Antarctica #6 – Paddling, plunging and rocking

Dear friends, A recap on where we have got to on our Antarctic adventure - the last blog was about Red Rock Ridge and Stonington Island which was the furthest south we venture into waters at 68 degrees south. We then travelled north for two more stops - Horseshoe Island and Bourgeois Fjord, marked 4 [...]

Antarctica #5 – South of the Antarctic Circle

Dear friends, After our transverse of the Lemaire Channel and our zodiac zipping through the Iceberg Garden, we traveled further south overnight and all through the following morning.  We passed more and more huge icebergs and even witnessed a few calving. A chunk of this iceberg cracking of the left end, and creating a dramatic [...]

Ushuaia & Tierra del Fuego National Park

Dear Friends, In January, together with my cousin Sarah, I embarked on an exciting adventure, travelling from Auckland, NZ to Buenos Aires then south to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina before embarking on the 'Ocean Endeavour' for an expedition to the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.  A journey of a lifetime, and [...]

I’m not much of a cook, but …..

Dear friends, There is no doubt that the Thai kitchen is one of the world's most recognized and appreciated cuisines.

However, this has been rectified as last weekend I had the opportunity [...]

NZ Road Trip #2

Dear everyone, After our time in Christchurch and Akaroa, we travelled south from Christchurch, turning inland after an hour of so and headed west towards the MacKenzie country and the South Alps beyond that. Not so much traffic on the NZ roads ... The  rolling green hills around Geraldine and Fairlie slowly gave way to tussock-clad [...]
