Find Your Southpole

On the 17th of January, Astrid Furholt from Norway wrote a new peace of history in being the first woman who traveled the longest stretch on Roald Amundsens’s famous route to the South Pole.

The South Pole dream!

I made a choice. Nine years ago a dying patient I was working with shared a life-transforming message with me: “Astrid, live while you are alive”…

My dream was to reach the South Pole. And I want to inspire you to follow yours! We have one life, so now is the time!

The dying patient

“Astrid, you have to live while you are alive”…

In my work as a nurse specialized in cancer, these are the last words one of my patients told me.

His biggest regret was to lose his time here and not following his dreams.

He kept pushing it ahead and also being afraid what others might say. And he was afraid he couldn’t make it, and now it was too late. It’s a moment I will never forget. This conversation did something to me.

Me, together with Sivert, you will be reminded of the same lesson that patient gave me. To begin living and follow your dream.

Follow your dream!

Your goal can seem way to big and out of reach. But you have to believe in it, And you will grow into it.

Nothing is impossible until you have tried, and this is what it’s all about. Dare to try, take a few risk and see the opportunity. No matter what other people might say otherwise.

Your dream can come true

By joining our journey to the South Pole, we hope to inspire you to make something out of your own dreams. To do something about it.

No matter how small or big, we would be happy if you would share it with us, and with other people. By supporting us, you will have the option to write and share your dream with the world!
