We made it off the ice and back to Christchurch on Saturday; only one day late. For Antarctica travel norms, that’s pretty good.
We are happy to be eating food of our own choice and drinking coffee that doesn’t taste like dirt (GSC has a contract to buy this Antarctica Blend coffee, which is NOT good).
Also, REALLY happy to be around real dairy. Not from a powder, but straight from the cow (and then through a processing plant that pasteurizes it and what not — but it least it skips the powderizing part).
It is sunny and warm(er) in Christchurch and we are off to explore.
I will continue posting as we travel across the world and eventually back to the States. And I will also post some Antarctic antics that I didn’t get time to post when we were on the Ice.
Thanks for reading!
