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.

I randomly end up in your blog.
I found your blog is very interesting to me. I'm an Indonesian, and Indonesia is tropical country. Very different from Antartica. Read your blog, makes me wondering, what it feels living in different place with very different situation, weather, environments.
