ANTARCTICA DEBRIEF REPORT

It has taken me longer than I had hoped to pull together this post Antarctica round-up debrief. Between jet-lag (which I just seem to take an inordinate amount of time to get over when crossing so many time zones – particularly between the Americas and Australia), Christmas, New Year social functions, a stomach upset, my […]

These Icelandic horses are the original descendants from the first horses the Norse bought with them when they came to iceland hundreds of years ago. Today they are virtually disease […]
