Michael Palin's Pole to Pole

http://www.shackletoncentenary.org/the-team/michael-palins-pole-to-pole.php

Instead of working on my dissertation or reading up for an upcoming exam (I have a worryingly low attention span - as I'm sure my final marks will show), I've just finished watching the last episode of Michael Palin's Pole to Pole.


In the episode he manages to get to the South Pole, and if you haven't seen it already I really recommend it as it shows you what its like out there/ down there in glorious technicolour. He is able to walk around the world (around the South Pole itself) in 8 seconds which is something that I can't wait to try out when I get down there.

The whole thing becomes a bit more real when you see other people doing it, rather than just daydreaming about how cold it is going to be in the not-too-distant future.
