For 2.5 years of running the section “See and freeze” wherever I was looking for new amazing places on our planet. But, it seems, the most amazing thing all the time literally hung under my nose.
You are reading an article from the section “ See and Freeze my channel. Beautiful and interesting places of our fabulous planet, which you really want to visit.
The table at which I write my articles is located opposite the wall on which large political map of the world . It is located just above the table. So that if I lift my eyes and look directly, I will see her – Antarctica.

I first wanted to visit this continent 10 years ago. Then I thought that this was possible only as part of a research expedition. Now, to visit Antarctica, you only need the most expensive thing a person has besides life – time and money.
As they say, there is a mastercard for everything else. As they say, there is a mastercard for everything else.

But even this does not scare off the crowds of tourists who want to bring new sensations into their lives. And yes, Antarctica gives them.
And which, by the way, gives a trip to Antarctica , except for the “tick” that you are there was?

Firstly, the very realization that you have visited this almost deserted continent is worth a lot … You have to feel it. I can understand this feeling, something like a “ banged me when I sat in the Andes and looked down at Machu Picchu. Awareness of the significance of what is happening.

Third, animals. These are birds, whales, seals and, of course the penguins. Crowds of penguins! They say that the most favorable island for acquaintance with animals is South Georgia (South Atlantic). But there are so many of them everywhere. And they are friendly.

The way people live and work here is also amazing. Finding out such moments is also terribly interesting. There is also a British post office where you can send a postcard home. And no time zones.

Traveling on a cruise ship takes about three weeks (depends on the program) and more than 600 thousand rubles (this is only a cruise, not counting flights to the place of departure).
