The UK has had so much rain this winter (oh and the summer, and spring, and fall too, when I think about it), but instead of thinking about building an ark, maybe we should just take off to visit some of the driest places in the world. But then again, I’m not sure the driest places in the world would be much fun either. It’s a hard choice, isn’t it? Be sopping wet or parched dry?
It may seem counter-intuitive, considering all that snow and the icebergs and all, but Antarctica is actually one of the driest places in the world, as it gets under 10cm of rainfall per year. If you’re looking for an amazing adventure, cruises to Antarctica depart from Ushuaia, Argentina, which is the world’s southernmost city. During the cruise, you will get to see humbling glaciers and icebergs, as well as say hello to the seals and elegant little penguins roaming around. And maybe you’ll even get to see some orcas doing a back flip most athletes would envy!
