Meet Chief Steward, Adrian Morgan!

I like to see my kids and hear about what they are doing. When I'm home, the time flies by very quickly. I spend my free time doing whatever my family wants to do... I just want to be with them. We might take a family holiday, go out to eat at a restaurant, or relax around our house. 

What language(s) do you speak? How do you say "Hello" in your language?:

My first language is Afrikaans, and my second language is English. To say "Hello" in Afrikaans, you would say "Hallo" or "Goeimiddag", which roughly means "Good afternoon".

Do you have pets?:

My family has a dog and a cat. Our dog's name is Biggie, and I don't know the cat's name because we got it recently and I haven't met it yet. I really like dogs, but I'm a bit afraid of cats.

Have you traveled? Where have you traveled to?:

I have been lucky to travel all around the South Atlantic Ocean and to Antarctica. We mostly visit islands like Gough Island (inhabited by six people who run a remote weather station, which the ship resupplies), Marion Island (again, only inhabited by a small number of people who run a research station), Tristan da Cuhna (the most remote, inhabited archepelago in the world, only accessible by ship), and the SANAE IV South African research base, located on the top of a bluff in Vesleskarvet, Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. Each of these isolated communities depend on the S.A. Agulhas II to deliver new supplies and people each year. I have visited each of these places several times, and this is also my second trip to the sink site of Ernest Shackleton's ship in the Weddell Sea.
