I am starting my journey towards Antarctica! I’ve just left San Jose, California, heading towards Houston, then a red-eye to Buenos Aires, and then off to Ushuaia - El Fin del Mundo - at the very end tip of Argentina by tomorrow night. Whew - it’s going to be a long couple days, but my expedition has officially begun
For a bit of background, I am a Wildlife Safari Manager for Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris (www.cheesemans.com) and I coordinate safaris all over the world for fellow wildlife enthusiasts. I have a background in biology, conservation, and natural resource management. I also have a background in hotels and cirques, so this job is a great fit for my interests and experiences. And occasionally, we actually get to join the safaris and expeditions we manage! This is my fourth Cheesemans’ safari in the 4 years I’ve worked here, the other three being an expedition to South Georgia Island in Oct 2015, Tanzania and Rwanda in Feb 2016, and the Galápagos Islands in Jul 2018 (see my other journal entries).
Thank you as always to my co-workers for making this trip possible. Thank you to Sarah for taking care of my cats. Thank you to my family for nurturing my sense of adventure and love of wildlife.
More to come... This is just a quick one I found on Google.
