            I hear a lot of people get hooked on working there - is that true? Work the summer and then travel the rest of the year... sounds OK to me!
          4. > 1y
            Yeah, some have been coming down for almost 30 years.. They are called "OAE -Old Antarctic Explorers" but yeah, there are a few that travel for six months then work for six months. i think most tend to take a scenic route home.. like me, i spent some time in New Zealand and Australia before came back to the States. Next year, I'm looking to take the Trans-Siberian Railroad on my way home.

            @Sarah Eiseman - this dude Fernando is just rad. He's getting back to Antarctica now so he might be a bit quiet... but he's totally worth a follow.
