IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 5

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 4

Though the day started out a bit greybird, it looked as though the sun would burn through the clouds as we shuttled to the shore of Livingston Island to ski yesterday.

Still in the Drake Passage

Cape petrals, one of the many seabirds following the ship across the Drake Passage. Seabirds only land on terra firma to lay their eggs or mate. Today is our second full day on the ship crossing the Drake Passage. The seas are much mellower and I think nearly everyone is feeling better, myself included. Though […]

Heading towards the Clipper Adventurer. Wow, walking out onto the pier yesterday afternoon to board the ship, the energy was amazing and I could literally feel the blood coursing through my veins with excitement. My body was shaking with nervous energy and I think the everyone was feeding off of each other, waiting for the […]
