Antarctica

We had the great good fortune to visit Antarctica late February 2008. This trip was significant for a couple of reasons; I took 2 months off work which gave me a taste for long holidays. We sailed from Ushuaia the Southern most city in Argentina (and the world!) and we spent some in Argentina before and after the trip to Antarctica which sealed our love for South America.

There were lots of highlights and fond memories, the wildlife and scenery is truly stunning. Drinking home made vodka at the Russian Research station, seeing a leopard seal scatter a flock of penguins’ as he  failed to get lunch and visiting the abandoned whaling station at Deception Island.

A simply great trip that we would love to revisit one day.
