\'\'Antarctica? Why?\'\' \'\'Antarctica? Wow!\'\' Those were the two most common responses from family, friends and colleagues when they learned I was off to the frozen continent for the holidays. I stepped on the Antarctic continent twice: my journey through ice, wind and stormy weather a glorious one. John Steinbeck said it best: \'\'. . .we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.\'\'

Bogota is a high altitude city with a 500+ year history involving Spain and Europe. Of interest is the fact that the Colombian government is the most friendly to the USA of all South American countries. We saw evidence of progress in many facets of the country. The flag represent their history and culture: yellow for the gold mined, blue for the two oceans (Pacific and Atlantic) that flank the country, and red, for the blood of the Martyrs fighting for Independence. We were so blessed to be a part of the Dubberly\'s life and church while in Bogota. May God continue to bless their ministry as they serve Him!

Awe -- \"an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful, or the like.\" Yep, that sums up my ~3 weeks in and around Antarctica. Always at the top of my must-do list, I decided to stop talking about it and start living it! The following journal recounts my incredible journey. I hope it inspires you to take that leap!

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?
