At sea – Februar 17, 2017
There is a fair and steady breeze blowing around the southernmost corner of New Zealand, the sun is shining, warmly and strongly, the air warmer than I have experienced it for quite some time.
Exactly 100 passengers from almost just as many countries have found their way to our ship, the Ortelius, and everybody is curious what the next weeks will bring. It is the beginning of an Antarctic Odyssey, more than 6000 miles are ahead of us.

A light, pleasant breeze is blowing during the first few miles, we have set course south for Campbell Island. Two years ago, we spent more than a day looking at the island in force 10 winds and beyond. Which was, in a way, impressive and beautiful, but going ashore is the real thing. Will it work this time? We are curious, fingers crossed. It would be a dream come true.
