If you have a bucket list of countries you’d like to visit, then a trip to Antarctica should definitely be on it! This is the coldest and southernmost continent, and for many people, this turns out to be a sacred destination.
When people think of a desert they think of a place covered in sand and sand dunes. Morocco is home to the Sahara Desert, which spans over 3.5 million square miles, roughly the size of the United States. It stretches from the Red Sea in the east, all the way to the Atlantic Ocean in the west. That’s a lot of sand!
One of the reasons I love visiting Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere is because it is one of the few places in the world where you can see Penguins! South Georgia is an Island located in the Southern Hemisphere, just off the peninsula of Antarctica and is home to the largest King Penguin Colony in the world.
When you put an ice cube in your glass do you ever wonder how old it actually is? If you are in the United States, Europe, or a country along the equator the ice in your glass probably isn’t more than a couple of days, or even a couple of hours old. Well in polar regions, like Antarctica, the ice is over 100 THOUSAND years old. Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest continent on Earth and holds over 90% of the world’s freshwater as Ice.
