How did you keep from giving up?
It was always daytime, 24 hours a day. And it wasn’t as cold as in winter. The temperatures could drop down to -30°C or -40°C but in winter, they can go as low as -80°C.
How do you hang on when every day is just like the last, when the landscape is monotonous and you are really cold?
It is definitely not easy, but I used some little techniques that were often pretty basic. I would set myself very short-term goals. Sometimes it was like telling myself: “I will listen to two or three more songs before I eat a piece of chocolate.” I really tried to keep my mind as busy as possible to be able to keep on going and to avoid asking myself too many questions.
