“Men wanted for hazardous journey, small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, safe return doubtful, honor and recognition in case of success” Sir Ernest Shackleton (polar explorer)
Avid readers of my blog know that I am an Antarctica enthusiast. Ever since I read the story of Shackleton’s last expedition as a young man, I wanted to see and explore the continent of endless ice. Despite being still somewhat expensive, over the last few years prices of Antarctic expedition cruises have dropped. Therefore, I felt it was now time to turn this dream into reality and visit the Antarctic continent. My Russian friend Evgeny joined, eager as well to discover this distant land.
