Our first day / night in Argentina was mostly spent in Palermo soho.  After an overnight flight from Miami, we were quite exhausted upon arrival at 8am.  However, once we settled in to our hotel, we set back out to explore since we just had one night in this area.  We were close to cute shopping, really good restaurants, and a small open air market.  It was scorching hot and we were in much need of gelato by the end of the day.   At night we ate dinner at a jazz club and watched a great band perform.  Maybe one of my favorite meals; a roasted veggie, eggplant, and goat cheese flat bread.  Amazing.  We turned in early to hop on our next flight early in the morning.  We really liked this cute area and ended up returning to the market to buy some gifts when we got back to Buenos Aires! (after Antarctica)

More on Argentina soon! xox

Today I am wrapping up my photo journal from Antarctica with this last set of pictures from Danco Island.  Thanks for following along as I relieved these beautiful days here on my blog.  I’ve said this already, but words and pictures simply cannot describe the true beauty of this magical place.  I’m so grateful for this trip and for my sister who encouraged it.  I am so thankful my sister possesses the same spirit of adventure and that we can do things like this together.  It was literally the best trip ever.

All the quotes and sayings about traveling are so true…I especially love the words of Anthony Bourdain, “Travel isn’t always pretty.  It isn’t always comfortable.  Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart.  But that’s okay.  The journey changes you – it should change you.  It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body.  You take something with you…Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

Once you get a taste of the wonders this world holds, it becomes so hard to not explore (and when you’re not exploring, it’s hard to turn off the daydreams about future destinations).  When life presents the opportunity to adventure… just go.  Go see what the world has to offer.  Go see how other people live. Go do things that scare you…

“I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world…”

After going through all of my photos from Antarctica, I have to say I think this was my favorite area.  The ice formations, icebergs, and mountains were totally insane. The grey skies made for a lack of horizon when you gazed out across the water, really making it feel like we had reached the end of the world.  I’ll never be able to describe it and these pictures will never do this place justice.

During our cruise around Pleneau Island, we were pleasantly surprised to find a playful leopard seal.  He considered the idea of coming into the water from his iceberg napping spot for several minutes.  We watched in awe as he stared back at us, poked his head under the water, and stared at us some more.  After several minutes he slithered in the water and began canoodling with our little boat; swimming under it and around, back down, popping his head up right next to someone…  The water was crystal clear and we could watch his every move.  The animals of the Antarctic and truly amazing creatures.  To see animals in their own, pristine environment is an honor.  There sadly are not many places like this left.

“Otherworldly” is best word I can find to sum up this continent, it really is it’s own special little planet.
