Date Dec 25, 2014

The famed Antarctic explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes once declared that “there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” We’ve rounded up some videos from across the web which take that statement to heart, and tackle some of the coldest places on earth in unexpected locations…
