@homewardboundprojects isn't all women, you know. There are men there, working to support them in their own way. Sailor Pablo, he is the last you see when you step off #TheUshaia and the first when you return. A warrior grip to help you off the bobbing zodiac, great forearm roped in muscle, a baritone rumbling gently from a barrel chest to welcome you back aboard by name. Gracious and attentive. Some of the women swoon.
Sure. I'd consider turning for that.

Failing that, a little lie down never hurt anyone. #homewardbound2016 #mothernaturesdaughters #chillpun
That said, once these women got out of the #Antarctic Ocean, the rebirth looked almost worth it. #PolarPlunge #neardeathexperience #homewardbound2016 #mothernaturesdaughters #justdontaskthesons
#PolarPlunge: when you cast aside any sense of self preservation and submerge yourself in the #Antarctic ocean. Tragically, I couldn't. My testicles would never have forgiven me. #homewardbound2016 #mothernaturesdaughters #mothernaturesicicles
The one thing about @homewardboundprojects' journey into the heart of whiteness was that it always left the women free to start things from scratch. A blank canvas to share lessons, teach one another about the biology of their surrounds or discover the true, all consuming stench of penguin poo. Truly there's nothing on Earth like #Antarctica. #homewardbound2016 #mothernaturesdaughters #somesmellsarebetterleftunsmelled
Take it where you get it. #sunbaking #nyc
On the @homewardboundprojects it wasn't all wuhales and wuhater. It was, more often than not, getting to the heart of things, being there for one another and reminding each other every step of the way that our words shape our reality: don't be defeatist or combative, choose to be constructive, ensuring the solutions we come to are made from the healthiest of places. #Antarctica #warmstheheart #mothernaturesdaughters
The first of a few favs from my time spent shooting the @homewardboundprojects very first journey to #Antarctica. Whale spotting aboard #TheUshaia. Eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with "wuh"...
Kitty has this typing thing down #pat.
As good a standing desk as any. #openplan #lackinginamenties
But this one was juuust right. #PlantingFields (#IfYouCant) #Arboretum (#JoinUm)

Tossing my placard onto Washington DC's growing carpet of today's sentiments, littered with kindness and passion and mostly articulate yet oft funny puns, I had to wonder: In just one day, after all that, how many minds have been changed, in the most small and profound of ways? Be they for better or worse, amongst the throng or watching from on high, how many out there are now looking at women differently? And not just women, but at all the others Trump has managed so effortlessly to shine a light on? One can easily imagine (and indeed we saw it at the hotel later) an awareness building into conversations, an invigorated sense of connection, a begrudging swallow of locker room talk. Here, after wandering through just one protest of many, with hundreds of thousands amongst millions worldwide, it was Cruise-grade crystal clear: this world isn't divided anywhere near as badly as we've been telling ourselves. In fact, one could argue, it's never been more unified. One could even argue that all of this just galvanises everyone to unify for change and goodwill even more. And if one could argue that, s'pose it would only be logical to say: with dear ol' Trumpywumpy in office, what a wonderful year this could be.
Also, nice work @sweet_briar_rose for the well timed snap. You shoot pretty good for a girl ❤️✨ #WomensMarch #WashingtonDC is #WhyIMarch but for so much more #ItsSimplyWorth just #BeingTheChange
We'd march the route, but the route is full of marchers. #thisiswhat500000pluslookslike #compareTHATtoinaugirationday #whywemarch #isalsowhywestandaround
Can't see #TheWhiteHouse for the placards. #theywantaleadernotacreepytweeter
I was gonna wax lyrical about looking down at oceans of clouds after weeks of icebergs, but I've just caught up on film news. Holy crap. You go for a few weeks and Star Wars births, Bladerunner glitters like C-beams, Guardians gets sexual feelings and Tom Cruise is in a... reboot? Of The Mummy? #tistheseasontobescifi #unlessyoureTomCruise #HomewardBound16 and #Antarctica #beyondhashtags
Taxiing down a soggy runway bound for a questionably icy Antarctica to film the totes worthy first women of #HomewardBound2016. See you in a month, #NYC 😘🏃🏻💨⛴ #wherestheicebergemoji
