Our first post

Welcome to our blog! It’s here where we’ll be posting updates on pretty much every aspect of our journey, we want to make this journey as transparent as possible for everyone who’s interested in our journey and in partaking in the expedition themselves next year!
In this blog, you’ll find links to the “Who we are” page to learn more about Bader Al Lawati and myself (Ameer Abdulhussain). You’ll also find links to the “Our mission” page, where you can learn about the expedition itself, and you can even check out the journey planned for us and the paths we’ll be taking during our Antarctic expedition at “The Itinerary” page. There is also a Media section where we keep track of all our interviews. Oh, and you see that nifty little timer to the right? That’s the countdown to the expedition!
Speaking of the expedition, being a part of it would not have been possible if not for our very special sponsors who believed in us enough to support us fully, and these sponsors are: Velosi Applus – OHI, The Oman Power & Water Procurement Co., The Cake Gallery, Enhance Oman, & The University of Wollongong in Dubai.
Last, but definitely not least, we do need to give a shout-out to a few special people out there who have not only supported us, but also put in time and effort to help us out in any way possible. We want to thank Marwa Fadhil who took the initiative and created the brilliant logo you see in front of you. We also need to give a big thank you to Nabil Al Busaidi who has given us guidance when we needed it. Mohammed Breki also deserves a lot of credit for persistently getting us contacts and assistance, he was also there when we needed a last-minute emergency contact, so for that, thank you Mohammed! A massive “Thank you” goes out to Mohammed Bahrani for financially helping us when we really needed it. Wijdan Saleem and Photofactory, you guys are genius at what you and thank you so much for creating our amazing photos, and finally, we need to thank Fatima Hamayon and Al Musafir Productions for putting together our brilliant video that you can find below.
We hope you have a great time watching the video, because we honestly had a great time making it! Enjoy!

You probably thought that we were done with the shout-outs, didn’t you? Truth is, there is one last “Thank You” that needs to be said, and that’s to you guys. Thank you for following us and supporting us through our journey, all the positive feedback is truly amazing and we would not have been as motivated if not for all of you.
Thank you.
