Spots are actually open to come back and be part of me on the journey of a lifetime to Antarctica – fill out the shape right here or beneath for extra particulars!
Precisely two months in the past, I boarded a flight to South America to begin some fairly epic adventures (together with a visit to Antarctica), very harking back to my previous(?) life as a tRAveLblOgGEr. I commonly fixate on that title – does it nonetheless match me? Did it ever match me? I’m not fairly positive.
As I attempted to snuggle into one other long-haul red-eye (uncommon for me now), I might really feel how a lot of a unique particular person I had grow to be. That woman who hungered for achievement, cash, recognition, alternative, and extra, extra, MORE, was gone. However who had changed her? Effectively, that’s the query.
Climbing onboard the Ocean Endeavour on my manner again to Antarctica, internet hosting my first group journey there, I discovered myself smiling a lot. With out wifi or pings, surrounded by among the coolest and like-minded individuals in one in all my favourite locations, I started to mirror on what I wished transferring ahead with my life — extra of this, sure please.
To this point, I’ve undertaken round seven polar expeditions all over the world, together with to Antarctica a number of occasions, and I can simply say I’m obsessed. There’s such a factor known as the polar bug, and I’ve acquired it unhealthy. Moreover, when you undertake one of these journey, it’s addicting.
Occurring one journey to Antarctica was by no means sufficient for me; I need to share this profound and particular place with the world, inspiring others to grow to be polar ambassadors and advocates for the pure world. My data and expertise of Antarctica are huge and solely rising.
In reality, this current return journey to Antarctica solidified my long-held secret dream of coaching as an expedition information, greater than a tour information. As quickly as we returned to land, I hit up Chimu and Intrepid to say I used to be all the way down to host extra journeys. Let’s make it occur.
So should you’ve ever dreamed of occurring a visit to Antarctica, now’s your probability. I’ve acquired 5 extra voyages lined up for 2023 and 2024, with bookings now open (should you’re eager to study extra, please fill out my expression of curiosity type on the finish of this submit to get the complete scoop).
I’ve additionally acquired two longer voyages that embody South Georgia and the Falkland Islands/Las Malvinas (each of that are INSANE); for naturalists and chicken nerds, nothing beats South Georgia.
And due to all the bizarre journey fluctuations with COVID, a visit to Antarctica has by no means been cheaper with plenty of last-mI’mte offers. I’m guiding two journeys on the finish of this season in March, one to the Antarctic Peninsula and the opposite to Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falklands. The spots are practically 50% off. I’m holding my teams small and intimate, so spots are restricted.
I prefer to say it is a group journey for individuals who don’t all the time do group journey. We go away by ship from Argentina (most journeys to Antarctica go this route), and it’s the form of journey you may’t actually do solo because you’re on an expedition ship.
My favourite sorts of locations are wild locations, locations the place the panorama makes you are feeling tiny and insignificant. These adventures are a great way to place your life into perspective and take into consideration what issues.
Personally, I did a lot deep pondering and reflecting whereas in Antarctica. In case you want a giant change in your life or escape from the mania that grips us all, this journey is for you.
Hope to see you there!
