After over a year, here is a simple video montage of our time on the ice last year. It goes from our arrival in Kulusuk, through the expedition and to our journey back home.
Many thanks for your continued messages and charity donations nearly a year after the expedition was completed! As a final post for the website, which will stay online, here is a ‘debrief’ of sorts with images and some interesting facts from the expedition.
Remember, a sample of the first hand account of the expedition is currently on alexhibbert.com and the book is due to be published.

Both George and I are back home in the UK now and slowly readjusting to the real world! The emphasis has been on food (although our stomachs have taken time to get used to normal food), sleep and working with our Tiso team on publicity. In short, we’re delighted to be back – the simple things are the best!
I’ve imported all the dispatches into this site so they can be read directly and will be producing a debrief page soon.
We received so much support via satellite from you all – we can’t tell you how much we appreciated this through the hardest days of the journey. Sincere thanks to you all.
