Flying over Queen Maud Land in a small aircraft from Novo (russian base) to Troll (norwegian base) the landscape is like nothing I ever thought I would see. It's as if someone cut the top of the alps and dropped them into the ice.Just got to Troll. The place is amazing. I need a powernap now.
I am norwegian doctor who worked as expedition doc on the Antarctic research station Troll for the summer season 2007-2008.
