For adventurers and nature lovers, this can be a dream summer job. A New Zealand cruise company is looking for an outdoor expedition leader to join them on a special Kiwi journey on the most distant Sub-Antarctic islands.

After being granted permission to sail New Zealand’s sole season, cruise company Heritage Expeditions is looking for crew and guides to join them from Fiordland to the Auckland Islands this summer.

“We are looking for extraordinary individuals who have a passion for New Zealand, its wildlife and its story,” said commercial director and expedition leader Aaron Russ.
Applicants will need a sense of adventure and be able to balance multiple responsibilities on Spirit of Enderby’s 50-passenger icebreaker.

“The oceans can be very temperamental – you have to be able to think, and stay on your feet,” explains Aaron. But for those who can afford it, this could be your ticket to one of the most interesting and difficult to reach places on the planet: Antarctica.

Enderby will set sail with a week-long itinerary around Stewart Island and a 13-day trip to the Subantarctic Islands before embarking on a guest expedition to New Zealand’s claim to Antarctica at the Ross Dependency.

The company says knowledge of the area’s history, flora and fauna would be a plus, but it would be suitable for anyone in research, hospitality or adventure travel who is looking for a challenge.

“We are looking for extraordinary individuals who have a passion for New Zealand, its wildlife and its story,” said Aaron.

“New Zealanders are renowned for providing the next level of service with a smile when under pressure, and this is an excellent opportunity to tap into some of the local talent who may be looking for an exciting career change.”

For more information or to submit an application, the company can be contacted via [email protected]

Last month the ship, Spirit of Enderby also known as Professor Khromov was granted entry to New Zealand. The ice-fortified research vessel and its Russian crew were trapped outside New Zealand waters by the country’s cruise ship ban until it was granted special exemptions for the Kiwi-only season in the Southern Ocean.

Now considering the trip, Aaron says this southern itinerary will appeal to Kiwis who have “their wings cut by Covid”, want to “mark a wish list adventure and explore the farthest reaches of our amazing backyard.”

Food vendors still provide service during the canceled Bloomsburg Fair week Local News | Instant News


BLOOMSBURG – Bloomsburg Fair foodies can enjoy their favorite treats until October 3 even though the 165th annual event was canceled due to COVID-19.

But food vendors decided to do what they did in 2011 when Tropical Storm Lee flooded the night market, in Bloomsburg – serving food.

The exhibition is set to open on Saturday and run until October 3.

“We are not as busy as we would be if we were inside the fair, but we still see a lot of people,” James Banuzio, of Center Hall, worked at the Fryin Packer Factory on Saturday on Route 11 near the Bloomsburg Exhibition Area.

“People come but it’s not the same.”

For Bloomsburg University students, Megan Gibbons, 20, from Phoenixville, and Alyssa Mitchell, 20, from Dutchess, NY, eating a fair meal isn’t the same as being at the event.

“At least that’s something,” said Gibbons. “At least we should go down and get some food.”

About two miles away where several other booths serving fair food were set up outside Route 11, Becky Higgle, 32, from Frackville, said she went to Bloomsburg because she wanted a fair meal.

The Bloomsburg Exhibition Association made an announcement in July that the event would be canceled.

“Whether it’s in the fairground or not, I can get my fair share of food,” said Cindy Welker, 53, from Bloomsburg. “It also makes it a little bit fun because you have to go around every where. In 2011, I found a stand I never knew about even at a fair, so I hope it happens again all next week.”

Stands will stand across Bloomsburg until October 3, according to city officials.
