Mixed emotions as the expedition for us drew to an end. There was a sense of accomplishment for every success of this leg of the expedition, and hope for the success of those that are continuing on during the next year. MOSAiC students walked away with satisfaction for what we learned and the networks we were able to build. There was also excitement to return home to see friends and family, and to share our stories. However, it was sad to leave and return to normal life. Lifelong friendships were formed on this cruise. It was an emotional day!
