2019/20 Winter Season

Julie Bernardin on the Vallee Blanche, New Year’s Day

This is a rolling list of things I get up to during the winter season of 2019/20. I’ve had an extended hiatus this Autumn climbing in Greece and Spain, working in Antarctica in November as well as procuring a Swedish racing yacht for future expeditions and adventures!
