    my antarctica pictures

    Salam all guppies.

    Sharing some pictures I took on my trip to Antarctica the last 2 weeks.

    I can happily die now, I have been on all continents.

            Just the pictures send a chill down my back! That tunnel in the iceberg looks absolutely amazing. How many days did you spend there? Nice pictures.

              Woah! Awesome pics. How about posting some more? (Preferabily of a place with warmer climate.) :-D

              BoSS, I didn't know World Citizen was your brother! (Or did I misread that?)

                Femme Fatale, the pictures don’t even closely describe the feelings. All of us on the expedition (about 50) were like a family by the 12th (last) day. Being on the zodiacs surrounded by icebergs, being inches away from a whale, is actually more chilling in retrospect.


                CareBear, the Antarctic summer was not half as bad as a Toronto winter. The day we went to the Whalers Bay, the sun was out. We dug up some thermal volcanic water and some people took a ‘polar plunge’. Also, we had a BBQ on the boat deck one day.

                There is no visa for Antarctica – this stamp was more for show

                    Oh wow, thats truly original and amazing. Why did you go on this expedition? Wasn't it absolutely freezing?

                          M, the expedition left from Ushuaia, Argentina – the southern most city in the world. I will open a separate thread on that part of South America. As for $$, I blew up my life savings on this, but it was worth every cent. I had wanted to go to Antarctica, ever since I went to Australia and NZ. That was my sixth continent.

                          Thanks Cat-woman. Though, one could see whales and penguins in South Africa too – but stepping on the continent was a awesome feeling – actually we got certificates for it. The temperature was tolerable – average zero celsius.

                          HSHTSA, indeed only a thousand or so lucky visitors get to visit Antarctica each year.

                          Thank you Daagh. I am reminiscing the journey every waking moment.
