In December, Steve Brandon joined an elite group of travelers: he took a journey to Antarctica where he and his wife crossed the seventh continent off their list.
He flew from Atlanta to Punta Arenas in Chile via Santiago and Puerto Montt where he stayed overnight. The next day, he boarded a flight for King George Island where he met the Sea Adventurer for his five-day Antarctic adventure. Upon his return, he shared his incredible images with us.
