We just concluded our biggest adventure by far –- an amazing expedition to Antarctica with National Geographic Expeditions.
We were deeply moved by the pristine beauty of the White Continent and were in awe of its rich wildlife.
We hiked in glaciered mountains, walked on sea ice, cruised and kayaked on breathtaking bays and harbors.
We were delighted by tons of nesting penguins, seals sunbathing on icebergs and many birds hovering in cold sky; and we were in shock and awe as we witnessed group of killer whales attacking then feeding on a poor minke whale.
We saw fascinating relics of old whaling industry and military/research stations.
And yes, we got a bit shaken by the Drake Passage, but it was part of the deal.
We felt privileged to attend lectures and workshops from amazing National Geographic photographers, naturalists, and scientists. We learned a lot from them, and were profoundly inspired by their great works and deep passion for what they do.
We didn’t want it to end……
We’re very grateful for the incredible experience, which we would love to share with you in more details in the next several posts. For now, let us share with you some of the snapshots from the expedition.
We hope you enjoyed the preview of our Antarctic expedition. Our adventure continues in Easter Island, the world’s most remote inhabited island. It’s another wonderful journey that we look forward to share with you.
