If it has to be freezing outside, it might as well be uniquely
beautiful too. Add a sense of the magical and of the remote, and
you’ve got a good description of the Antarctic, a place that to many
world travelers is the ultimate trip destination. To the Antarctic on
the ship Aleksey Maryshev ventured NHBC members Denise and Sara,
who’ve been on many world trips together in the past four decades.
Their spectacular photos and lively narrative about their 3-week
adventure—filled with tales fascinating, amusing, or simply
unbelievable—will be the next best thing to going there yourself.
Skuas, icebergs, sheathbills, whales, petrels, albatross, glaciers, …
and penguins, penguins, penguins—seven species’ worth, some in
colonies of staggering size. From Tierra del Fuego, Ushuaia,
Argentina, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic
Peninsula on the continent itself—this is a trip you’ll never
forget. Social half-hour at 7:00, program begins at 7:30. For more
