Bright and early the next morning we were at the Canadian Embassy. Rachel’s flight left at 5:30pm that night and the lady gave us hope that Rachel would be on it. After dropping the forms off we went to get passport photos taken. (If anyone wants a really horrible picture of Rachel let Stacey know. She stole one of the extras and is willing to share). We sat at the embassy all morning. We were in good spirits and mostly just talked about how great Antarctica was and made plans for future trips to meet up with our new friends around the world. At noon they told us to go get lunch and our bags and be back at the embassy at two. When we got back to the embassy we anxiously waited. Around 2:20pm Rachel was handed an emergency travel document!!
This brings our crazy Antarctic adventure to an end. We managed to smile and laugh the entire trip despite Stacey leaving her debit card in the bank machine the first day, having to share one toothbrush and one deodorant the whole time on the boat, and Rachel’s wallet/passport getting stolen. Memories that will last a lifetime!
(We will get some pictures and videos up soon! We promise!)
