Important reminder: embrace the unexpected, which adds to the legacy & excitement of your Antarctic expedition. There are no guarantees that we can achieve everything we set out to accomplish. A measure of flexibility is something all of us must bring to a voyage. There are nearly 200 recognised sites in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands, and on occasion the places mentioned above may need to be changed to others equally as interesting.
