Kit sure to deliver in his new role as Antarctic postman

A postman in Antarctica might seem to be the perfect job for someone wanting to get away from it all, but nothing could be further from the truth. For in the four months that Northern Ireland man Kit Adams and four colleagues will run the Port Lockroy post office, they will welcome 18,000 cruise ship visitors to the tiny island and stamp 50,000 postcards to send to 100 countries.

There is no pressure on him to get letters or postcards delivered the next day making the job a first-class post.

The self-confessed adventure seeker has already had three trips to the Arctic. Life for him is poles apart from most people's experience.
