The magic that is Antarctica
by pam bennett
An experience never to be forgotten. From boarding the ship in Ushuaia to disembarking 20 days later, this was a myriad of amazing scenery, stunning wildlife, and great camaraderie. The expedition team are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, but look out if you stray from the chosen path..... you WILL be told off! Conservation and protection are their mantra, and we all left more educated than when we arrived. Even an ignorant "point and shoot" person like myself became enthused when Petrels or Fulmars appeared! The food was just outstanding, with full 3 course meals at every mealtime. Lectures were on the whole quite interesting, but sometimes difficult to understand from a layperson's view! All in all an amazing trip, which I would love to do again in a different month.
