Have you ever thought of volunteering to join a research team to work in the Arctic?

Share Your Response

 

Without doubt, there are times where you want to do nothing more than sit by a tropical pool and sip fruity rum drinks on vacation.

However, something that I've learned through our own One World Journeys expeditions is that exploration and work in the wild is equally intoxicating and very rewarding for the soul. The kind of fun, adventure and comraderie that comes from hard work in the wilderness are seldom duplicated in any other context.

So, in answer to the question, no, I haven't thought of taking time off to work with a research team in the Artic. But I can imagine that it would be a very rewarding experience.

When I read this story, I tried to imagine the smell of the land, the nip of the cold in the morning, the awareness of polar bears in the vicinity, all wrapped in a cloak of learning about the Arctic. Sounds cool. Pun intended!

 

What an extraordinary opportunity to help scientists! Amazing -- that ordinary people with no special skills can volunteer on these kinds of research projects. Thanks for your story. Blue
