I had the opportunity to travel to Antarctica with two of my favorite ladies. What a trip! The most beautiful and breathtaking place I have ever seen. Kayaking amongst icebergs, penguins, sea lions and even whales. How will I ever top this trip?

What a breathtakingly beautiful area Patagonia is! It is a land of contrasts: with flat arid plains around Puerto Madryn and Peninsula Valdez and its penguin colonies and Estancias, to the awesome glaciers and otherworldly rock formations of El Calafate near the central western border of Argentina. At its southernmost tip are the enormous craggy mountain ranges and tranquil shores, and wooded islands found along the Beagle Channel. Amazing vistas met us at every turn on our trek through this never-to-be-forgotten region of God\'s world!

First to Buenos Aires, then to Ushuaia at the bottom of the continent where we hiked and visited a penguin colony. Next to El Calafate where we stayed on a sheep ranch, visited a glacier in Glacier National Park, and went for a great horseback ride.

It began as a whim or perhaps more a dream as 3 long time colleagues acknowledged the effects of aging on their bodies but not on their spirits or sense of adventure. WE MUST do an adventure while we are all able and willing, they declared. So despite anxiety regarding care for their three aging mothers during this adventure, the dreaming and research began...... First, the date. Between work and family obligations, professional conferences, classes, and the holidays, we finally agreed upon a vacation schedule--well, almost. Janet was able to leave earlier so the first few days of this adventure are her solo travel experience. So, next, the destination. Where is the weather good for outdoor adventure in December? None of us had been to Argentina and Pagatonia beckoned to us. Carol Jo had previously traveled with Adventure Life. The pieces were falling into place! Monika at Adventure Life arranged a wonderful trip, taking into consideration my solo travel on the Custom Buenos Aires and the Falls Tour, and meeting up with Kathy and Carol Jo on the Awesome Argentina 8-Day Tour. Finally, the travel day arrived! This is our most excellent adventure.

A voyage for two heading for the White Continent aboard the Antarctic Dream - filled with birds, marine wildlife, interesting lectures, new friendships and many memorable moments. This was early in the summer season so all was pristine. The time spent in the Antarctic seems like a dream.
