Spits­ber­gen, the Ant­ar­c­tic and the Coro­na virus

The win­ter sea­son should be super busy at this time in Spits­ber­gen, but ins­tead it is very silent now in Lon­gye­ar­by­en and Barents­burg. No tou­rists the­re at all. The only thing that you might hear is the tou­rism indus­try crying.

And on this blog and news site: also not­hing at the time being.

The Ant­ar­c­tic is the only coro­na-free con­ti­nent, but that does not mean that it does not affect us here in the south. We have now been to the Ant­ar­c­tic for a while and I am still far south with Ort­eli­us. So I guess that I am curr­ent­ly the last one in the world who gets any news that seem to be chan­ging by the minu­te and hence it would pro­ba­b­ly be sil­ly to post any „news“ here.

Atlantic Ocean

But I did and do still wri­te about our jour­ney here in the south, in the blog on www.antarctic.eu. Also here, the Coro­na virus curr­ent­ly governs the world. No, not direct­ly. We on Ort­eli­us are all well, health-wise. But it sends us on a stran­ge jour­ney. Not as plan­ned back to the Ant­ar­c­tic Pen­in­su­la, but up north and back home. Slow­ly and with quite a few extra twists and bends that we still need to find out about. Read more in my ant­ar­c­tic blog.
