Oh hey, I've got a blog over here!

*Cross-posted from my Frozen Sharon blog*


My poor neglected travel blog. I haven't posted anything here since the end of October. I shall blame the holidays. Yeah, that's it! (Can I blame the holiday season if it's been 4 months since posting?)

Well, I haven't traveled anywhere yet, and I haven't really entered any contests.
I'm still obsessed with Antarctica though! On Twitter, I have been following Andrew Evans. His Twitter ID is Bus2Antarctica and here is his bio: Andrew Evans is traveling 10,000 miles, from DC to Antarctica, by bus for National Geographic Traveler.

Awesome, huh? He's been Tweeting stuff from the trip, and uploading pictures from Twitter. This trip is his first time in Antarctica.

I've been loving following his adventure, but the pictures he put up today just blew me away. It's a BLACK penguin! The following pictures & the captions underneath are by Andrew Evans.

*edit*
It looks like Andrew removed the pictures from his ow.ly account. I'm guessing it was to protect his copyright, or because NatGeo wanted him to so they can be published later in NatGeo Traveler, since he was working for them on the trip. I did save copies of them, but until they are back online I won't put them here.
*/edit*


Isn't that just the most amazing thing? And to see it your very first time to Antarctica.



Also, the dude who won the Quark Expeditions contest is now on his trip and the blog posts are being uploaded. I'm gonna read them later today, and probably link to or cross post them for y'all to see too. Lucky SOB.
