Atlantic Rising is slowly getting used to life in the very chilly UK. I have spent most of the last week eating cheese, telling people the best and worst things about life on the road and walking my dog (not always simultaneously). And we have all been busy talking to journalists
, selling kit and thinking about what’s next.
I took our precious Beatrice back to Land Rover HQ in Gaydon yesterday and bid her a fond farewell in the snow. So the expedition side of things is definitely over. I am happy to say our roof tent and cooker will be making separate journeys through Africa with their new owners.
In the New Year Atlantic Rising will be shaking the snow of our boots and embarking on phase two. This will be different for each of us and you will hear much more about it all in due course. But at the moment it looks like Tim is going to concentrate on writing a book about our adventures and much more. Will is going to trawl through all our research and transform it into multimedia educational resources. These will all be available for free on the schools pages
of our website. While I am going to try and do some writing for newspapers and magazines both about our trip and the environmental issues we encountered along the way.
We are all going to be doing some lectures, writing an expedition report and our photos and videos might appear in an exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society at some point.
