Preparing for an Antarctic expedition

Tampa, United States

The last two weeks have been filled with multiple phone calls to and from GAP Adventures, plus hours spent on Expedia.com. Finally all the details have been worked out, payments received, air and hotel reservations confirmed. I am so exited: I am going to Antarctica!

In two weeks I will be on a plane from Tampa, FL to Buenos Aires, Argentina and then on to the southern most city in the world: Ushuaia. I will spend five days exploring Tierra del Fuego National Park and visiting the glaciers near Ushuaia.

Here in Forida we have a lot of people, AKA snowbirds, from the east coast and Canada that come south for the winter. My trip gives a whole new meaning to "going south for the winter". I ran into a friend the other day who thought I was going to Key West, FL when I told her I was going as far south as I could go for Christmas. Hard as it is for us Floridians to believe, there is something south of Key West (and I don't mean Cuba)!
