New people, new place, new adventure….

HeY GuyS!!!!

Thank you all so much for your comments… you all feel like such a long way away right now! Was nice to hear some people from the ‘castle’ as Canford has been nicknamed by the people here…

I am now so used to have a camera in my face the whole time it feels weird when there isn’t one there! The launch was amazing but so busy – straight from the presentation to the trip down the river in our coats and hats holding these massive flags – we looked so cool…. I’m sorry only a few people could come – would have loved to see more of you guys – thank you so much for coming to see me!

Have learnt so much in the last couple of days – from how to think like a scientist to how to answer a question from some horrible journalist… had an interview from T4 which was exciting – well meeting the presenter was – he was gorgeous..!

Hope you’re good,

lots LOVE Nonie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

P.S> Remeber to ask me questions and send your support by sunday because on monday the 17th at 11 am my 2nd video will and i will be answering and replying then! MISS U XXXXX

Farewell Farewell

Hello everyone, hope you are all well.

I’m having a great time, but we are certainly being kept busy. We have had talks from a scientist, Mark Maslin who spoke about how we can tackle climate change. We also have had a series of workshop, the art and media being my favourite. It was a brilliant experience filming as well as being filmed and art workshop inspired me to do a series of art pieces. We also had a interview with T4 and we all had to act really funky.

Bye for now
Liam

Hallo, ich bin es Ina! Auch wenn ich bis jetzt noch nicht in der Arktis war, waren die letzten Tage, hier in London, unglaublich!
Am Sonntag war eine grosse Feier im Southbank Centre, wo wir uns als Teilnehmer der Cape Farewell Youth Expedition 2007, vorgestellt haben. Danach sind wir hinunter an die Themse gegangen, wo wir in Schlauchboote gestiegen sind, mit denen wir vom House of Parlament zur Towerbridge gefahren sind und wieder zurueck. Es war ein unglaubliches Erlebnis. Am Montag haben wir einen Workshop gemacht, wo wir unter anderem unser erstes Video aufgenommen haben und mit einen Englischen Fernsehsender Interviews gefuehrt haben. Ich hoffe es geht genau so spannend weiter wie bisher und wuerde mich sehr freuen, wenn ihr mir bis zum Donnerstag den 13. September alle eure Fragen in meinen Blog schreibt, die ich dann am Freitag den 14. September um 11:00 Uhr ueber live blogging beantworten kann.

Liebe Gruesse
Ina
