The project Following the (Magnetic) North Pole is still on going. It starts when I've been realized by chance that the North that a compass is pointing, it is actually constantly changing. 1400 km in the last 2 centuries. So something apparently static is constantly changing (!!).

From this new (for me) idea of North, the research project is structured in some steps, ending with an expedition to the position of the Magnetic North Pole (very very North of Canada) and following during some days (as much as I can) the "random" trace of the Magnetic North Pole.
