Since 2011, I have been spending November to April each year working for the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) on Signy Island in the South Orkney Islands, Antarctica. I work as a Zoological Field Assistant on the penguin and seal long-term monitoring programme. Before this, I spent 2.5 years on the sub-Antarctic island of Bird Island, South Georgia, in the South Atlantic.

This blog gives readers an insight into my day-to-day life in the Antarctic, from my first trip south in 2008 to the present day.

Some more beautiful photos on your blog; thanks for sharing them with us.
I guess you are at winding down stage, which must be strange.
I do hope you keep your blog up & let us know how it feels to be back in the "outside" world.

It looks so sweet and nice to see albatros...because it's hard too see here in our country (Indonesia).If I can hear the sound, that would be glad to!
