Today is Day 3 of my Lindblad/National Geographic Expedition on the Explorer to Antarctica! After a few days in Buenos Aires, which I will post about, a day traveling to Ushiaya, Argentina (aka The end of the world), and a day at sea watching whales and seabirds, I woke this morning to snow and Fin and Humpback Whales off the bow. As we watched the whales, I saw my very first iceberg. I am overwhelmed by the beauty of this extreme landscape, and humbled by its scope. Just some first impressions!
- Icebergs! The floating ice is absolutely beautiful.
- Extreme landscape!
- Chinstrap Penguins!
- Gentoo Penguins.
- Elephant Seals!
These are my first five day one incredible reasons I already love Antarctica!
