In this riveting book you get what it promises you in the title.

This is Gabriella's story, a story of a woman who wanted to be reborn.

Antarctic Odyssey – A New Beginning is written by Gabriella Guglielminotti Trivel, also known as "The Flying Witch" due to her wit and passion for flying, she is an Italian linguist who started working in Italy as a tour leader, interpreter and then moved to UK in 1998.

She worked in the travel business for several years and then, due to being made redundant from work, she decided to pursue her other passion in life, the human mind and its potential.

She trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming and investigated several alternative therapies like Reiki, Shiatsu, Aura Soma, the De Martini method, Macrobiotics, Do-in, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Hypnotherapy, Time Line Therapy, The Journey, The Work which all gave her a better and holistic understanding of the human being that we all are.

In 2008 she joined a group of people going to Antarctica to face their fears and limiting beliefs to test herself and put into action first hand in a dramatic way what she learnt and then pass it on to others. She wrote this book about it where she describes her inner journey while she was down under with penguins, seals and the ice.

Since 2009 she helps women to discover their potential through their menstrual cycle, something that still to these days is considered taboo and is called "the curse". She does workshops and personal sessions with women to share her knowledge and personal experience of her feminine cycle and with men to help them understand how women work and how to be an aware partner to deepen their intimate relationships.

Her vision is to create the woman of the XXI century who is totally in line with herself, her beliefs, her body and her vision so to reharmonise the Planet and create a more harmonious way of living for both men and women.

What the reviewers said

"This book differs markedly from the usual travelogue descriptions of journeys abroad. Yes, it does contain descriptive text and pictures of the wonderful places the author visited, stunning views and wildlife, but it is so much more than that. It is a journey of self-discovery, a new beginning following a period of difficulty in the author's life, told from a very personal, heart and soul, point of view. Although an 'organised' adventure to Antarctica, there were many personal challenges faced by the author, great and small. As a retired aircraft accident investigator and pilot of some 30 years, I can fully appreciate how difficult and good it can be to face up to and overcome one's personal fears, physical and emotional challenges. Written in English, not the author's native language, this book has a charming and different style. It is a good and satisfying read. Join her adventure and enjoy."

Peter Thomas Claiden, C Eng, FRAeS, OBE

"Gabriella Guglielminotti Trivel has bared her soul in this writing journey of life where she confronts her physical and mental capacities face on, stretching them to what seem like never-ending limits. This book will surprise you, delight you, inspire you and strengthen your resolve to get as much out of life as Gabriella.

Reading this book you will learn that hardships are there to be overcome, life offers opportunities in forms that maybe one would not anticipate and fear of the unknown can be fear of oneself. Gabriella snatched her life by the horns, wrestled with it and came out the other side an adventurer, a writer and a philosopher, with an open and positive attitude challenged to the extremes by her journey. Read it and realise life is out there – you need not travel to the white continent or emulate this plucky lady's adventure; start mapping out your new life by reading this book. It has hidden depths."
Catherine Parker, freelance writer/editor and Reiki practitioner.

"For anyone who fancies a trip to Antarctica, this is a 'must-read'...".

Jane Noble Knight, aka The Pilgrim Mother
