Nov 27, 2022 12:00 AM 14th flight - end of the epic journey...

14th flight - end of the epic journey... My flight from Lisbon to Milan Bergamo was delayed 40 minutes so I was afraid if I will be running to the security control and the gate. But the situation was not so bad due to the new shotcut offered in Bergamo to the passengers in transit. If you are transiting from EU country to other EU country you go now to the gate without any control - just take the stairs right side once you will enter terminal building!
My flight to Gdansk (14th flight of this journey) was on time. But once they closed the plane doors we were waiting more than 30 minutes for the permit to start. Shame on you BGY! I landed in cold Gdansk at midnight. My epic voyage to the Pacific and Antarctica is happily completed! It was one of the most impressive journeys of my life. It is time to the next one! :)

Nov 26, 2022 12:00 AM Stopover Lisbon

Stopover Lisbon After 10-hours transatlantic flight I landed in Lisbon. The plane was full and the meals (sorry) weak... But we landed on time. Here is still sunny and spring temperatures in Lisbon. I am waiting for the low-cost connection flight to Milan Bergamo. Low-cost flights depart from Terminal 2, accessible by free shuttle bus from T1 and subway station. I am closer and closer to you, dear friends...

Nov 25, 2022 12:00 AM Buenos Aires - 34 deg. Celsius!

Buenos Aires - 34 deg. Celsius! It was 34 deg. Celsius yesterday in the afternoon when I landed here. What a change after frosty Antarctica! I had to spend the night in Buenos before the next flight to Brazil, I booked via a bed in the Ruda Hostel located only 4 kms from Newbery airport. But sorry, I do not want to walk in such a heat! How to get there. Taxi... Argentina suffers from the enormous inflation. Dollar is the king, accepted everywhere with love, taxis are cheap for the foreigners... But the drivers are not always honest. They charge from the stranger as much as twice more.... To avoid this authorities installed in the airport taxi stop link to the apps calculating honest fare. Just install apps, insert your address and go!
Ruda Hostel is friendly place located between normal houses. Staff is flexible and helpful. I slept well and in the morning prepared my breakfast in the empty guest kitchen. Now I am already in the airport (receptionist arranged cheap taxi - just 4 dollars) waiting for my flight to Sao Paulo. Everything goes well!

Nov 24, 2022 12:00 AM Happy return from Antarctica

Happy return from Antarctica The goal was achieved despite strong winds on Weddell Sea and storms. I saw emperor penguins in their natural habitat. So far from civilized world! Last two days were very tiring because there were heavy storm in the Drake Passage.
This morning I disembarked our brave ship in Ushuaia: tired but happy!

Nov 22, 2022 12:00 AM Deception Island

Deception Island This was my second visit, after years on this interesting island, where ships sail into caldera of former volcano. There are not many animals here birds, few penguins including chinstrap and fur seal) but the landscape is great. Some travellers from our ship were bathing in the hots springs...

Nov 21, 2022 12:00 AM Penguins from Hope Bay

Penguins from Hope Bay Today the show was falling when we were landing with our zodiacs in the Hope Bay on Antarctic Peninsula. Adelie and gentoo penguins were waiting for us here. For many of my companions it was their first, long-waited step on the Anctarctic Continent. The penguins were very funny, but it was not so pleasant to photograph them in the falling snow. "Esperanza" Scientific Base was visible in the distance, but all bases during the season 22/23 do not accept visitors due to the pandemic of Covid...

Nov 20, 2022 12:00 AM Only the icebergs...

Only the icebergs... Strong wind! Enjoying the great views of the floating icebergs we are trying to find the calm place to land. Unfortunately the sea is too rough to land even in the zodiacs.

Nov 19, 2022 12:00 AM The wind is too strong to fly!

The wind is too strong to fly! Return from the land yesterday was very emotional: we were waiting in the tent near the helicopter few hours for the better conditions to fly.
Second landing at Snow Hill was planned for today, but the wind was to strong for helicopters. The power of wind was increasing so capitan decided to escape from the sea ice area. Everybody on the ship keeps the fantastic memories of yesterday... Emperor penguins were unforgettable!

Nov 18, 2022 12:00 AM Emperor penguins are waiting!

Emperor penguins are waiting! Yesterday our little ship entered Weddell Sea. Today in the morning the sea was shining and the wind was calm enough to fly by helicopter to the emperor penguins colony on Snow Hill. What a day! We landed on the snow field and then walked to the colony. aroud a thousand of fancy penguins were waiting there. Some of them were walking slowly to the distant sea for the food. I am so happy - the dream came true!

Nov 17, 2022 12:00 AM Adelie Penguins on Devil Island

Adelie Penguins on Devil Island We survived two-days stormy passage through Drake Strait and today we landed with our zodiacs on Devil Island.
I took us about half an hour of walk to get to the other side of the island to the big colony of the Adelie penguins. They are nesting on the slope - thousands of them! I took some good pictures...
