As almost every kid dreams of becoming an astronaut one day... Antarctica is second best (if not even better).
Anyway, I got a baby boy on September 17th, so I guess it will take quite some time until I can even think of leaving them for some time.
Why I want it? Difficult question. I don't consider myself a looney, but extreme wilderness and, in general, life in extreme conditions is attracting me. Hey, it may sound silly. As European, but working in Africa I am missing heavy fog as dense as milk, ice and snow, often seen in Europe... I especially enjoy taking long walks when the visibility is under 10 meters.
Now, i am contradicting myself (not being a looney and enjoying heavy fog)
