Every expedition is divided into three stages;
- Pre -Expedition, Expedition and Post-Expedition
The Pre Expedition is based on getting the idea, training, raising finance and doing the research
The Expedition is physical nightmare with dragging sleds, climbing mountains or kayak over oceans. But beautiful!
The Post production is something most explorers forget. The media, lectures and do go through problems, solutions and mistakes that was done.
Now I’m in the Post Expedition stage, which means that the expedition is not over – just a different stage of it.
Last week I was invited by the Prime Minister of Albania to talk discuss the possibilities for tourism in Albania and this week I have an interview in London and New York. The week after I am invited by the president of Georgia to launch Nat Geo in Tbilisi. That is one thing I am really looking forward to.
After that Im leaving for Kilimanjaro with a Swedish group.
Besides that I am editing film, images, the book and preparing for the lecture tour.
This week TIME Magazine published a cover story with me that will be sent out to all the schools in USA. Very big honor!
