¡¡¡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!)
