A Polar Explorer Speaks Candidly of the Charm and Difficulties That Come With Living in Antarctica

The resident of Saint Petersburg, Denis Melnikov, works as a geophysicist. He has already visited Siberia, Central Asia, India, and now has even gone to Antarctica. This continent doesn’t have anything but cold weather, icebergs, and penguins, yet it has always attracted Melnikov. And now, his dream has finally come true. He describes all his adventures on Twitter with the nickname The Polar Daddy and thousands of followers are in awe of the photos he posts.

We at Bright Side eagerly follow Melnikov’s account and love all his new posts. He even has a thread that explains what to do if you suddenly wake up and feel a strong desire to go to Antarctica. So if you’re also someone who likes the cold and is crazy about penguins, now you have a step-by-step guide on how to get to this wondrous place.
