Soon I’ll embark on a new expedition on FS Polarstern. While some aspects remain familiar, (again at sea with the flying dutchmen) other things are slightly new (A new Chief Officer, First time crossing the Weddell Sea, new responsibilities as data manager, RMT-meister….) or even completely new (leaving the best girlfriend in the world and two kids behind for two months). It will be a great adventure.

As before I will try to keep you posted on what we do during an expedition.
