The next chapter, Antarctica?

5 May

The yearly recruitment drive for work at New Zealand’s Scott Base in Antarctica closed last week. I applied for 2 jobs, the field support role and the cleaning role, the same as I did last year.

Once again I was unsuccessful, or was I? Is that bloody glass half empty or half full?

Secretly I was happy that my application was unsuccessful, as I had been secretly having a love affair with another potential chapter of my journey. Thailand onto Antarctica would of been great, a dream, litterally, but it wasn’t meant to be. The reason why I was unsuccessful was because I have been having feelings for another chapter. I will let you in on a little secret, I had already booked tickets onto the next chapter even before I had heard back from Antarctica (altough I had a contingency plan if I was excepted for Antarctica in the form of a return ticket).

So you are probably wanting to know where the next chapter of Hap working the world will be set. The most logical step for most people in Thailand is to travel South East Asia. Well I’m not the most logical person.

No, it’s time for a change, it’s time for a winter, it’s time to knuckle down and get my spanish sorted, it’s time for lakes and mountains, cheap red wine and steak, ummmmm steak. My next chapter will take place in a continent that I have been to, but I have not lived and worked, only back-packed through. The next chapter will take place in a country in which the cruise ships leave for Antarctica, what an opportunity that would be, working on Antarctic boats, now that would be a job. So where did I just buy tickets to, where will Mandy and I be touching down on the 16th of June……………..Argentina.
