Fire & Ice Tour Itinerary

January 7, 2017

My recent November 2016 travels -- dubbed the “Fire & Ice Tour” by fellow adventure traveler Johnny Bravo -- consisted of a layover in Panama, a basecamp activity cruise to Antarctica, and road tripping through Argentina for a total of three weeks. I’m excited to share all of the stories from the trip, but to get started I wanted to do an overall post of the trip itinerary. As I write more Fire & Ice Tour posts, I’ll link back to this main post for easy reference. (Let’s be strategic about this, OK?) ;)

This adventure was part three years dreaming and planning, and part magically unplanned and unexpected. The Fire & Ice Tour was my 7th continent trip and I found it to be challenging, exciting, dangerous, exhilarating, freeing, and life altering; the biggest adventure of my life so far in these glorious 30 years.
