BLURB

I only went to make my family proud, but now I’ve been stuck out here for ages. ‘You’ll never get there’ they told me, ‘You’ll freeze before you find it!’ I didn't listen, I didn't want too. I purchased the most expensive and advanced snow gear, the best ski’s they had to offer with the matching diamond finished hiking poles and the thickest down thermal jacket with matching helmet. BRRR…But I am just so, so so fu*&ing cold. I even trained for weeks, sitting in ice sculptures in Harbin to withstand these temperatures. All can I think about is consuming thebaijiu in my pocket, arguablythe best winter jacket I’ve found yet. Just 3052 miles to go until I arrive in St.Peterburg and only one more bottle left….
