Georgie and Simon's Trip 2008 - and now 2009! travel blog


Well, Changing lights in a warehouse in the middle of Toronto may not have been a bad idea!

No, just kidding but woah, I'm in for an experience! We are literally at the first stage of building a gold mine in the middle of nowhere in the Arctic. At the moment I am at a place called Robert's Bay, about 80km south of Cambridge Bay. The current accommodation consists of tents that house four people each, and the particular camp I'm in, called Matrix camp, has about about 20 odd of these plus extra long tents for the showers, meal room, toilets and recreation room. The permanent accommodation is still being built and as with everything, parts are needed to finish things off. The parts are flown in at irregular intervals and all flights are dependant on the weather.
