...and his girl left behind. Justin Chambers is going to Antarctica as a chef, and leaving behind all that is normal, for a whole year. Together, but apart, we will document our experiences (well, he'll give me the info verbally and I will turn that in to a blog post!!) as we live in two quite different worlds for those 12 months.

Everyone woke to calmer seas this morning after the Masters and Officers on board altered the ship's course to avoid the stormy weather. More people emerged from their cabins and were spotted around the ship. On a personal note, Justin is feeling much better although still bunged up. He says he is getting keen to just get stuck in to his job and settle in to a good routine on base.
