ANTARCTICA | Thu, 9 Jul 2015 | By carlsbad_sven | Views [283]

Before I visited the white continent, I assumed the entire place would appear as a shadow land, filled with white, grays, and black. It would be the perfect habitat for black and white photography. I fancy myself a decent amateur photographer and thought ... Read more >

The most amazing place on earth

ANTARCTICA | Sat, 12 Jan 2013 | By jess_dan | Views [1974] | Comments [8]

Dear all,   I’m not going to be able to do regular updates on the blog as the internet on the boat is ridiculously expensive and you pay per megabyte, so I’m going to write regularly and then upload it all when we get back to Ushuaia ... Read more >

ANTARCTICA | Thu, 15 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1117]

I tried to prepare for our entry into the Drake last night but it turned out to be futile. I had hoped that I would find my sea legs like many of the other passengers, but entering the Drake a second time wasn’t any easier.... Read more >

ANTARCTICA | Thu, 15 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1118]

Today has been by far the toughest day yet, both physically and mentally. Jason and I woke at 5am in anticipation for a 5:30am landing, but when we sailed up to Bailey Head, the pounding surf was too strong for the zodiacs to land safely.... Read more >

ANTARCTICA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1172]

I had a shot of homemade Ukrainian vodka today and it burned! Our first landing destination was Vernadski Station on Galindez Island, part of the Argentine Islands. Vernadski was originally built by the British, and sold to the Ukranians ... Read more >

ANTARCTICA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1022]

After such an action packed day yesterday, I slept like a log and woke refreshed and energised for another big day of landings. Jason had given a slideshow presentation last night, at the request of our expedition ... Read more >

ANTARCTICA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1066]

What an exciting day! Our ship crossed the Antarctic circle sometime after midnight last night, and we entered the sheltered waters of Crystal Sound. How wonderful to feel healthy again! I rediscovered my appetite ... Read more >

Day 5, Still somewhere in the Drake, 5.3.2010

ANTARCTICA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [916]

The days of sea travel are starting to blend together, probably because I’ve spent most of my time either in sleep or in a nauseated stupor. My poor stomach’s calmed down today, which means I can eat a little, but I’m still ... Read more >

Day 4, Drake Passage, 4.3.2010

ANTARCTICA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1064]

Another night of rough seas, but thank goodness it calmed down a bit around noon. I only threw up twice this morning, yippee! By 2pm I was actually starting to feel hungry. All the motion sickness medication has left my ... Read more >

ANTARCTICA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1227]

Noon. I’ve been throwing up once every hour since 9am. Feeling absolutely miserable. We entered the Drake Passage at midnight last night. I thought I would be able to sleep through the crossing, but boy was I wrong.... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1126]

Ushuaia is situated at the southernmost tip of Argentine Patagonia. Originally and still serving as a port city, it sits at the foot of snow-capped mountains and overlooks the cold silvery waters of the Beagle Channel. We started early this ... Read more >

Day 1, Ushuaia, 1.3.2010

ARGENTINA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By annazhu | Views [1335]

My first impression of Jason was – ‘Wow, he’s a lot bigger than I thought he was.’ Not big as in tall or heavy, but solidly built, like a bear. I arrived at Buenos Aires’ Jorge Newbery airport an hour before our scheduled ... Read more >
