Links to external travel blogs

Thought I would start this thread in order to share the various Antarctica blogs and photo blogs I have found over the years. Feel free to add any you find - or links to your own.

Great blog from the perspective of a Quark employee - but a first timer to Antarctica.

Well dang, Perfectly Perth, I was just checking to see who'd linked to my site and see it's an Aussie ... just a coincidence that I'm contemplating a trip to Australia including a couple days in Melbourne!

Anyone thinking about Antarctica should stop thinking and just book it. An incredible experience and the MS Expedition is a fantastic ship and crew to take!

Explorer wannabe, thank you for those encouraging words, spending $50000plus makes me nervous but it is good to see your comments. Now I feel happy about parting with my money....... For all the right reasons..

No probs at all. Everyone is welcome to post external blog links here as they come across them. I had a lot more but lost all my favourite links in a computer changeover so I have been avidly searching to rebuild the list.

I'm off to Antarctica with Quark on the Sea Adventurer Dec 6-17, 2014!

I've been blogging about my experience so far here:

I'll be posting updates along the way including events and prep and everything in between!

Hope you like it

Our first Antarctica trip pre-dates my blogging days. I did write an extensive review on CruiseCritic and Fodor's as back in 2006-2007, finding small-ship trip reports was quite difficult. I also set up my photo galleries in a journal style, with captions providing the text.

This information can be accessed from this link: …blogspot.com/2007/01/antarctica-land-shaped…

That first trip took us to the Falklands and South Georgia, as well as the Peninsula. We are returning to Antarctica in January 2015, doing the M/V Ortelius Ross Sea expedition from Ushuaia to New Zealand. I hope to blog about the trip, though it will likely be after the fact.

eenusa, I haven't (yet) read your review, but your photographs are simply magnificent -- some of the best I've seen. Thank you for sharing them!
