Despite tight connections we managed to get our self and all out luggage to Cape Town. After a day of summer in South Africa we boarded the Antarctica flight this morning and are now at Troll, the Norwegian research station in Antarctica.

All along the plan so far. -6 degrees celsius, overcast and no wind.

On the flight I heard that the doctor and chief of the over wintering team of the South African station Sanae just signed up for her third year in a row without leaving Antarctica once. That must be some kind of record.

Tomorrow we are scheduled to fly to the German research station Neumayer.

All the best
