Unloading my luggage at the airport.

Departure Day was a flurry of emotions.

I felt excited that the countdown was finally over, but felt sad to say goodbye to my family over the holidays. On the other hand, I was thrilled that my husband would be joining me for part of the trip. With so many waypoints between my place of departure and the final destination, I couldn’t help but to feel anxious about my extensive travel schedule. Most of all, I felt raw excitement for the adventure ahead of me.

Believe it or not, it takes less time to travel to the moon than it does to Palmer Station, Antarctica. Remarkably, I will transcend countries, continents, cultures, and time zones to finally reach the underbelly of our planet. Ready, set, go… Let our polar adventures begin!
