Win a Trip to Antarctica!!!

If you’ve been following this blog long enough, you’ll know that two years ago I went on the trip of a lifetime to Antarctica!  The so-called 7th continent still is, and likely always will be, the most visually stunning place I’ve ever been.  You might think of snow and ice when thinking about Antarctica. but the truth is there is also so much life to it.  Seabirds scan the skies, penguins waddle along the beaches and porpoise through the waters, seals pose on icebergs, and whales come to the surface for air.  Meanwhile, there is such a raw power to the area.  It’s truly majestic.


Today, I’m excited to tell you that the sexy people at Gecko’s Adventures are giving away a trip to that incredible island of ice.

Tell us About the Contest!

The Good News

Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those contests where we make you dance like a bear in a tutu, there’s no elaborate video you need to make, nor do you have to write an essay about why you deserve it.  All you have to do is head over to the facebook page of Gecko’s Adventure, like their page and fill out the form.

The Bad News

The bad news is that the contest is only available to citizens of the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

  1. Ah, well that sucks. I got all excited and bounced on over here in two seconds flat only to find out that I’m ineligible to enter.

    I live in South Africa which, I might add, is much closer to Antarctica than the other three countries mentioned. Haha. 🙂

  2. Having a Facebook account may be considered on par with dancing like a bear in a tutu. It may be worse if ‘in a tutu’ refers only to the bear watering the tutu and not the mocking dancer.

  3. I’ve said it many times, but Antarctica is my #1 bucket list destination. I will hopefully save up for it within the next few years. BTW what were the costs? Is there a cheap way to do it?
    Sadly, I’m American and dont qualify :(.

    • Julio, It’s amazing so it’s worth the high costs. The cheapest way to do it is to get to Ushuaia, Argentina and try to get on a last minute trip. However, you’re pushing your luck doing that and may have to hang out in Ushuaia for a while before getting on a trip to Antarctica. Go with Gecko’s on a set trip and you’ll get about as good a deal as you’ll find.
