Wow!!! I’m in Antarcticaaaaa!!!!!

Two days ago we were in Elephant Island, the historic island where Shackelton and his men were stranded. We saw Gentoo Penguins surfing on the icebergs. Yesterday we passed through Paradise Bay, home of towering vistas, mammoth glaciers, monumental aqua blue icebergs and Adelie Penguins waving from the shorelines. We were all just in AWE of the unique and spectacular beauty.

I have been in the Chilean, Norwegian, Alaskan and Greenland Fjords, yet nothing, I repeat NOTHING IS LIKE WHAT YOU SEE IN ANTARCTICA. WOW!!!!!!! And the wildlife!!! Whales everywhere, penguins swimming (or jumping happily as they do) in the water or on sandy or icy beaches, sea lions, elephant seals, albatross.

Today we came into Deception Island where we sailed (sailed!) into the active (ACTIVE!!) volcano which makes the waters warm and inviting enough that you can actually take a warm bath in these Antarctic waters!! And then the largest colony of Chinstrap penguins!!! Simply magnificent. Neither words nor pictures describe the incredible spectrum and majesty of what my Spanish friend, Emely and I have experienced on this incomparable and unforgettable trip.

    Hi Vivianna,

    Being with you and Emile in Antarctica was a great memory…wish we could repeat it!! And, YES, it IS soooo much better than Alaska or even the Norway Fiords.

    Miss you and wish you to always continue your adventure on the wild side.

    Love you,

    Bob and Lainie
