Antarctica Marathon 2014 Posts Next Week!

Antarctica Marathon 2014 Posts Next Week!

I finally got around to posting my write-up of Marathon Tour’s 2014 Antarctica Marathon, which includes the Buenos Aires portion of the trip and the 10 day cruise on OneOcean in Antarctica. The posts will start next Monday and will plan to run into August. It is so hot outside, I already forgot how cold it was in Antarctica. Below are the posts for the trip.

I hope everyone enjoys the writeup! Don’t worry, there are many penguin pictures to come (most of them didn’t come out great so I’m only posting a few). Disclaimer: The penguins were not injured in the picture taking process but from their condition, many of the cutest fluffiest penguins would not have survived into the winter.
