A Tribute To Edward Bransfield and the Discovery of the Antarctic Continent 

Explorers today pride themselves on making their own trails, discovering hidden gems, and venturing off the beaten path. We are inspired by the explorers of old, those who sought to chart and map the mysteries of the world. Explorers like Irish ship’s master Edward Bransfield, whose legendary expedition discovered and first charted the mainland of Antarctica in 1820.

Elephants on Safari

I’ve been a nature-lover my whole life, but I began traveling specifically to see animals in the wild back in the early ’90s. Still in my early 20s then, I was fascinated by watching wildlife. My passion grew exponentially as I took up photography and became more adept at spotting hidden animals.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve been blessed to explore over 40 countries on six continents. The one thing most of the places I’ve visited have in common? An opportunity to...

The Antarctic Circle is one of the most isolated and remote destinations in the world. So naturally, it’s many a traveler’s dream to explore the vast white wilderness of the Antarctic islands. This is Earth’s final frontier—a pristine continent of elemental forces. Less than a century ago, only a handful of humans had experienced its dynamic environment of ice, snow, rock, and water.

Nowadays, cruises to the Antarctic islands generally depart from South America,...

As a people, Samoans share a common language, a warm, generous spirit, a love of tattoos, and a 3,000-year-old cultural code. Fa’a Samoa, the Samoan Way, emphasizes loyalty to family, respect for one’s elders, and a commitment to serving the community, which is considered all-important. But one thing Samoans no longer share? The same time zone.

It is just one of the differences guests on our 14-day...

On August 21, the moon will pass in front of the sun and the sky will turn completely dark in the middle of the day. Total solar eclipses like this occur approximately once every 18 months, but they’re usually only visible from less than half a percent of the Earth’s surface. This will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979.

Despite the brevity of this phenomenon, its rarity makes it an experience stargazers do not want to miss....
