First Impressions of ANTARCTICA! (our 7th continent)

We survived the Drake Passage and finally stepped foot on land in Antarctica. Nothing could prepare us for what we saw!!! Interested in booking your own trip to Antarctica? We highly recommend checking out Polar Latitudes –

Thanks to our friend Pablo, we got drone footage of this beautiful place! Check out his Instagram here:

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! So we extended our 1 year trip to now FOUR years 🙂 Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before 2020! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. 🙂

  1. “Listening to a relaxing sounds has a positive impact on our health, by helping us recover faster when we experience stress and through the reduction of stress hormone cortisol, to help us achieve a calm state or homeostasis.”

  2. I'm rewatching this for the I don't know how many times. My cat is a very talkative soul. She's been replying to the penguins 😂 every time they made a sound she makes the same sound. It's what she normally sounds like when she squeaks at me. But I wasn't talking, so everything the penguin made a sound and she replied I was crying with laughter 😂😂
    So I'm gonna take her to Antarctica me thinks, she can convene with nature and penguins 😂

  3. I so badly want to go, and apologies if you already addressed this in one of your videos but I haven't finished watching all of them as I am a new sub. I know you are both incredibly environmentally conscious, but I see so much bad stuff about taking trips to Antarctica and how much carbon footprint each person who takes this trip makes in one trip (4 tons) which is more than 1 person for an entire year. Did you hear anything on your travels that changed your mind and made you want to go?
