Having an absolute blast teaching partner acrobatics, juggling, and other group games to the remarkable National Geographic Staff while exploring a frozen bay of sea ice on the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Snow angels, poi, snowball juggling, and making new friends through movement at the end of the world.
High on life.

“Crazy snowy day here in Union Glacier. 59 runners from all over the planet are here to run the southernmost race on Earth. Still on schedule for a December 18 departure for Mt. Vinson.” -LS
I'm in Antarctica!
The iceberg floating by my window is the size of 4 city blocks and covered in Gentoo penguins. The horizon is dotted with humpback whale blows and glacier/ice shelf encased mountains that act as chameleons for the spectacular colors from the 4 hour sunsets and sunrises (currently have 21 hours of sunlight/day). We are currently on the the west side of the Antarctic Peninsula headed south through ice fields after having spent a day in the Weddell Sea.
Everything here is surreal, massive, and stark.
Penguins are pure nuggets of joy, playfulness, and inspiring clowns. We spent time among a colony of 40,000 of them yesterday and got to see some newborn chicks in the nests.
I'm taking lots of photos in the hope to share some of this magic. I wish I could share them as I go, but internet service here is really slow, so I'll be sharing them all when I get back home in a week.
Missing my friends and family back home.

Fresh from Antarctica! I’ve quickly developed a love affair with the Antarctic landscapes and wildlife. Of all the places I’ve been in the world, there is nothing like Antarctica. Thanks to the team at Muench Workshops for including me on this journey and for putting on a damn fine show at the bottom of the earth. Film will be coming soon, but this collection is a few of my iPhone images from this year’s expedition. Now, time to get home.
Throwback to 13th December 2013 and day 50 of the #ScottExpedition . By this point Tarka (left) and I (right) had already covered 636 miles (1,024km) unsupported and still hadn't reached our halfway point - the South Pole - where we we would turn to retrace our steps back to Ross Island at the coast of Antarctica. In total we dragged our sledges 1,801 miles (2,898km).
This stage of the expedition entailed crossing the Titan Dome, and spending nearly five weeks weeks on the barren, windswept Antarctic Plateau, at an elevation of more than 7,500' (2,286m). With high winds, extremely low ambient temperatures and high UV radiation, I would argue this is one of the harshest environments on the surface of the Earth. Our rations contained a high dose of vitamin D, as despite spending 10-12 hours outside each day, our skin often saw no daylight.

Exploring Antarctica just got a whole lot easier with the unveiling of the finalized Venturi Antarctica vehicle that will offer scientists unparalleled support as they brave the harsh conditions. The vehicle sports a zero-emissions design that will delicately traverse the landscape to prevent undue damage from being done as exploration and research is done. The unit is capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -58 degrees Fahrenheit and will travel at speeds up to 12.5mph for up to 28 miles with the integrated battery pack.
Что вы знаете о тюленеводстве?
Для начала нужна уютная льдинка.
Немного снежной перины и ярких лучей полярного солнца. Лёгкий антарктический бриз и свежесть летнего утра. А когда условия созданы, тюлени появятся сами.
Its not fun and games everyday in #Antarctica , its a true #expedition especially like this day when we were all sick and in bed for the whole day and the ship was rocking and rolling all over the place .. but it is all part of the #adventure ! 😍
Chinstrap penguins make nests with stones, as this is almost the only material they can find in their neighbourhood. They live close together in large colonies and stones are rare, they steal a lot from the others. This guy looks pretty proud of himself...
