News Americas, NASSAU, Bahamas, Thurs. April 23, 2015: Two Bahamas explorers who made history by becoming the first Bahamians to ever journey to the North Pole are back in Nassau and the sun.
“Dese Polar Bears are so glad to be back home, #Bahamas!!!” they tweeted shortly after landing in The Bahamas after hours of flying from Norway to Russia and London.
Mark Roberts and Shaune Adderley journeyed to the North Pole with several New Zealanders, braving blizzard like conditions to plant the flag of their home country in the North Pole and make history as the first ever Bahamians to make it their.
Roberts says he was “invited by a friend who has lived in The Bahamas for a number of years and he with a group of New Zealanders were going to the North Pole.”
The average temperature on the North Pole, Alaska is a blistering -20 F on a warm day to -80 F with wind chills. The duo first flew to London to begin their journey. Then it was off to Ausland, Norway and then to Russia. The North Pole is the northernmost point on the Earth, lying diametrically opposite the South Pole.
