  1. There are guides to tour you and give lectures about the place.
    There are mountain hikes and camping and scuba diving along with other activities
    to be done while on tour. Alternately, some feel that by exposing
    Antarctica to people, these people will become moved
    to involve themselves in its protection.

  5. I just attended a speaking engagement this weekend with Anthony Reed, one of only a handful of people on earth to have run a marathon in all 50 states and on all seven continents. He has over 125 medals and even showed us pictures of his marathon in Antarctica! He talked about his bucket list and inspired me to create one of my own. Not only do I love a lot of items on this list, I also love that I’ve done some of them too. It reminds me that even though I want to do a lot, that I’ve been lucky enough to have done a lot already. Gratitude.
