It’s quite often the first question I am asked after visiting all seven continents. To most, Antarctica is only a place of scientific research and for famous historical adventurers. However, there is a way to now visit Antarctica and has been for quite some time, but the problem was never logistics, it was the price. With tourism growing in this remote corner of the world, more and more opportunities for everyone to experience Antarctica are beginning to open up! Antarctica is just as addictive as it is incredible to visit. So put your polar boots and parka on and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime to the most remote continent on the planet, Antarctica!
People always ask me how I can afford to travel so much, all of the time. It starts with hard work, dedication, and priorities but I definitely have some tricks up my sleeve that have saved me tons of money in the past. Knowing how to get cheap flights has been one of the things that has enabled me to see so much of this world.

It’s remarkable, every ex-Soviet Union country
I visit I can still feel the remains of the great empire it once was. The
Soviet Union left its mark on these nations’ architecture, politics, food, and
even its culture. Scattered across 15 different countries you will find old
military equipment, structures reminiscing a villain’s layer, dictator statues,
Gulag work camps and of course the taste of dill on everything you eat. It is huge,
fascinating and you will often find you are the only traveller in the area.
This is the former Soviet Union and one of histories most fascinating times!
The dense cloud forests blanketing the valleys around Chachapoyas, Peru hold many secrets. Swinging my machete to clear the brush we push on deeper into the unknown in search of archaeological sights shrouded in mysterious mythological tales.
Above, the tombs of ancients cling to the cliffs, now and then a human skull protrudes from the brush fallen from its final resting place. Clearing off the vines from a stone wall, patterns begin to emerge, these are not natural piles of stones, they are the remnants of a civilization long gone and swallowed by the jungle. It’s remote, hot, and took a lot of effort to get here, but damn do I ever feel like Indiana Jones!
