Very excited about going to Antarctica

I'm very excited about going to Antarctica - wouldn't you be?

Would you like to go there? Why, or why not?

Some people think Antarctica is too cold and too far away. Other people would love the chance to visit such an unspoiled continent and see all the amazing scenery and wildlife.

There's one group of people that don't get the chance - and that's children. It's only adults who go to Antarctica most of the time, and very few children have ever been there. But if you join in my Antarctic adventure, I'm hoping you might get an idea of what it's like (and maybe you can visit there later!)

Meantime - what do two vintage tractors and a modern Massey Fergusson MF5600 travelling from Piha to Aoraki Mt Cook have to do with Antarctica?

Here's a clue - and you can read more about Expedition South here.
