3 days in Iceland Itinerary: See the Best of Iceland

Iceland Waterfalls

Ah Iceland. It’s hard to believe that it wasn’t that long ago that nobody knew about this island country.

ESBT Antarctica January 2025

Adorable Gentoo penguins shuffling along their penguin highways. A pudgy baby elephant seal, poking around our emergency supplies. A massive humpback whale, popping up beside us to eye our zodiac.

Best Places to Travel Solo: Venice

Think Venice is only for couples on romantic vacations? I dare you to think again. Venice seems to be a hit or a miss with most people.
