Polar Explorer - Attempting to become the first female to walk Solo to the Geographical North Pole!
Christina Franco: “The first thing I get asked is “why” I want to go to the North Pole. The second is why I want to go on my own. There is never a good reason when explaining a passion. The North Pole has been just that, a passion. Ever since hearing the first stories of men who slipped into frozen sleeping bags at night exhausted after a long day of hauling, I wanted to go there, I wanted the privilege if travelling in one of the greatest wildernesses imaginable; challenging my body and mind to do so against the odds. I face a far greater comfort then they ever did and a certainty at least, that my journey will not end with a plunge into the molten core of the Earth.”
