Roald Amundsen 1872-1928

Roald Amundsen <- First to South Pole [globe] (Ahead of Scott, who did not make it back!)
Oslo, Norway

A highlight of our time in this beautiful place was a visit to the "Frammuseet," a museum housing the entire original Arctic exploration ship Fram, built in 1892, and used by Amundsen.  Odyssey 2000 bicycle riders have climbed some challenging terrain, but I'm afraid "Roald" would still think we're pampered! - Arnold
