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]
Brad Boettcher: I'm a little nonplussed about these new laws concerning this. Seem kinda pointless frankly. Fact is that lady-men and men-ladies have been using whichever bathroom they happen to be suitably dressed for for as long as gender specific bathrooms have existed. In the absence of an attendee to check for outies and innies none of this is in the least bit enforceable anyways. I say we go back to the old system where nobody knew or cared or even thought about it.
