Call of the White : Taking the World to the South Pole
Could YOU ski to the South Pole?That was the challenge that British adventurer Felicity Aston put to women from around the Commonwealth, as she set out to create the most international all-female expedition ever to the Pole. The team would not be experienced explorers but 'ordinary' women who wanted to inspire others to follow their dreams. She received more than 800 applications. 'What is skiing?' asked someone in Ghana. At the close of 2009, Felicity led a team from places as diverse as Jamaica, India, Singapore and Cyprus - some of whom had never even seen snow or spent the night in a tent before joining the expedition - on one of the toughest journeys on the planet.Eighty-mile-an-hour winds ripped through base camp; frostbite and injuries were an everyday occurrence; deadly crevasses cracked beneath their feet. But they also shared beliefs, ideas, philosophies - and laughter.
