Yesterday, December 15, 2012, 3 years after my return from one of the greatest experiences of my life, the Antarctic expedition 2009 in that old and retired Russian ship Molchanov, and today I finally decided to melt in a VIDEO (and not in parts) that adventure. ! Enjoy it!

It is possible that the Ice Continent is no longer within my reach anymore. However, there are many memories that I still have, but above all I still have within me those reflections on my return that I will never forget ...

"I look around and sigh. Everything remains the same. Here people worry about their own vainities; buy clothes, make wars, live above our means ... Gone is that iceberg emitting a loud rumble falling on the water, or thosewhales with their mermaid song dancing a waltz a few meters from us, or theWeddell seals and his permanent nap and thenice penguins, the "climbers", the "adelie" or my dear "Juanitos". I leave that one behind tooimmense loneliness, that silence on the top of one of the many mountains of this inhospitable beauty or that sun that illuminates thesunset of the canals of Lemaire. I leave that precious one behindexpedition in Zodiak by Melchor Island or by Bahia Paraiso, the prettiest bay I could have ever imagined. Behind I leave ... Behind I leave a true museum of sculpturesglaciers and icebergs of different shades, reflections, colors ... or those brave who spend whole years in bases livingthe raw Antarctic, that one that has been seen someday, those blizzards, those snowfalls, that almost unbearable cold. ANDthe Antarctic bathfeeling penguins for a day, and the snow war on top of Neko Harbor. Everything is left behind ... possibly forever.


 

Antarctica is everything I was looking for and much more. Isa planet apart within our own planet which can only be accessed by paying the hard price of the Drake Pass. A place where man has barely reached out and that retains authenticity and virginity in abundance, in addition to 80% of the fresh water of the entire Earth. The last continent discovered and the last explored. It is also an abysmal desert, where more than 90% of the continent barely contains fauna and flora (the Antarctic Peninsula is a privilege).

I look and surprise myself. Coming back from any trip misses you, but I have never felt so disoriented as now. Everything bothers me. The noise, the traffic jams, the cars ... Everything makes me look back. Even reflect. Until the fashion movie this Christmas, Avatar (which I loved by the way), a film that shows for the nth time that where man puts his hand ... sweeps. Luckily there are still organizations and willingness for countries to respect this frozen continent ...one of the few places on this planet where you can still feel SOMETHING THAT IN NO OTHER PLACE IN THE WORLD CAN YOU… the sixth continent…. !!! MY DEAR ANTÁRTIDA!

 

Isaac, from a distant memory ...
