My Antarctica Journal: Having crossed the Arctic Circle, Cancer, Capricorn, the Equator and International dateline, I was determined to complete the list by crossing the Antarctic Circle. I embarked on the Sea Spirit for their Southern Antarctica Expedition Cruise,
When my wife and I finally went to Antarctica in November on the Ocean Nova, a “Quark” ship that carried us and 62 other passengers, it was the highlight of the year, if not a lifetime (well not yet!).
