Packing for this trip has been a bit of a challenge as we need shoes for a cruise, clothes for the Polar region as well as not much for Thailand so we both have larger than normal suitcases. We are hoping the weather is favourable as we sail the Drake Passage to Antarctica and back again. This evening we fly to Buenos Aires arriving 4 hours before we leave, i.e. 4pm on Sunday. We have a few days to look around before boarding the ship, Zaandam on the 18th.

The temperature in the Falkland Islands, our second port of call, is about 8 degrees C. We are there on the 24th. Christmas day begins 7 continuous days at sea 3 of which will be sailing around the Antarctic ice looking at icebergs, penguins, whales and sealions.

I'll put up a map which roughly shows our voyage finishing in Santiago, Chile on the 9th January.

On the 10th January we fly from Buenos Aires to a small village, Phon Phisai, in Thailand via Frankfurt and Bangkok!! Crazy I know but Ian had already booked an art course there. I'll tell you more about that later.
