On the first, day I saw many penguins sliding on the ice and diving into the water. It was so cool! The penguins are super smart, whenever a killer whale got close, they'd jump back on the ice.

The weather was brutal, it was -70 degree weather and the wind cut through your clothes. I was a frozen popsicle at the end of each day.

Hiking was a giant hit on my muscles. I burned a TON of calories and had to consume a TON also.

I encountered killer whales which were super scary luckily I didn't fall in, or I'd have been lunch.

My daily routine was wake up, eat eggs and hike until I reached the nearest shore and collected water and scallops. I'd then hike home and eat my supper and go to bed. Repeat.

Sleeping was difficult because it was so cold. I had to bundle up tight!

I stayed very healthy because I was able to consume protein and burn calories easy, by running from things that looked hungry.

The coolest thing I saw was an arctic seal playing with its babies.

Overall, my trip was really cold and interesting. I loved getting out of my comfort zone and seeing new things. The food I packed was not too pleasing and got old after a while. It was quite fun and new. I'd definitely do it again.
