Antarctica: Journey to the bottom of the word.

Antarctica: Journey to the bottom of the word.

The curious chicks would sometimes even come right up to you and sit in your lap!

WHO:Liz Carlsonof the young adventuress.

WHAT:  Liz Carlson is one of the Young Adventuress, she went to sub-Antarctic islands of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands plus some other paces.for Liz  It was the top of the bucket list for many years, till she went last month. Most tourist ships leave from Ushuaia in Argentina and involve sailing through some of the roughest seas on earth.It takes around two days to sail across the notorious Drake Passage to the Antarctic Peninsula, where storms and huge waves are the normal.It's worth every sea day because it's home to some of the most incredible wildlife on earth - like St Andrew's Bay it has more than half a million king penguins.Before arriving on the Antarctic Peninsula, she managed to visit the infamous Elephant Island, a desolate ice-covered mountainous island where Ernest Shackleton and his crew took refuge on their expedition in 1916, after losing their ship the Endurance in the ice on the Weddell Sea.Some of them break off from the huge glaciers hanging off the rocky mountains that make up the peninsula. There are no shortage of penguins to be found in Antarctica. In some places there are so many you have to be careful where you walk as to not step on a little one.when your not doing anything you really have time to observe the wildlife and it can look really good.

WHERE: Antarctica.

WHEN:last month till the 18th of the third 2018

WHY:In search of penguins and icebergs

IN MY OPINION: I think it would be cool to see all the beautiful animals and observe what they do.

It takes some sheer determination to sail the choppy waters to get here.

But those long sea days are worth views like this.
The sun illuminates the snow-capped mountains. My first view of Antarctica.

The sheer size of the icebergs will make your head spin.
Spoiler alert - the vast amounts of penguin poo everywhere in Antarctica is unavoidable.
