Just a quick note to say that tomorrow we fly north to Svalbard to begin our adventure. If you're interested in following along, you will find updates on our blog, http://svalbard.worldwildadventure.com/blog/ and most likely more regular updates on Facebook. We are carrying with us a Delormie Inreach tracker, which is visible on the header bar on my Tara's Journeys facebook page, so you can follow our progress live.
I'm amped to get going, it's been a long time coming and it's going to feel so so good to finally paddle away into the unknown. We have been so lucky wih all the help and support we have recieved to get to this point, there is no way we could even give this circumnavigation a shot without it. Unlike this time last year, a large amount of ice is already breaking up, and it's looking promising that a full circumnavigation will be possible this summer. On Saturday we will see and paddle our kayaks for the first time and I can't wait!
