FIFTEEN months, 21 countries and 28,000 miles later Atlantic Rising has returned to the UK. Many thanks to the captain and crew of MV Taiko who carried us safely across the Atlantic and entertained us along the way with strange Norwegian films, lengthy games of darts and Bloody Mary cocktails. We jumped ship in Zeebrugge, Belgium on Friday to take a Eurostar back to London but hadn’t bargained for the amount of snow in Europe.
After various delays and unscheduled stops we made it back to London to be welcomed by two of Atlantic Rising’s most dedicated fans and a bottle of champagne. Then we all headed home to surprise our parents.
It is great to be back and we are loving slowly catching up with friends and family. Thank you to everyone who has been reading this blog. Sorry it has been so sporadic. There will be plenty Atlantic Rising to come – more articles, classroom resources, radio interviews, some talks and possibly even a book. So watch this space.
