On the times when the weather conditions was awful, and on the long stretches of crossing the Drake Entry between Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica, I absorbed all of information that I might about this snow-and-ice-covered at some point land.

Our boat, the MV Ushuaia, was monitored by a full staff of researchers and teachers who were specialists in various significant subjects, from geography to ornithology. At the point when we were out on the high oceans with lots but idle time, these specialists held addresses on the verdure, fauna, history and geography of Antarctica, and I went to each and every one.

I asked the staff at the British base at Port Lockroy on Goudier Island how I could live and work on the island when we stopped there. Even though that wish was never realized, 11 years later, I still have vivid memories of Antarctica and long to return one day.

Such a costly journey would regularly be the outing that could only be described as epic, not a bring objective back. However, if you are willing to try your luck, you can find drastically discounted last-minute deals at the Ushuaia port a day or two before your departure. Due to the fact that most ships sell out months in advance, huge discounts have become rare in recent years. Still, I’m thinking about going back to Antarctica for more fun!
