Today’s drake passage swell is better than the yesterday, and so am i. Although it was still uncomfortable being dragged like that, it was really getting better though.
I ate my breakfast peacefully and forced more solid meal to come in since i puked the other day and ate less than usual. And as i sat on the table, looked at the window, i felt really really sad i had to go and already miss everything (except the drake). I miss all the layers i have to wear for the landing, i miss the snow, i miss the sound of the winds and the snow, i miss the classes, i miss my cabin, i miss the delicious meal, i miss the friendly crew onboard as i chewed my meal.

I woke up to a familiar sensation, only this time was much worse. The swell from the drake passage was just playing me around from side to side.
Drake passage, a sea famous for either its “drake’s shake” or “drake’s lake” is a meet between Pacific, Atlantic, and Southern ocean. Throughout this eleven days journey, I only met the former (drake’s shake, with the wave heights reaching 8 meter when I left for Antarctica, and 10 meter heights now).

Today is the last outing day, although there’s only cruising (no landing). But i tried to savour everything that i can since God knows when i will be travelling to Antarctica again, if that’s even possible.
I woke up late in the morning, knowing that the cruising will start at 10:00 am. After breakfast, i got out in the deck-6, took some scenery pictures before went back to my room and putting all the usual outfit for landing/cruising.
I have been always the first person to sit and wait nicely in the reception deck-4 (before each is group is called for landing in deck-3), and today is no different.
