My 7th continent - I can almost smell it!!

Posted by Nickola Hoffman on Sep 01, 2014 Add a Comment 0

Day 9 & 10 - Journey toward Elephant Island continues…and looking out for Point Wild. Still! It was a surprisingly a much better morning, the seating at breakfast was almost full compared to the day before. There were a couple of sore heads from the previous night’s Cowboys and Indians night…who'd have thought you could utilise a dance floor so well playing into the ships rocking and rolling, prompting the flow of which side we all ended up on next! Quite amusing!! A few Fin whales around these parts, Santiago told us a bit more about Penguins & Petrels and it starts to get cooler, there are lots more ice blocks appearing around the ship. We spend the next two whole days at sea and to be honest we are...

En Route to South Georgia

Posted by Nickola Hoffman on Sep 01, 2014 Add a Comment 0

Day 4 & 5 - No land in sight, weird, and 2 days of it! Eeekkk!! Over these next 2 days we ate well and learned lots....it was even calm enough to brave some time in the room they call 'the gym'! We heard more about those brave, and slightly mad, explorers and their stories, Mawson, Gerlache, Amundsen, McNish, Scott, Wild, Nordenskjold, d'Urville and of course the great Shackleton, whose attempt to make the first land crossing of the Antarctic continent in 1914, failed but became famous for its epic story of survival. Stories not just of him and his crew at sea, but of the final days of the rescue mission, trekking across South Georgia Island searching for a whaling station where he knew they would find help and being able to...

The end of the world, the beginning of everything ...

Wow ... where to begin?? Absolute sensory overload! Foreign to sea travel and its swells, the realisation you’re about to spend the next 16 days very close to 150 people you don't know with literally no escape is overwhelming.  However, this is soon dissipated by the passionate expedition leader and his team that we were about to meet. Their pure nature makes them some of the most enthusiastic, thoughtful, inspiring, knowledgeable and tireless people I have ever met.  They have the ability to amaze, cause you to indulge in the things you love, and create an incredible sense of excitement in things you had no idea were of interest to you.  They have you hooked and starving for more at every moment. Mesmerised by your surrounds, the sights, the...

Relaxing in Bali

Posted by Stacey Higgins on Aug 31, 2014 Add a Comment 0

Jetstar Flights and arrival into sunny Denpasar, Bali! We arrived at Melbourne airport early in the morning and queued up to check-in for our Jetstar flight to Denpasar, Bali.  The check in process was pretty seamless, and we then continued onto the Qantas Lounge for a barista coffee and breakfast! The flight from Melbourne to Denpasar is just over 5.5 hours.  We flew on the new Jetstar 787 Dreamliner and the economy class seating configuration is 3-3-3.  The Dreamliner boasts greater oxygen generation in the cabin to aid jet-lag.  This was not an issue for us on such a short flight, but I'm sure would be beneficial on a longer trip.  They also have mood lighting in the cabins, including economy class, to aid...

Challenging my perceptions

Posted by Vaughn Sexton on Aug 25, 2014 Add a Comment 0

I think I travel for life experiences and to challenge my perception of the world around me. Istanbul and Israel have been on my list for a few years and this year I managed to get them both done. FLIGHTS : I flew to Bangkok with Qantas on the A330 a product which is due for an upgrade and nothing more needs to be said. I then flew from Bangkok to Istanbul and Tel Aviv via Amman on Royal Jordanian (One World) and the product was of a higher standard than expected.  The aircraft where clean and modern and the terminal in Amman is new and very easy to use, a real plus after navigating the mega terminals of some Middle Eastern airlines it was refreshing. The lounge is good but not quite up to the offerings of...
