Na een tocht van 71 dagen en meer dan 1.100 kilometer is de Britse poolreiziger Henry Worsley zondag overleden. Worsley wilde als eerste Antarctica alleen oversteken, maar strandde op 50 kilometer van zijn eindpunt. Fans konden heel zijn reis via zijn blog en Facebookpagina volgen. De selfies die hij daar postte, tonen de tragiek van zijn reis: Worsley barstte van de levenslust, maar zijn lichaam bezweek uiteindelijk toch.
 

Let the adventure begin !
