Imagine discovering a real-life Happy Feet?! After traveling to almost 200 destinations in over forty countries, there is some place high above my wish list — the southern most point of the globe: Antarctica. If penguins, killer whales and glaciers sound like your kind of happy place, the South Pole is calling your name. I know what you’re thinking… are there even flights to Antarctica? Can you visit Antarctica? Is that a real thing!? You can visit Antarctica.

Those of you who follow my blog closely know that I don’t often post trips that I haven’t experienced myself. This is an exception as it comes highly recommended by someone a trust: Lee Abbamonte the youngest American to go to every country in the world. Lee worked on Wall Street before giving it all up to travel, eventually starting a blog. A friend of mine with great taste in adventure travel, I know that if Lee says it’s a great trip… it’s a great trip.
It’s currently out of my budget, but I didn’t want to keep people who could experience this opportunity of a lifetime to miss out.
