Antarctica - Drake Passage 28-30th December

Sunday, 28 Dec 2008 | Views [544] | Comments [1]

Our astonishing run of good luck held as we re-crossed a relatively calm Drake Passage. It always seemed to become roughest at mealtimes. We became experts at judging the swell so that we could catch our glasses. I don’t know how the waitress ... Read more >

Antarctica - Last landing - Port Lockroy
