Wow! Checkout the images of the #Arctic  in this read from +Maptia  #lastpole  
Traveling on the world’s biggest, baddest, most powerful icebreaker, I joined an extraordinary journey to the North Pole by surface vessel. Today, as our Earth warms, the almost unbearable beauty of the Arctic, home to the narwhal and magnificent polar bear, is at grave risk of being lost forever.

Great idea. I would love to take this to the Arctic, although carrying the extra weight might test my endurance/patience. I'm filling that form in!

Any plans to take the project to Arctic Canada? Will be up there in February if you need help setting it up +Mike Cassidy , World's first 4G feed from the Arctic Pole of Inaccessibility of any interest to you?

Great project but wouldn't the money be better spent on fighting the causes of the risk to the landscapes instead of capitulating to the idea that they are doomed?
This video is a teaser-trailer of sorts for a project put together by a team of filmmakers who want to capture some of the world's most endangered landscapes in order to preserve them for future generations. They took their cameras to a number of beautiful locations, many of which are threatened ...

Story
Tagline
Andy Madeley: adventurer for War Child, writer, public speaker. Show off.
Introduction
Life is too short not to do what you love. Most people know it, they feel it in the core of their being, yet so few act upon it. I like to think am one of those few.

After long deliberation (and some wine) I have boiled my list of loves down to three specific things:

  • Raising money for War Child
  • Partaking in exciting adventures and challenges
  • Writing
My latest adventure is walking to the Arctic Pole from February 2015. The Arctic Pole is the furthest point from land in the centre of the Arctic Ocean and the expedition is a world-first, this is the last significant place in the polar regions yet to be reached on foot. Look out for more information coming soon!

I've written an account of my cycle from London to Sydney for the blog: The Cycle Diaries and as a columnist for The Telegraph Travel website (See the links to articles below).

In-between concocting new adventures and writing The Cycle Diaries book I perform talks about my adventures and raise money for War Child.

I want to empower those who have not yet taken that leap of faith in themselves, to do so. If I can help I usually will, so let's get in contact!

Yours in wonderment,

Andy Madeley

Best coffee shop I've been to in London. Great coffee and cakes. Love the sweet potato and goats cheese tart. The greatest thing about the place, though, is the friendly staff. Besides being very nice and chatty they are not hipsters and unlikely to judge you for mistaking a flat white for a latte.
