life on ice

Part 3/3. We reached our end goal. There is so much to say and at the same time there is so little to say about Antarctica. Life in Antarctica depends on ice. Loss of ice is a potential danger to the Antarctics wildlife population. Are we going to let that happen? I hope not. Oh, and, I wish I could show you all the photos.

Let’s make sure this penguin gets to keep his playground


Adélie penguins are the smallest and most widely distributed species of penguin in the Southern Ocean. And if you ask me, the funniest.

Chinstrap penguins give me happy vibes; it looks like they’re smiling!

Even if they are sleepy...

Or when they are arguing.

Penguin highway!

2°C. Yes, it’s cold



A few things: *I hope I could -even if it’s for 3 seconds- make you think about your actions in life and the impact it has on nature. *Oceanwide Expeditions provides lifechanging cruises *Huge thanks to Fjållråven for keeping me warm in the red jacket.

I try to minimize my use of plastic I have a vegan lifestyle and I would look forward to join the Tetiaroa Society to help preserve our beautiful world. I want to give back to nature. The delicate polar regions need us. #epiXtrip #antarctica
