Introduction

And at some point we started our way with a step.
Places we have never seen,
things we have never heard,
scents we have never smelled,
things we have never touched before,
a taste like we have never tasted before
and feelings we have never experienced before.
They help us gain back the fragments of emotion lost unknowingly over the years on this journey.
What will we think once we arrive?

Barking at -40 degrees, howling at -50 degrees and shouting out loud at -60 degrees, in this primitive wilderness beyond the roaring ocean.
Far away from the civilization at the tip of the world, furthest south.
This is Antarctica and the place the four girls travel to, while they aim for ‘a place further than the universe’.
We follow the girls into a time when we remember how dazzling life can be.
