We booked a 10 day cruise expedition through Pergrine Adventures to the Antarctic.
After traveling around the world,this was truly the most amazing experience I have ever had.
The bottom of the world is a sacred place - that much is obvious, especially to people like yourself who bother to experience it in a sensitive, non-intrusive way. The top of the world was like this once too.
Will mankind (eventually) find a way to ruin it. Or will he finally wake up. Having recently returned from the "top of the world" in Nepal and Tibet and seen the horrific impact of "progress", indulgent tourism and too many hedonistic foreign aid projects, I can't help feeling a chill. And it's not from an iceberg.
Sorry about that, I'll take my soapbox and go home. Your article got to me. There should be more of it.
Oh, and after all that I nearly forgot to ask. How much was the 10-day trip, and where did you board the ship?
