Walking

Every morning we have a wakeup call and I look through the porthole in my cabin out to sea, sometimes I see big white mountains, other times I see ice everywhere. Sometimes there are huge icebergs passing by, while other days only the vast empty sea is in front of me. I get very excited because I know that every day I will have another incredible adventure. After a satisfying breakfast, I get ready to disembark with my waterproof clothing, boots, gloves, hat and camera, I'm ready for another magical day.

Peninsula Wilhelmina Bay

No two days are alike, the weather dictates our itinerary, there's no need to plan ahead. Today we may land or we may not, the swell may be strong and we will do a Zodiac cruise instead. We may visit a research station or get close to a penguin colony, we may be surrounded by whales or we will marvel at the blue colours of deep ice; sometimes we will do something different like kayaking or camping.

South Georgia

Every day in Antarctica I discover that the world is still full of wonders, and I know that my life will never be the same after having experienced the magnificence and beauty of this wonderful place.
