best Christmas Ever

As We descended the gangway into the zodiacs, everybody was so excited. Our whole group was laughing, joking, and generally just being "Those crazy college kids" The excitement was heightened by being in the most beautiful place in the world. Once we all laid eyes upon the icebergs though, we just stopped talking. There are no words whatsoever to describe the beauty and power of nature we've experienced. here is what we saw...
"The Ice Ship"

This is my favorite iceberg photo. It shall soon be a poster on my wall.

"Heart of Ice"

I literally, could not have been happier this day. I was exactly where I wanted to be and with who I wanted to be with. This iexperience raised many questions about the future and where I was going. It made me absolutely positive that I want to be a proffessional photographer and a counselor at the same time. I think the best thing about icebergs is that most of them are underwater. This can be an ultar hipster metaphore for life. The best is not yet revealed to us yet. These photos represent my undying excitement for life and the future of my friends, family, and self. Life is wonderful and nature is powerful and everywhere. I urge all who read these words to not waste one moment doing something you don't want to do. Go live a hard life full of love and curiosity.

As you can guess, I took WAY too many photos of penguins or "Penguinos" as I liked to call them. This penguin photo will always be my favorite. It is exactly as I saw the penguines. Silly, curious, and happy. The penguins live a happy life doing what they wayt to do.

After our amazing, life-changing, zodiac ride, we came back to the ship and there was a huge party waiting for us! This is all still on Christmas Eve by the way. Santa came all the way from the North Pole to wish us a Merry Christmas. It was great.

This is our Antarctica group.

The sun started to go down and eveybody proceeded to go into the ship to the bar and start the celebration. There was drinks, dancing, and lots and lots of fun. The sunset was the most spectacular thing I'd ever seen so We kept running back outside for photos. All in all it was a great party/evening. The sun only dort of went down, then it came right back up to greet the Christmas day In Antarctica. The final day we were in Antarctica we went to Deception Island, whic is an active volcanoe. This is also the place we chose to go swimming in the zero degree celcius was very very cold.
