Although on yesterday’s blog post I concluded that maybe the kissing of a statue in Punta Arenas was the key to the expedition’s success, it is possible that that was not the reason.
Well, if it was not superstition and myths, what else could it be? A few people will say that it was due to chance, fortune and luck. Roald Amundsen, however, had a slightly different view on the matter, and I quote from him:

 

“Victory awaits him who has everything in order, luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time, this is called bad luck”
It may be that he was on to something…
