Antarctica was everything I thought it would be - wild, crazy and stunningly beautiful! What impressed me most were the unbelievably jagged coastlines and endless expanse of mountains on the Antarctic Peninsula. We saw Gentoo, Adelie and Chinstrap penguins in the thousands, a rogue juvenile Emperor penguin (!), Weddell Seals and both Minke and Humpback whales. I cannot wait to go through Daniel's pictures when we get home!
The trail system that overlooks our hotel has fantastic views of the Beagle Channel and if you look closely you can see the cruise ships at the pier that are bound for Antarctica!
The absolutely stunning Beagle Channel!
We spent the day glacier lake trekking in Tierra del Fuego and it was phenomenal!
This morning I enjoyed a hot stone massage at the Hypnoze Spa while looking down upon an Incan wall and water canal. Cusco is magical!
Tonight Daniel and I will be staying at the gorgeous Belmond Palacio Nazarenas Hotel. After a stressful work week and preparing for our upcoming trip we certainly are in need of a staycation!
