Traveling to Antarctica

Posted by Anne D Jungblut Oct 26, 2010

I will leave in two days for my trip from London (UK) to Antarctica. I will first fly to New Zealand and then fly down to Antarctica (also called "Ice Flight"). This year I will work with the US Antarctic (USAP) and the New Zealand Antarctic (ANTNZ) Programs. They share some of their logistics and therefore everybody comes first to Christchurch, New Zealand and then flies to Antarctica from there using special aircrafts such as Globemaster or Hercules.




Today I spend most of the day getting  my equipment together for my field work in Antarctica  and packing it that i can ship it to New Zealand . As usual, it was more than i thought and it took me several attempts to get  it all packed. Well, no it is ready to be shipped to New Zealand from where i will fly to Antarctica.
