November 2011 voyage on the Ocean Nova to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, South Shetlands and the Antarctic Peninsula. 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!).

It was an extraordinary trip; Antarctica, a continent, is an environment of monochromatic beauty accented with remarkable lighting. All the shades of white, grey and black in the skies, clouds, ice, land and sea depict a calmness, a serenity, a cohesiveness that is almost hypnotic. Watching the landscape/seascape never grew old. See the MonoAntarctica attached photos. I\'ve now had the honor of visiting all of the earth\'s 7 continents.It is so important to care for each of them.

My husband & I accomplished our goal of having visited all 7 continents with our Crossing the Circle cruise in March 2011. We started the trip by crossing below the Antarctic Circle, continued with zodiac cruises through iceberg graveyards, saw lots of wildlife, went camping on the ice and did a polar plunge...twice! All in all, it was the trip of a lifetime! (We\'ve uploaded only a fraction of our photos from our Antarctic adventure...feel free to check out our Facebook page if you want to see more! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Antarctica-Or-Bust/148762288643)

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.

So in July of 2006 we started our year long adventure. After spending a couple of days in an Internet Cafe in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, and a flurry of emails back and forth to Jonathan of Adventure Life, we have booked our Antarctica Cruise.
