Light is Right!

Saturday, 2 Dec 2017 | Views [199]

The light was absolutely right on our final full day in Antarctica today. Since I stayed up in the spa until 4:30 AM, I missed breakfast and didn’t wake up until after 9 AM when I heard an announcement “10 minutes until Group A has to be ... Read more >

Friday, 1 Dec 2017 | Views [209]

My Antarctic adventure would continue today as I’d visit two more very special places in the White Continent. We had an opportunity to make a third landing on the continent, visiting an abandoned Argentine base. I had trouble getting up this morning ... Read more >

Thursday, 30 Nov 2017 | Views [177]

As the morning announcement came Anja said we have two landings planned, including another continental landing. Following Elie’s words to “love the shit out of this journey” I pigged out at breakfast and then donned my gear for another ... Read more >

With two island landings under our belt already, I think we were all ready for a landing on the continent of Antarctica. The weather wasn’t all that great yesterday, and we were slated for an early start today. Somehow I woke up at 4:45 AM and ... Read more >

Landfall

We’d make our first Antarctic landing today…well, sort of. We didn’t touch down in continental Antarctica but we’d set foot on dry land for the first time since Saturday. After breakfast, our first stop of the day would be the ... Read more >

Closing in on the Ice

Monday, 27 Nov 2017 | Views [211]

The “Drake 'Monsta' Shake” continued its fury this morning, as I woke up from continuously broken sleep due to hard pounding of the waves. All outside decks were still closed as we walked to Deck 2 for breakfast this morning. Breakfast is ... Read more >


Drake "Monsta" Shake

Sunday, 26 Nov 2017 | Views [221]

As I awoke from my broken sleep this morning, it wasn’t either the “Drake Lake” or the “Drake Shake” it was the “Drake 'Monsta' Shake” (sounds like a cocktail made from an energy drink). The motion was so bad ... Read more >
