We’re getting closer to our scientific cruise! We’ll be flying out of the UK (and other countries!) in just over a month’s time, to St Johns in Canada, where we will meet the RRS Discovery and head off on cruise number DY081.

The Discovery, however, is about to start its own journey in just a few days, heading off from Southampton on another scientific project, before our rendez-vous in Canada. This means that we have to get as much packed and on to the ship as we possibly can!

We have been busy buying all the bits and pieces that you need at sea, from sample bottles and spectrophotometers, all the way through to mops and buckets.

Kate and Hong Chin buying a mop and a bucket for DY081!

Then it’s a matter of getting everything in boxes. How much stuff do we really need to take?!

Steph, and all the boxes!
