¡¡¡Pingüinos!!!

Standard

Okay, I know you’re all wondering how on earth a whole trip to Antarctica could be summed up without the mere mention of penguins, but don’t worry, it can’t. It’s impossible though, in one blog post, to describe the entire spectrum of beauty that is Antarctica: from the sobering, ferocious vastness of it all, to the heart-melting adorableness of nature’s awkwardest creature, so without further ado, here they are… PENGUINS! 😀 (among other amazing wildlife!)

  1. Wow…these pictures and the iceberg ones are so incredibly phenomenal. they take my breath away right here in Canada, nevermind actually being there. That must have been so amazing! Are there any domesticated penguins in any places you have been? Because having one as a pet would be pretty sweet…
