we need to shout about our expedition a little bit.

Last night we had a lightning quick photoshoot with Esther Horvath, renowned conservation photographer who specialises in the Arctic Ocean. She had literally just stepped off a flight from Greenland where she had spent three months at Station Nord, a Danish military station in the very North of Greenland that supports scientific work.

Today we have spent time with the BBC recording in Arabic as well as English. We'll be doing more tomorrow and perhaps even a live radio broadcast....we've been well trained after making 15 episodes of Polar Exposure!
