Just Back From: Antarctica2013-11-01
Why we went: It is the last frontier, different from anywhere else in the world. It was the only continent we hadn’t visited.
Don’t miss: Riding in a Zodiac boat with an escort of five Minke whales swimming alongside and taking turns diving in front of the boat while Gentoo penguins jumped out of the water. Watching penguins bond, mate, hatch eggs, feed their young, and slip and slide across the ice. Large icebergs that look as if they had been hand carved. Camping overnight in our dug-out “ice coffins.”
