My 5th Continent – Brown Station

Dear Reader, we’ve made it to 64°53′43″S 62°52′15″W, welcome in Antarctica proper, continental, at Brown Station (wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_Station). The station is manned only during summer. Otherwise, it belongs to Gentoo penguins, Snowy Sheathbills, Kelp Gulls and Blue-eyed Shags.station

And to tourists, who slide down the hill. slidingThe view of the surrounding glaciers is magnificent. I loved the calm water and the mirror images. glacierice

It’s always good to know where you are in the world.

As ever, if you don’t know what to do, go and fetch a pebble.pebble hunt And since I have now ‘ticked’ five continents, I can think about the missing ones – North America and Australia & Oceania!
