When I was in the Arctic wilderness, the connection with nature is irreplaceable. The energy there is completely different – so pure and so awakening.

Because we live in a tropical country – so we don’t have the cold we need. So hence, I order the ice from the ice man! And in total we will have 120 kilo[s] of ice inside, and the temperature of the water will go down to about zero or maybe negative one.

[The] first 20-30 seconds would be the most difficult. You might want to run out, jump out, just scream and so on. It’s very likely that you feel the sharpness – the stabbing into your skin.
