This picture was taken in 2014 in the Antarctica peninsula with @oceanwideexp and @grandnordgrandlarge on board the M/V Plancius, 5 years later I will be back on that same ship, but this time on the opposite side of our Planet, for a 2nd trip to Svalbard, in July 2019 . . . #mvplancius #travelphotography #travelmore #nature #natureonly #naturelovers #naturephotography #earthmood #landscapephotography #yourshotphotographer  #beautifuldestinations #exploretheworld #instaworldlovers #popularpic #picoftheday #wonderful_places #majestic_earth #travelgram #landscape

Nr. 23 - S65°38’28”, W57°53’52” | “It is in our nature to explore, to reach out into the unknown. The only true failure would be not to explore at all.” | Weddell Sea – Antarctica After my own expedition to the Weddell Sea on board of m.v. Plancius – navigating through the pack-ice, I have even more respect for Ernest Shackleton and his crew who became trapped in the ice of the Weddell Sea but nevertheless managed to survive. Early in 1915, Shackleton’s 'Endurance' got stuck in pack-ice, got crushed and sank. By then Shackleton's crew had already abandoned the ship to live on the floating ice. In April 1916, they set off in three small boats, eventually reaching Elephant Island. Taking five crew members, Shackleton went to find help. In a small boat, the six men spent 16 days crossing 1,300 km of ocean to reach South Georgia and then trekked across the island to a whaling station. The remaining men from the 'Endurance' were rescued in August 1916. Not one member of the expedition died. * * * * * * * #7c80d #travel #antarctica #expedition #shackleton #endurance #respect #weddellsea #ice #survival #traveling #shackleton #truestories #history #moon #fullmoon #bluesky #sunset #mvplancius #oceanwideexpeditions #floating #canon #photography #landscapephotography #sailing #nevergiveup #keepexploring

Il y a un mois j'embarquais à bord de ce bateau, le M/V Plancius au port d'Ushuaia, la ville du bout du monde, ou du moins du continent américain... 🚢 Destination : le vrai bout du monde, le plus grand désert de glace au monde, l'Antarctique, et plus précisément sa péninsule ! 😀🙌🙏 . Ce bateau a été notre maison pour 10 jours et 11 nuits, où chacun•e a pris ses habitudes, bercé•e par les annonces radios de l'équipage pour le réveil du matin, les infos sur la météo, l'ouverture de la salle à manger, le démarrage des présentations sur des thématiques liées au continent blanc, le programme de la journée et les sorties sur le continent ou en zodiac... . Grâce à ce bateau et à son équipage, j'ai eu la chance de vivre ce rêve, telle une aventure magique, indescriptible, irréelle... Quand j'y repense aujourd'hui, j'ai encore parfois du mal à réaliser que j'ai vraiment vécu ce voyage, que j'ai vraiment vu tous ces animaux, que j'ai vraiment admiré des paysages de neige et de glace sous une lumière magique, parfois nuageuse et mystérieuse, parfois ensoleillée et douce... . L'expérience de voyage la plus extraordinaire de ma vie ! 😍😁 . Un voyage où j'ai pu découvrir des lieux comme Niko Bay, Stony Point, Danco Island, Enterprise Island, Portal Point, Cierva Cove, Brown Bluff, Antarctica Sound, Weddel Sea, Half Moon Island, South Shetland Islands... . Un voyage où j'ai appris les différentes espèces animales que l'on peut croiser dans cette région, comment et par qui elle a été découverte, comment et où les scientifiques travaillent pour mieux comprendre le continent et les différentes problématiques environnementales... . Un voyage où j'ai rencontré des guides et scientifiques passionné•e•s de leur travail, du continent et des animaux que l'on peut y étudier... Et l'idée de m'inscrire à un programme pour travailler dans une des bases m'a même traversé l'esprit 😅 . @oceanwideexp thank you so much for this amazing and unforgettable journey! . #antartica #antarticpeninsula #antarticaambassador #mvplancius #oceanwideexpeditions #ice #icebergs #thewhitecontinent #adventure #travels #voyages #lifeisanadventure #dream #liveyourdreams #voirdequoiestfaitlemonde #seetheworld

This was our home for the week! The MV Plancius is 293 feet long and 47 feet wide and can comfortably hold 116 passengers. It was originally a oceanic research vessel for the Royal Dutch Navy under the original name of the Hr. Ms. Tydeman in 1976, but was updated and renamed in 2004. #icebery #Antarctica #plancius #mvplancius #oceanwideexpeditions #polarcircle

1ère série de photos «made in Antartica» 😊❄☁🐧 (faites défiler!) . Après une soirée dans le canal de Beagle, deux jours et deux nuits de navigation à travers le passage de Drake, réputé très «mouvementé», nous sommes enfin prêt•e•s et très impatient•e•s de nous dégourdir un peu les jambes et de découvrir notre 1er bout de ce bout du monde à Niko Bay, qui accueille des colonies de pingouins gentoos en anglais, ou manchots papous en français 😍🐧 . En Antarctique, le blanc est couleur, le gris des nuages et du brouillard donne une atmosphère de mystère à ce lieu magique, la neige moelleuse rend le moment encore plus doux... . J'ai été parcourue de frissons presque tout le long de cette 1ère balade, pas vraiment à cause du froid, j'étais quand même bien emmitouflée, mais surtout à cause de l'émotion de rencontrer ces petits êtres gracieux et drôles à la fois, et de découvrir ces paysages magnifiques 😍🙏 . So much grateful to @oceanwideexpedtions and to the staff of the M/V Plancius for making this dream of Antarctica come true 😊🙏 . #antartica #antarctique #boutdumonde #endoftheworld #antarticatravel #oceanwideexpeditions #mvplancius #dreamcometrue #vivresesreves #snow #neige #ice #glace #glacier #pingouins #pinguins #manchots #natureisbeautiful #amazingnature #adventure #aventure #travels #voyages #gratitude #cestçalebonheur #happydiscovering #happysharing #voirdequoiestfaitlemonde #seetheworld

The boat that took me on a 12 day exhibition to Antarctica. One of the most amazing trips I have experienced. There are no words to describe it.

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” Ordinary days are a good thing. We spiced it up by going for a sunset run to catch the full moon, but later I still found myself scrolling through my phone tonight and looking at photos from my recent trip. It’s hard to balance life, but I know that normal routine is incredibly good. Because when you break that routine it’s all the more sweet. . . #optoutside #explore #adventure #girlswhotravel #getoutside #antarctica #boat #harbor #staywild #wanderlust #travel #southpole #snow #oceanwide #mvplancius

This weekend marks five years since I took a monumental leap out of my comfort zone and stepped aboard the Plancius on the journey of a lifetime to Antarctica. It ignited a love of travel that has led me to the career I have today and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to see this pristine wonderland up close 🇦🇶🐧 #antarctica #portcharcot #mvplancius
