It’s not easy to visit Antarctica, one of the world’s cruellest and most desolate environments, but it sure is worth it. Watching great swarms of penguins huddling together, stumbling through blizzards or nose-diving into the bone-chilling water is just astonishing. The smoky grey fluff-ball chicks don’t waddle far from the safety of their parents, but visitors to Antarctica on a cruise can spot them without too much difficulty. And it’s not only penguins - great big albatrosses whirl through the iron sky, far seals sprawl on the water’s edge and whales breach the surf. Abercrombie & Kent offer a luxury 14-night Classic Antarctica Cruise from £10,300 per person, including full-board accommodation, excursions and domestic flights. [Photo: Pexels]
Tres: This is the game and we are all pawns. They move us across the game board and we don't even realize it because they have successfully distracted us with television, scandals, political bickering, race baiting, etcetera. Meanwhile, they are relaxing in the bacon wrapped shrimp club while you work, stress, raise children, pay bills. You have no idea of my skin color may be or what side of the aisle I lean, but you do know that we are more alike each other than we are any of them.
