"We are travelling through some of the most dramatic scenery seen anywhere on earth... in the cool clear Antarctic air, it seemed that we could see forever.
Imagine yourself at breakfast in the spacious, bright dining room of Fram. Looking out the large picture windows you watch three Humpback whales surface as the ship turns towards our first landing of the day, Cuverville Island. Lots of penguins porpoise in the water. Majestic mountains rise around you. Icebergs are everywhere. Could there be a better way to start your day? I think not.
You don't realize the difference a sunny day makes until you've had a few days of cloud. Here in Antarctica, on our adventure vacation of a lifetime, blue skies mean that we can see the snow and ice covered mountain peaks. It makes a huge difference. We are travelling through some of the most dramatic scenery seen anywhere on earth often much of it is obscured by clouds but today, in the cool clear Antarctic air, it seemed that we could see forever.
