Our trip to the Antartica started in Ushuaia, the Southernmost city in the world. Being at the botom of the world did not make it immune from the bane of any city – traffic.
Our first stop was the Falkland Islands where the weather varied between rainy to sunny.
We saw the werid looking Rock Shag and the more common Albatross.
and we even got a taste of the penguins we came to Antarctica to see
In South Groegia we got more than a taste of penguins as hundreds of thousands of penguin occupied our landing sites.
Catherine put her bird whispering skills to good use as the penguins lined up to talk to her.
We saw what you expect to see in Africa, not Antarctica, a kill as the skuas took down a penguin that was wounded at sea (most likely by a leopard seal).
But the surviving penguins made for great photographic opportunities
