7 Mind-Blowing Facts About ANTARCTICA

ANTARCTICA IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE I'VE EVER BEEN! This tops any travel experience or moment in my entire life.

My fingers are shaking as I type this, because I still cannot get over what I have been experiencing. Or am I dreaming right now? Someone come here and pinch me.

An Expedition of a Lifetime to Antarctica

This 18-day Hurtigruten expedition has been one of the best (if not THE best) trips of my life.

Not only because of the fantastic places we've been so far (Uruguay, Argentina, Falkland Islands, Antarctica, and soon-to-be Chile…) but because of the incredible hospitality and education I've received on board the ship.

From the over-the-top friendly staff members, to the delicious 5-star dining and everything in between – I don't want this trip to end!!

The most unique part about Hurtigruten is the learning aspect – where we have daily science labs, lectures and seminars led by the highly skilled expedition team, who teach us about the nature, wildlife, history and environment of the places we are visiting. How cool is that?

I made this video because I want to show you how hospitality should be, everywhere in the world. Hurtigruten has set the bar really high.

Is Climate Change Real?

I've never realized the effect of climate change until coming to Antarctica — learning about the rapid ice melting, seeing the declining penguin species, and noticing several other negative impacts that higher temperatures bring to this environment and eco system.

The Western Antarctica Peninsula (in particular), where I've been the last 3 days, has warmed up more over the last 40 years than any other place on Earth. I sat down with John Chardine – one of the climate change experts & ornithologists on board our Hurtigruten expedition, and I asked him a few questions.

What are your thoughts on climate change? What actions can you take (or are taking) to overcome it?
