    Nansen – now that’s my kind of explorer. How to reach the North Pole? Stock an ice-ship full of nice food and drink, employ an on-board chef and let the arctic current do it’s work.

    Of course then there was the bit where they left the ship and had to eat their dogs… but the first bit was genius!!
