Antarctica Photos

My parents have just got back from a four week trip via boat to Antarctica and various sub-antarctic islands. For some strange reason they forgot to take me with them, but they did bring me back a t-shirt and some photos.

For those who like photos of penguins, seals and lots of ice, I’ve attached a few below.

The ship in ice. On the journey it got further south than any other ship has ever managed thanks to a change in the ice flows.

More photos after the break.
