Antarctica Through The Eyes of a 20-Year-Old

Antarctica!!!

Antarctica was such an adventure. I really didn’t know what was in store for me when I got on the ship in Ushuaia but it was more then I could have ever imagined.

I went kayaking about 12 miles a day, hiking on various islands and did the ultimate challenge that you can possibly do in the Antarctic.. THE POLAR PLUGE!!!! I met some amazing people on the ship and had a wonderful time. Here are some pictures!

19 Days Until I Head To My Final Continent

In exactly 19 days from today I will be heading to Antarctica, my final continent!!!

I will be flying into Ushuaia, Argentina. I’ll have a full day there to enjoy the city which I will be navigating myself. After I embark on the ship I will be sailing through the Beagle Channel and the Drake Passage. From there I will be viewing the most unique wildlife in the world through the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands. Next I’ll go through penguin colonies at the Polar Circle Crossing and continue around the Arctic circle. During this experience I will go camping and kayaking!
