Punta Arenas, Chile

After a few months of being home, I am off again for some Antarctica work. I am in Punta Arenas, Chile, on the shores of the Strait of Magellan, getting ready to sail for South Georgia, in the middle of the South Atlantic. 5 weeks at sea on the ice breaker Nathaniel B. Palmer.
Quite exciting...!

Après quelques mois passés à la “maison”, je suis à nouveau sur le départ pour les îles de Géorgie du Sud ! Sur les rives du détroit de Magellan, à Punta Arénas au Chili, les derniers préparatifs pour cette mission scientifique se terminent. A venir, 5 semaines sur le brise-glace Nathaniel B. Palmer…
