I know some universities and tour companies of trips down there...Maybe someone in the service flew down for a bit? I dont know why but I have always had a weird fascination with wanting to go to Antarctica...for as long as I can remember. Just today I was looking through some photo albums of people who have gone there on cruise ships through some tour groups and it just looks like a BLAST! What amazing landscape... So can anyone share any experiences? See look at this photo...it was the first one that came up in an image search and it just happened to have been taken on my birthday. A sign?
