BLI-SEA-SFO-SYD-CHC! Over 20 hours of flying.
We’ll have a day for training and final prep in Christchurch, NZ and then it’s another 5-6hr flight to McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Things get a little confusing with flying over the international date line. On my way westward I will leave the US on the 11th and arrive in Australia on the 13th, even though it’s only a 14hr flight. On the way home it’s not unusual to arrive before you’ve departed…

Meanwhile, here are some spectacular photos from the Antarctic:

The tags issued for checked luggage. The airlines are given notice to send all lost bags with these tags to Christchurch, NZ.

    Good Grief,Marie, “Spectacular” doesn’t even do justice to these photos! And yet, there’s no other word that would, either. WOW—-thanks for sharing—–AWESOME.
