#RossIceShelf #Antarctica

I am not the best at keeping up to date with my trip blog. Over a week ago now we reached the Bay of Wales. It is the most southern point on the World’s oceans. It is an embayment into the Ross Ice Shelf, and is the point that Amundsen set off for his successful conquest of the South Pole. The Ross Ice Shelf itself is the size of France. It is 350 miles long and goes inland for another 200 miles. The day was very cold with a temperature of minus 12.
