Was I really in Antarctica? It was a bit difficult to compute. The weather was better than I ever could've expected for being in such an extreme environment. The water was still and clear, providing beautiful reflections. This is polar paradise.
As one of only two harbors used by cruise ships to stop on the continent, it was a giddy feeling of delight to be on the white continent and be treated to such astounding views.
