Time to tick continent seven off. Out of the blue our 'The World' friend contacted us six weeks out from the start of the Ross Sea Expedition to see if we could take the time off and go. YES! Hobart-Ross Sea-Lyttleton.
This isn't going to be three, that's for sure. Maybe three per day
Shortest night - sunset at just after midnight and then the sun rose at 1:30am
Our first sighting of penguins as we approached Cape Adare
so near and yet so far.... Too much broken up pack ice along the shoreline to visit the Borchgrevink and Scott Northern Party huts or take our first steps on the Antarctic continent. We got to withing about 50 metres before deciding it wasn't worth the risk to the zodiac, or us.
2004-Croatian Islands & Dubrovnik- found the Jadrolinija ferries were a great way to get around. Just walk on & get off at the island you wanted. In those days older ladies met the ferries & held up signs describing the virtues of their granny flats/rooms. Also there was the expectation to share the home made liquor of your hosts
Brasilia - from an architectural perspective everything we both hoped for and so much more. Two words - Oscar Niemeyer.
Maybe not what people were thinking of for a memorable structure his but his self-contained 'apartment towns' with open space under every building are now amongst the most sought after real estate in Brasilia. I LOVE CONCRETE!
