The day has finally come! A whole year's worth of excitement and planning and it's finally here. Today is the day I depart for Ushuaia in Argentina, to meet up with 79 incredible women from 28 different countries, to share a 3-week trip of a lifetime to Antarctica. I hope I've remembered to pack everything...!
It feels surreal, It still doesn't feel like reality. But I don't know when it will feel real - when I see my first iceberg? or Penguin? Or maybe not even until after the trip?
I've got a long journey ahead - Sydney to Santiago, Chile, then to Buenos Aires, Argentina for an overnight layover, then onto Ushuaia, Argentina the following day. But there was a few of us on the flights - at different stages of the journey, so it will be good to have some travel buddies.
I was absolutely buzzing this morning. That kind of giddy excitement. I didn't really know what I was in for, and didn't really have any expectations, all I knew was it would be an incredible adventure.
