… facing one’s fear of sea sickness; my first successful return to Antarctica after my first challenging visit in 1996.
… being well prepared and not getting sick!!!
… blessed by a whole 8 days exploring this beautiful island loaded with thousands of king, gentoo, chinstrap penguins.
… witnessed a gigantic roaging elephant seal fighting to gain access to his harem of 40 females.
… being so touched about how the wildlife on this island which has no fear of humans anymore. (since it has been brought back to it’s natural state).
… accompanying a group of 7 Norwegian cross country skiers who skied across the island following Shakleton’s footsteps .
