Travel - How to Get a Job in Antartica.

I have so many wonderful memories of my time in Antarctica: lying in my bunk in our Nissen hut home, hearing the rumbling of the glaciers calving around us and the tapping of the sheathbills feet as they ran back and forth on our tin roof; discovering the first gentoo chick had hatched on midwinter’s day and our island being freed from the surrounding ice for the first time; the sound and smell of the gentoo penguins braying around us; ice flowing in and out of the bay around the island on beautiful clear blue-sky days and penguin chicks catching snowflakes in their beaks.
