An unexpected side trip—10 days on a ship to the Antarctic

Letting you know I’ll be missing for almost 10 days.

Poor John and I have scored last-minute berths on the Antarctic-bound ship, Ocean Diamond. I’m thrilled and still rather gobsmacked by our good fortune. We booked yesterday and board in about 45 minutes.

There is supposed to be limited wifi on the ship, so I’ll try to check in regularly to let you know where we are, but the photos and details will have to wait until we return to Ushuaia, Argentina, on the morning of 9 December.

Depending on the weather, we will take two to three days crossing the Drake Passage, then the remaining time visiting the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. We may have up to three landings per day—or none. Fingers crossed for good weather all the way.

So drop back soon. Better still. Subscribe to the blog and you’ll know when I post. See you soon.

      I can hardly believe how lucky we’ve been on these travels. So glad I am able to share some of it with everyone here.

      Thanks Wendy. Those pastries were amazing. So were the goodies on the ship to the Antarctic.
