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]
emma: trump has been spewing bigotry, sexism and xenophobia for the past year and now that he realizes that there aren't enough angry white males to win the presidency, now all of sudden he's concerned about blacks, latinos, women, gays (the coalition that elected Obama for 8 years) - OK THEN LOL it's good to see these people tell Don - The Con to shove it! with Hillary winning in a landslide and even trouncing trump in red states (up by 8 in Georgia), I can't wait for November to come to see Don - The Con concede to a woman - heaven forbid!
