Adventurers Club of Honolulu - Feb 21, 2021 meeting - Antarctica
Location: via Zoom (information is shared with those who register)
When ACH members Carolyn and David Gire started planning their bucket list trip to Antarctica they were told “go for as long as you can, on the smallest ship you can, and don’t miss South Georgia.” They will talk about the resulting month-long trip in early 2020, visiting Argentina, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. Their presentation will feature abundant wildlife, beautiful scenery and a massive tabular iceberg, A68a, which has recently been in the news. Carolyn and David are both retired and like to spend their time planning and taking trips, pandemics permitting. They have visited more than 50 countries, all seven continents and are working on the 50 states.
