Saturday 11th February – arriving home


Following the short stay in Rothera I travelled home via Chile to Heathrow and was met by Luci.  Being part of the Halley relocation project has been a huge honour and an incredible experience. Antarctica is an extraordinary environment, so clean and beautiful. Now I am back in the UK, one of the biggest differences I noticed was the noise. There was always something going on at Halley with lots people on the stations, so now having my own space, our home seems very quiet. A little ironic given the sparse population in Antarctica. I’m not sure what will measure up to this great experience, however as always I am excited about the next challenge.
