Antarctica (the adventure)

You wouldn’t be very wrong if you thought Antarctica was just ice and penguins. But actually you have to think of it more like ICE! and PENGUINS!!!! because that’s pretty much how everyone feels on their first sight of this exotic land. We could barely hold ourselves still […]

Antarctica (the background)

More adventures with Ammon and Sasha: I think everyone, even non-travelers have some preconceived notion of Antarctica. Few places can inspire the same degree of awe and dread or have so many stories of tragedy and heroism during its early exploration. It is the coldest, driest, windiest and […]

Suriname and Guyana

Ammon and Sasha’s adventure continues: We flew from Trinidad to Suriname to finally hit the mainland and officially start the South American portion of the trip. The initial plan was to see what the Guianas are all about and when ready continue south into the Brazilian Amazon. Of […]
