We've done it. We Reached the South Pole!

We reached the South Pole at 10.30 pm Chile time about 1.30 am UK time. Today we skied 14 miles and we could see the South Pole station from a long way away but we had to walk a long way around which made it quite frustrating.
It was very exciting but we’re all very tired now. When we got here we hugged and some people cried.
Hopefully we’ll be flying back to Union Glacier in about an hour. It was a really good experience to have and to get the record.
The trip brought me closer to Dad, but I also had to put up with his snoring.
We had a short tour of the research station at the South Pole which wasn’t what I expected as they had a basketball pitch.
I’m so looking forward to having a shower and some home made chocolate brownies.

At Ubley Primary School, near Bath, we have been following your adventure as part of our Topic. We have been learning about Shackleton's heroism and the Antarctic, so were excited by your expedition. Congratulations on your achievement and we hope you can escape your Dad's snoring now!
