I am safely back on ground in Ushuaia, Argentina, staying at my lovely friend Alícia’s house. I’ve mostly regained my land legs, but have had the occasional reminder of the ocean’s sway hit me in the shower and while laying in bed. I’m still processing the incredible voyage I just undertook, and have a myriad of emotions and thoughts to sift through. It was a very interesting trip - not exactly what I was expecting, but then again I didn’t really have anything planned. It was challenging in a lot of ways, much too short, yet overall impressive and awe-inspiring. I’ve seen a lot of glaciers, snow and icebergs in my day, but nothing quite like this. And the penguins! Oh my, how wonderful they truly are. This route  only put us in line with the gentoo, adelie, and chinstrap colonies. Hopefully I will get another experience sometime in my life to see other species, such as the king, macaroni, and emperor. 

  PROOF! Not quite the south pole (which lies at 66°33’S) but pretty damn close!

For those of you who are waiting to see all of my penguin and iceberg pictures, you will have to wait a bit longer. Unfortunately, there were some complications when transferring my photos on the boat, and I am having issues viewing/sharing my pictures. Not gonna lie, I had a bit of a panic attack about this but I’m feeling better after getting an incredible massage and healing bodywork done yesterday.

  STAY TUNED - files WILL be recovered...🤞🏻

I have decided to cut my trip short, so I can recover the files as well as finish the year strong with a few jobs in NYC. I will be heading back to Brooklyn next week - I’ve already booked a few days and am {of course} looking to fill up my calendar as much as possible. Soooo, photo friends, if you hear of any work in these next coming weeks, holla at your girl! 🙌🏻

Por favor, mi amorssssss ❤️❤️❤️

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the few images/videos I have from my phone. Rest assured, there are a lot of amazing stories, hilarious moments, some treacherous waves (DRAKE SHAKE!!!), and a few snafus to be shared. This is what makes an incredible expedition! A journey to remember indeed!

STAY TUNED!!! 

All I know is I put my feet on the 7th continent, and now have a taste for more.

So I’m gonna apply for a job on an expedition crew next year.
