Joining the 7th Continent Club: Our Antarctic Adventure

December 11, 2017 Special Guest Author

Harry and Audrey, a CPA and speech pathologist by trade, travel the world and blog about their epic adventures. Known as ‘The Budget Savvy Travelers,’ they’ve been exploring for ten years and are admittedly “addicted” to travel. Originally from Chicago, these citizens of the world recently traveled to Antarctica with Quark Expeditions and checked the 7th continent off their list.

Harry and Audrey explore the Antarctic Peninsula and a nearby penguin colony.

I write this with tears in my eyes. We proudly present our most wonderful journey to our last, final continent. Many who venture to Antarctica are often overcome with emotion because it is such a unique, beautiful, indescribable place. On this journey we were surrounded by a young woman battling cancer, older folks on their last great adventure, and other backpackers taking a risky chance by living life in a less conventional way.

I feel so blessed to say that I have met my life goal to set foot on all 7 continents. It is an incredible feeling, but leaves me deeply wondering what is next for me? What goal will I now set before myself to achieve? This was almost was too easy.

If you take the six minutes to watch this video, you’ll see in my face the happiness that this experience has given me. A lifelong goal being achieved before your eyes.

Please, if you have something that is deeply burning deep inside you to complete, set the wheels in motion today. If we could do it, so can you! Just today, someone asked us, “So, is everything you did worth it?” And we quickly, without thought, immediately answered, “Yes!” Because how could taking this amazing adventure not be? We are living a dream that sometimes we don’t feel worthy to be given.

I’d like to thank my husband who painstakingly went through hours of video footage to create this, and all of our other videos. I think you have a new calling as a cinematographer or producer.

Our story will be forever documented for us to relive so we’ll never forget the epic adventure we shared together. I love you forever. Thank you for sharing this beautiful life with me. And to everyone else, continued thanks for following along.
