AROUND NORTH AMERICA
Part 2 : Total Meltdown
Distant adventures, long-term travels, Damien loves them. But he does not think it necessary to cross 36 meridians for the thrill of exploration and discovery to be at the "rendez-vous". In 2012, he initiated a series of small-scale local adventures, in the french mountains.
Ten years ago, a few enthusiasts decided to revive the historic salt production of Bourgneuf Bay in the west of France.
They dug out and cleared the ancient salt pans to harvest Bay Salt once again.
he Dumont d'Urville scientific station in the Antarctic is one of the most remote places on earth. Jonathan, a young researcher, is about to spend on year on this station.
After four months of summer, the longest winter on Earth is settling in. The pack ice replaces the open sea. With temperatures as low as –37° C and winds of up to 300 kph, even the most resilient animals leave the region. The station soon becomes inaccessible, and everyone leaves -with the exception of Emperor penguins... and a handful of people who stay behind.
