My Antarctica Video

I can’t believe that it’s been 9 months since I was in Antarctica.  I could have had a child in that period of time.  It really does feel like it happened just yesterday.  But at the same time, it almost feels as if it was a dream; and the truth was it was a dream.  I never expected to be clown away by Antarctica like I was.  Coming from a country of snow and ice I wasn’t sure that Antarctica had all too much to offer me, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.

The other day the good people at Peregrine Adventures asked me if I had any video from the trip I went on with them, which reminded me that I have a whole lot of material from Antarctica that I have yet to use. Thus, I put together a little video for them and thought I would share it with you guys as well. I call it “5 Things I Learned in Antarctica.” Enjoy.

  1. Gorgeous clips and photos bud! BTW, pretty sure I’ve danced to that song on more than one occasion, lol!

  2. I do my best to escape the snow and ice (as well), but I’d give just about anything to eventually make my way to AA at some point in my life.

    • @Samuel – I am the same… but after doing this trip I’m thinking of doing the Arctic at some point too!

  3. Brendan that’s fantastic! I generally prefer the warm, or at least mild climes, but seeing this, well, I’d love to be able to head here and see it for myself.

    Great photos – some harsh landscaped indeed.

    Have you been to Iceland?

  4. I’ve always been fascinated by polar exploration and this reaffirms why. Beautiful and serene but I didn’t expect the penguins’ bellies to be so dirty!

  6. Thanks for the video–I’m headed there in December for the first time and can’t wait. Any sage advice for me?

    • @NLM – hmmm… advice – Enjoy it! And sometimes don’t go off with the groups on land, find a spot on the beach sit down and let the wildlife, and antarctica come to you.

  7. Darn, I can’t view it because the rights for the song you’ve used haven’t been granted by GEMA.
