Around the World to Antarctica

Hi everyone! I have been working on something special for you. I hope you enjoy it!

This weekend I visited Toledo, OH to see the Grosvenor Teacher Fellow’s exhibit at the National Center for Nature Photography. Twenty of the 2015 GTFs submitted photos from our expeditions to this exhibit, and they look great all up together on display! If you get the chance to visit the area before the end of March, please check it out and let me know what you think.

This was also a chance for me to reunite with some of my fellow Fellows that I haven’t seen since April. It was awesome to reconnect with Laura, Dawnetta, Shannon, and Shasta, and hear what they’ve been up to since they returned from their expeditions. Talking with them reminded me of some items on my “to-do” list, and I came back feeling inspired to tackle a large one: telling you all about the average day in the life of an Antarctic teacher fellow.

To share my day-by-day experiences with you, I have created a Google Tour that you can access by clicking below:

Antarctica 2015

A few things to know about this tour before you begin:

  • If you’re having trouble seeing the tour in 3D, you’re going to want to get the free Google Earth software on your computer, or access the tour from a computer that already has it installed. Then, download this kmz file and open it with Google Earth.
  • You can go through each day on my expedition by clicking the blue “Next” and “Back” buttons.
  • You can scroll through the photos by clicking the sideways arrow buttons when they show up, and see the photos in full screen by clicking the button in the bottom right corner of the photographs.
  • Don’t forget to click on the links to see other memories from my expedition that I’ve already posted!

I am new to this tool and still figuring it out. I’d love to know what you think about this format for sharing, so please leave me a comment below if you enjoyed this type of interaction on the blog. ☮❤️🐧
