into 90 degrees north

On 17 April 2007, Sharifah Mazlina became Malaysia’s first woman to reach the North Pole and effectively became the first Asian woman to reach both North and South Poles. This 9 1/2 day expedition covered a distance of 110km from the last degree (89 degrees N) till the North Pole. This is her account of her second journey into the ice. Written by Bernice Chauly.
