    He starts at the south pole and travels north 100 meters.
    Now is 100 meters from the South Pole. He then travels (still at 100 meters north of the South Pole) 100 meters to the West.
    Since he is still 100 meters north of the South Pole, when he goes 100 meters south,
    he ends up back where he started.
    With only three perpendicular movement u can reach back to your cabin if and only
    if your cabin have been situated on the pole!!
    So he sees a penguin!!!
