Antarctica December 2020

One thing I’m looking forward to, even though it’s over 18 months away, is my solo trip to Antarctica. I still cannot believe I got myself to cut tickets.

I had to look at 

  1. How long the itinerary is and which locations to cover!
    • I opted for the 22 day Epic Antarctica option at Quark where we get to cross the Antarctic Circle and visit the Falklands and South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula
    • The more you want to see, the longer the cruise becomes. I didn’t really want a 22 day cruise, but it ended up becoming that if I wanted to cover as much as I wanted.
  2. Activities
    • I paid extra for all the activities I could sign up for: kayaking and camping.
    • There will also be zodiaking included (a group gets on a mini raft to explore from the cruise landing)
    • I’ll get to do water plunge in the sea…not looking forward to that, but I have to (for the experience!)
    • Kayaking gets filled up very quickly, so I made sure I was one of the first to sign up for it (which is why my trip is over 1.5 years later!)
  3. Room size
    • Since I’m solo traveling, I was okay with the cheapest option: triple berth, which means I will have two other female roommates. It’s safe to say I’ll make two friends! Solo traveling is never really solo!

This Antarctica trip will be a once in a lifetime thing for me. I am now 23, and I’ll be 25 when I set foot on that cruise ship. I feel special knowing that this 23-year-old Amber is taking care of the future 25-year-old Amber. I hope I look back and appreciate the courage it took me to book this trip. It wasn’t easy. My family takes trips multiple times a year, but all my vacation days will be used up in 2020 for this trip. So this really is a sacrifice I’m making to invest in myself. I am very excited, and I feel so badass already booking the trip even though I didn’t even set foot on the island yet!
