Arctic travel requires an open mind.
Antarctica is known as the white continent and the wildlife is mostly black and white as an adaption for predator avoidance.
The Ban on heavy fuel oil in Antarctica is good for the environment and hasn’t really impacted small ship expedition cruising in the region.
