After 4 days at Novo, we were very happy to reach finally Princess Elisabeth station. The flight was only 1h20 but it was again amazing with wonderful views on the ice and mountains.

The station itself is beautiful and perfectly fitting in the gorgeous environment. We just wish to sit and look at the landscape. Nevertheless, we have to prepare our field campaign for which we will leave likely Wednesday.

At the station, we have first the general briefing by Alain Hubert, the station manager. We then visited the different parts of the base and discussed the organisation of the mission. We will have the field training Monday.

We should also check that all the material is well arrived and that everything is working well.
