Well, the phrase “holiday season” signifies, generally to the world population, the time between Christmas and New Year’s. In the last edition, I talked about a fulfilling Christmas celebration coloured with Christmas buddy gifts, chocolates, parties, delicious food and icebergs. The same trend continues this edition into the New Year’s Eve celebration, birthday parties, and Mid-Cruise get-together amidst all the workload, which seemed to have increased. The reason for such is that we were chasing a weather window until the 1st of January, after which bad weather was expected, and which therefore deemed it necessary to finish most of the coring station work before the bad weather came towards us. Hence, the holiday season was hectic with work but also double the fun with all the celebrations. It was almost as the saying goes, “You only deserve to be in warm water if you put your feet in cold water first”.
