Scott Base - Antarctica

Walked over to Scott Base from McMurdo. Easy stroll of some 3.5km each way. They have a little gift shop there which is great. They all sorts of T Shirts, caps, sweaters and the like. They except credit cards, US dollars, and NZ Dollars, not oz dollars. A trip worth the walk and a tour of the pressure ridge just off shore in the sea ice is worth the look. A small base compared to the US one just over the hill. Unlike McMurdo, you can't just walk around were ever you like here, you need to have an invite to look around beyond the gift shop. Was nice to talk with the kiwi's and as usuall were willing to share their experiences with us.  Cheers guys
