world Remote Post Office: Four UK women take up jobs of counting Antarctica penguins and run world’s most remote post office. Read here

Four women from the UK will travel to a remote part of Antarctica to work on activities such as running the world’s remote post office and counting penguins on the island.

Clare Ballantyne, Mairi Hilton, Natalie Corbett and Lucy Bruzzone were chosen from many candidates to headline the historic landmark Port Lockroy on Goudier Island.

The crew will forego home comforts to live and work in a place with no running water or flushing toilets.

Ms. Corbett, who will be in charge of the gift shop, will leave her husband at home for what she calls “a solo honeymoon.” The ladies will share the island with a colony of gentoo penguins, which Ms Hilton will be responsible for monitoring, as well as sub-zero temperatures and virtually constant daylight.
