In March 2015 Ilse boarded an expedition cruise to the South Pole. For two weeks she cruised to and around the Antarctic peninsula. She came back from the experience with thousands of pictures of ice, landscapes and fauna and flora. Ilse wanted to share her adventure. So, in October 2015 she hosted her first exhibition on her polar voyage.
The exposition was a success and has led to a lecture on the topic and now to the labels for the Antarctica Series of Mark & Manny’s Malts.
