  1. HI! I read your experiences with the Yakut Horse, which has been fascinating me as an animal and horse lover recently. I was wondering – how is their disposition and behavior? How does it compare to other horse breeds?

    Appreciate any insight!

    Thanks,

    Joe

  2. Hello,
    My name is Avi Taylor and I was hoping for advice on how to become a modern-day explorer. I am 16 years old and I am inspired by the work you have done. I have a passion for discovery, research, and exploration. I hope to pursue a career in which I can better our planet, and you seem like an expert in doing just that. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

  3. Dear Mikael,
    I studied Geography and currently do my PhD at an ocean research institute in northern Germany until the middle of next year. I joined several sailing expeditions, which I really enjoyed a lot. With respect to the question what I wanna do after my PhD is finished..I would like to plan/join expeditions that also have some scientific background and/or a historical one. Due to the fact that I would need more skills on for instance expedition planning etc I was thinking of starting with a course at gapforce (if I find the money to do so) in order to find a start into this kind of field. Would you have any advice on how to get started?
    Really like what you are doing and wish you all the best!
    Best regards,

  4. Hello! I’m a high school student and for as long as I can remember I know I’ve wanted to explore in my future. I have no idea where to start, what I need to do, study, etc. so I was wondering if I could have some tips about how to become a “modern day explorer”. Additionally, just out of curiosity I wanted to know how you have the finances to provide for your travels? And how old were you when you first started your expeditions? Thank you and have a nice day, sorry to bother you!

  5. Hello, I’m a grammar school student who is 12 years old. Recently, I have been really interested in becoming an explorer like you, and I know it may sound a bit mad because I’m only young, but soon I’ll be needing to choose my subjects for GCSE and everything related with geography and the world in general interests me a lot. Other people tell me that its nearly impossible to become an explorer and that I should just try something else, also that not many girls like doing it, but I still want to try it out. I just wanted to know your view on what I should do, maybe wait at an older age to decide what I want to do? Is it possible for girls to be explorers too? Thankyou, Anna.

  6. Hi Anna,

    Great to hear from you and you are indeed a very special young lady who should continue towards to world of exploration and explorers. And you are just what is needed for this world to develop forward from an amazing amount of more or less tiresome men who just makes things look dumber than ever, so yes, go for it now! There´s absolueltely now difference between men and women, just different approaches and at this stage, we need loads of girls and women to become explorers! I hope at least one of my own daughters will continue with exploration! We are right now in greenland and just came back from a walk and training session where thye caught their first cod on a fishing rod.

    And Anna, don´t listen to what other people say, especially if they are negative and say it is impossible. find people who are positive and just don´t worry about the negative ones.

    I am here, so if you need my help, tell me.

    Go for it Anna!

    Mikael
