Carol--A dog-loving, silly, sarcastic, private southern girl who loves to travel. Bryan--a laid-back, good-hearted, humorous, friend to all
The most amazing moment in my life so far
Walking off of the National Geographic Endeavour onto the ocean's pack ice in Antarctica. I laughed and cried in the magic of the moment, shook with terror that the ice would give way to freezing water, and yet really did not give a hoot if it did.
