On Sunday, we went to Antarctica. No, I’m not even joking. We booked ourselves on a scenic flight to Antarctica and it was wonderful.

This is our plane, an Airbus A380:

This is my seat:
A380 02
(We were in First class. It was pretty special.)

We spent four hours flying from Sydney to Antarctica, then four hours flying around over Antarctica, then a further four hours flying back to Sydney.  It was a long day but totally worth it.  The scenery was amazing.  Here, see for yourself.

    Inspiring vistas, hints to the beginning of time. I can’t help but wonder…Which shoes did you choose for this truly auspicious occasion?

    Ps. You know it’s me, right? 🙂

    Wow! I’m so envious! I want to go one day – on a boat – but this might do in the meantime. GREAT photos!

    I’m betting you wore Snow-Boots! LOL! Fabulous scenery. And most of it untouched by humans.

    This is totally freakin’ so cool it’s beyond words. Seriously. “Oh, Sunday we went to Antarctica.” I only wish I could say something rad like that one day, and not be lying or just high on Nyquil Cough Syrup.
