Antarctica Chronicles

The story of how a father and daughter made it to the bottom of the world, Antarctica.  Starting from Ushuaia, Argentina we spent 2 days crossing the infamous Drake Passage and 8 days cruising around Antarctica.  And if you are wondering,  “What exactly do you do on the ship all day?” then read this series as I describe the various things to do on Antarctica – including kayking with penguins, and taking a polar plunge!  Read from the beginning as we start our journey leaving South Dakota full of anticipation.
