When I looked at the calendar in preparation of this week’s travel tuesday, I couldn’t believe that it is already July 31st! Where does the time go? So, to celebrate this last day in the 7th month of the year that I went to my 7th continent, I present to you: “Travel Tuesday :: Continents
I don’t know exactly how I missed the autotune of the Kristen Bell moment on Ellen. But I did. Until this afternoon when my awesome photographer friend Jenn Stark tweeted about it. And then I made this. I couldn’t help myself. See the original moment here and the original autotune here.
Ok friends, here is the promised post on how to get a last minute trip to Antarctica. Because getting to Antarctica is expensive. Really expensive. This year (2012) January and early February rates ranged from $6,000 to $9,000 per person for the cheapest room on the boat (often a triple or quad). Late February and
Wow. This is it folks, the very last day of Antarctica trip recaps :'( I hope you’ve enjoyed this week, I know it’s been heavy on both the pictures and the crazy, but I hope you’ve had as much fun as me! And, don’t worry, we’re not through with Antarctica yet. For Travel Tuesday next
We awoke on the morning of Day 6 to our first inclement weather. Who goes to Antarctica for 5 days before having inclement weather? Us, that’s who! The winds were gusting at up to 30-35 knots, which makes it very unsafe for the zodiacs to land. Unfortunately, this meant that our scheduled morning landing was
Happy Valentine’s Day! Well, with that out of the way, let me get on with it! This Travel Tuesday is going to be more along the lines of my recent Antarctica posts (see Days 1-3 and Day 4) than a regular Travel Tuesday post. But, since it is Tuesday and I’m talking about travel, this
The highlights of our trip to Antarctica included, most certainly, Days 4 and 5. I’ve already told you a bit about Day 4. If you need a bit of a reminder (or if you need to fill your heart with joy), here you go: But let’s go back, and start from the beginning of the
After four days of letting it sit, I think I finally have the words. But before I begin, here is a shot of (very excited me) at my first “penguin” encounter! At 4:00pm on Saturday, January 28, 2012 the hubs and I arrived at the docks in Ushuaia, Argentina to being our journey to Antarctica.
I’ve written and re-written the intro to this post. I actually drafted most of this post on the flight home from Ushuaia on Tuesday evening but then Wednesday and Thursday happened. You know when you do something really awesome, be it a trip, a conference, a workshop, a wedding or something else, and then you
We got back from Antarctica this morning, and I don’t yet have the words to describe it. Our trip was everything that I hoped it would be, and so much more. I’ve got hundreds of pictures (culled from thousands), thousands of words of stories, and all sorts of advice about how to do it on
Today is my one year blogiversary. Today I’m getting on a boat to go to Antarctica. Who would have thought that exactly one year after writing this post about my wanderlust, I’d be going to the seventh continent? Don’t worry though. You won’t be lonely! I’ve got a handful of pre-programmed posts scheduled for while
