After eight years, we are returning to Antarctica. Our first expedition voyage was a roundtrip adventure out of Ushuaia that took us to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, and the Antarctic Peninsula (photos here). It was on this voyage that we were well and truly bitten by the “ice virus” that has seen us returning to polar regions year after year ;-)
This time our voyage to the great white continent will be a longer one — 30 days, give or take a day … crossing the international dateline complicates calculations ;-) Traveling by way of the Antarctic Peninsula and Ross Sea, we will disembark in New Zealand on February 10.
As satellite time is very expensive, this blog is now going into “radio silence” mode ;-)
See you in a month’s time!
