It's a penguin's world
Getting to the White Continent isn't easy. Ask anyone. So after a 3 day sail from South Georgia Island with nonstop 30 foot waves and seasickness that had me begging for mercy, this little guy welcomed me into his world of solitude and stillness. What struck me most about this place is that it's truly a natural paradise, but one I wasn't expecting. I've seen animals, I've seen landscapes, I've seen what the planet can do. But here there are no paths drawn by humans, only animals. This is their world, not ours. This adorable penguin, who I'm quite certain has no twitter page nor tumblr account, showed me for the first time that we people, in our puffy red parkas, were the insignificant ones.
