Ship cruising through ice has lead to some of my favorite memories in Antarctica. Tomorrow I begin the long travel to the other side of the earth!
I’m excited for this trip. The emphasis on whales with a number of whale scientists on board should be interesting. Having sunset / sunrises and a more manageable time of day will be a plus. And, it looks like we may be able to make it below the Antarctica Circle, something I haven’t done since my first trip – and still my most memorable experience in the region. Sounds like we have some interesting people on board including a film crew from National Geographic working on a documentary on the region.
Before I leave tomorrow, I’m going to turn off comments since I won’t be around to manage the increasing amount of spam comments. Since you when I get back!!
