Time is getting short, I leave for Argentina on Wednesday, and I'm up to my eyebrows in packing my gear for the big adventure to Antarctica. The M/S Expedition shown above is the ship Paula and I will be sailing on for 18 days, and the zodiacs will be our transportation for shore excursions onto the ice.
Reading more about the journey and shipboard facilities available in such a remote location, I now realize it will be difficult, maybe even impossible, to stay in touch here on the blog while I'm away. Internet connections are not always an option and when they are the cost is prohibitive. Uploading photos will definitely not be an option as, even when possible, it could cost about $30 a minute, yikes! Anyway dear readers, you know I'll do my best, and if I can post now and then I will........if not, please be patient and wait for my return in early February.
Off now to work on the packing - think warm, waterproof,
comfy and very casual. No dressing for dinner this
This quote is my mantra for the day...............I'm in
the subtracting stage, methinks those duffel bags are
getting mighty heavy!
