Antarctica is once again on the horizon, a mid December departure this time, as always the preparation is part of the fun.
New lectures to give, new photo opportunities to look forward to, and the somewhat bizarre realization I need a tuxedo shirt, since my journey will mean a christmas and new year celebration on the white continent, why not look good for it. I mean, why not…how many times does this opportunity happen?
Except for me this is my fourth journey down and I will spend six weeks this time, my longest stint, doing three crossings with my first landings in the Falklands and South Georgia Island.
It never grows stale.
