You’re here! You’ve found this blog because you know me and I told you about it, because you’re going to Antarctica and you are looking for trip reports, or as a result of a google search for yellow jackets gone horribly awry.

This site is where I blogged my prep and then day-by-day accounts of my trip to Antarctica in February 2015. The “START HERE” link at the top will take you to a list of posts by topic.

Or you can start at the very first post and read chronologically.

Or go straight to some of my favorite photos in the photo gallery, which cuts all the chatter and just shows some of the incredible scenery at the bottom of the world.

    Hi, just wondering if you want to return. I need a travel companion for Jan. 27-Feb.3, 2018 to go from Puntas Arenas and fly there. I am a young 60, and hoping to find a female roommate before July 25. Thanks

    Thank you so much for your blog. I am planning my Antarctica voyage this fall and I really appreciate both the wealth of information, and the many wonderful photographs.
