Chile - 4 January 2016, Travelling home and photo highlights of Antarctica

We were booked onto an evening flight from Santiago to Madrid.  The flight was on time, and even though it was late in the UK, I had time to watch a few films before I was forced to switch off by my Mum.

Travelling home is always a good time to think about my trip. Going to Antarctica was very special and I am really grateful to my parents for taking me.

I think it's really important for everyone who visits Antarctica to be an Ambassador and tell everyone they can about how beautiful and special it is and that it must be protected at all costs.

We were on time getting to Madrid and had time for dinner before going to our gate and finding that our flight to London was delayed by an hour.  That is always a pain when you just want to get home.  It meant that we missed out coach, so by the time we reached Compton Martin it was 2 am on Tuesday 5th January 2016....Only 5 hours sleep before school, but I'm used to that from this trip.
