Antarctic, 2005


This is an album of photos taken during our Antarctic trip in January 2005 aboard MS Andrea.

After many years of travelling the world this was our first encounter with the Antarctic and it was, unquestionably, the most amazing travel experience we have ever had.

We have since been back a second time and that trip, too, was a magical experience.
