Always a star. I note Sarah Outen's comment - prepare for the re-entry syndrome. Did you see the CNN news items with Felicity next to Mr Obama? A shock in store I believe.
Hay-on-Wye, Eardisley and Hereford will have lucky audiences 1-3/3/12. Email for details.

Have a safe flight into what we call civilization. I have a feeling you'll be feted wherever you go, and it's so very well deserved, but I'm sure it'll be a shock to your system. Please keep us up to date a little bit, so we don't have Felicity withdrawal. Good luck!

Have a wonderful and safe flight back to the UK. I know it must be a weird feeling to be happy to be finished along with the desire to want to get back out there and continue the adventure. It is very bittersweet, because you have kind of been in your own world, making all your decisions and being independent, sort of, with exception of reporting back to your sponsors which is required. All journeys do have to end eventually, but you would always have it in your memory along with pictures, etc. I have no doubt that one day you will get back out to Antartica again on yet another adventure. In the meantime, bask in your success and enjoy all the attention which is well deserved. Thanks for sharing this amazing story. Bonnie Krim

Funny thing, now you face another storm front when you are least in the mood to deal with it. This calls for a PLAN B but the same principle applies (e.g., keep putting one ski out in front of the other until you get through it). Heroic? Not so much, but there are lessons to be learned in this phase of the remarkable journey, the recovery. TAKE CARE Of YOURSELF...

Antarctica is forever part of you now. You may well return to the physical place, but you WILL forever carry the essence of your time there and of the place. You have been indelibly marked by this time and place.

In the preface to the 50th anniversary of his book Sir Ed wrote "The explorers of the past were great men and we should honour them. But let us not forget that their spirit still lives on." Their spirit certainly lives within you. Many thanks for sharing your adventure.

Hi Felicity , It has been a privilege, to follow your days on the ice and listening in on your thoughts .. what an adventure , truely an adventure of a lifetime ... how many could say that they pushed themselves to this sort of endeavor of endurance and commitment, in their lifetimes. Most of all, loved the frank and disarming talks you left here, for us all to enjoy, and empathize with you while the journey progressed. The always positive attitude that your 'telling' and thoughts have conveyed were wonderful. Congrats on the finish. kia kaha , you ran the race, and finished :-) well done.
