I'd like to spend a few weeks as a tourist in Australia, and have a few misdemeanors from 16-17 years ago, with no jail time sentenced or served. I wanted to know from those who have also answered "yes" to the criminal conviction question when applying for an ETA, what happens next and how long did it delay your ETA from being granted? Are there additional forms that you were required to fill out?

I'm guessing that answering yes is going to automatically result in a questioning by an…

Hello, everyone!
My name is Emily, I'm a landscape and outdoor-lifestyle photographer based out of Boston (but really living no place in particular). Lately, I have become very interested in potentially working as a polar expedition photographer.
However, before I dive into it, I want to hear from some people who have done his kind of living-on-ship, expedition-photography work in the past.
What was your day-to-day like?
Did it help you further your career or build your portfolio?
Would you do it…

Hello friends!

I'm just about to pay for a terrific last minute deal which I found via tour company "Antarctica Travels" based in Ushuaia. Would love to hear if anyone has booked through them before?? Are they as great as they sound?

Thanks,
Laura :)

Posting this here since I don't think South Georgia is considered part of S. America. Have done the Antarctic cruises a couple of times but now would also like to go to S. Georgia. All the tours I see combine S. Georgia with the Falklands and the Antrct. Peninsula... not that I wouldn't love going on a 3 week trip again to all the places I've been twice before, but in the interest of time I was just wondering if there is any way to visit just S. Georgia reasonably easily (which means not…

Hi Everyone,
was wanting to know how hit and miss it is to find a Antarctica cruise last minute. We were planning to get down to Ushuaia around the 18th of December, or is there more departures from Punta Arenas?

we will be coming from Australia so already its not cheap, so don't mind hanging around for a few days to get something last minute to save a few $$

Is this time of year at its busiest due to xmas holidays or do people stay home due to xmas?? any advice would be appreciated

Hi,

I have just written a travel report of Antarctica based on a 14 day trip I did below the Antarctic Circle with Quark expeditions. The report contains a detailed itinerary along with lots of photos and other related information that might be useful to someone planning a trip this season.

You can access the report here:

If you require any additional information, please contact me.

Hi everyone,

For weeks I have been looking around for an Antarctica (plus Argentina) travel insurance policy that covers trip cancellation for unforeseen events, natural disasters (and "act of God" - unsure if there is even such company who offers this).

I've searched numerous travel insurance engine sites and called many companies. All of the providers I came accross offering trip cancellation for unforeseen events, natural disasters (on top of usual trip cancellation, medical coverage…

hi all

just wondering if anyone has flown across the Drake Passage and their opinions of it. I am considering this because a. I get easily very sea sick and b. saves a bit of time.

Yes I know it's considerably more expensive, and have read other forums on dealing with sea sickness across Drake passage.

I have seen several reviews for Quark but none for Hurtigruten so checking to see if anyone has traveled with Hurtigruten to Antarctica or how the 2 companies compare. It looks like the Hurtigruten have larger ships so thinking that there would be less landing & more zodiacs but they both offer camping. Any help is appreciated. Annie
