Spots at the moment are open to return and be part of me on the journey of a lifetime to Antarctica – fill out the shape right here or under for extra particulars!
Precisely two months in the past, I boarded a flight to South America to start some fairly epic adventures (together with a visit to Antarctica), very harking back to my previous(?) life as a tRAveLblOgGEr. I usually fixate on that title – does it nonetheless match me? Did it ever match me? I’m not fairly certain.
As I attempted to snuggle into one other long-haul red-eye (uncommon for me now), I may really feel how a lot of a unique individual I had develop into. That woman who hungered for achievement, cash, recognition, alternative, and extra, extra, MORE, was gone. However who had changed her? Nicely, that’s the query.
Climbing onboard the Ocean Endeavour on my approach 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 folks in one among my favourite locations, I started to mirror on what I wished shifting ahead with my life — extra of this, sure please.
Up to now, I’ve undertaken round seven polar expeditions all over the world, together with to Antarctica a couple of instances, and I can simply say I’m obsessed. There’s such a factor referred to as the polar bug, and I’ve received it dangerous. Moreover, when you undertake any such journey, it’s addicting.
Happening 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 develop into polar ambassadors and advocates for the pure world. My information and expertise of Antarctica are huge and solely rising.
In reality, this latest 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 right down to host extra journeys. Let’s make it occur.
So in the event you’ve ever dreamed of occurring a visit to Antarctica, now’s your probability. I’ve received 5 extra voyages lined up for 2023 and 2024, with bookings now open (in the event you’re eager to study extra, please fill out my expression of curiosity kind on the finish of this put up to get the total scoop).
I’ve additionally received two longer voyages that embody South Georgia and the Falkland Islands/Las Malvinas (each of that are INSANE); for naturalists and chook nerds, nothing beats South Georgia.
And because of the entire bizarre journey fluctuations with COVID, a visit to Antarctica has by no means been cheaper with quite a lot 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 almost 50% off. I’m retaining my teams small and intimate, so spots are restricted.
I wish to say this can be a group journey for individuals who don’t all the time do group journey. We depart by ship from Argentina (most journeys to Antarctica go this route), and it’s the type 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’re 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 considering and reflecting whereas in Antarctica. In the event 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!
