Early in the morning about 4:45 am, i was woken up by the announcement that said the weather looks so good that they would try to pass the Lemaire Channel, and the view was amazing, passengers are welcome to go out and enjoy the view.
I was half woken and pushed myself to got up and ran to deck-6. And she was more than right, the sun was the brightest so far we’ve had on the boat, and the view was amazing as we entered the Lemaire Channel. I took pictures and videos as we entering the channel, and back to my room, about to rest myself a bit before another announcement came that said there were ice sheets ahead of us and it was a beautiful sight. I went again outside to deck-6 and witness the most spectacular view i had ever witnessed so far. The spread of ice sheets stretched before the ship, with the sun shone so bright and i cried. Literally cried. I didn’t know why i did, but when i saw the view i just got so emotional and i cried. It was simply beautiful, so beautiful it made me vulnerable, meaningless, and grateful at the same time. That was the first for me to feel all of them at the same time.
