We almost can't believe this is our 36th edition since we began in 2012. We've also proudly, just exceeded 100,000 subscribers for the first time!

To celebrate, Swarovski Optik are giving you the chance to win a limited edition pair of binoculars worth $1,590 rrp and we're giving everyone a free copy of Outer Edge Magazine (password=Edition47Free), featuring Charles Werb's pioneering snow-sailing expedition.

As a result of the travel profiles you've been creating, we have been busy creating trips. Some of our guests are joining leaders to see Mountain Gorillas in Uganda, Lemurs in Madagascar, swimming with Humpback Whales in Tonga and we have a heap more in the pipeline.

The more you tell us, the more we can help ... and since half of you have expressed a desire to see Antarctica, we've decided to devote this special edition to the frozen continent and some of our friends, who have made ti their life's ambition to help you discover the deep south.

You're going to meet Antarctic guide and illustrator of The Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife, Brett Jarrett. You're going to discover what life was like for cinematographer and mariner Frederique Olivier, who wintered among Emperor Penguins in the southern polar region for 12 months, driving a robot penguin for research, and filming it for the BBC.

So make yourself a cup of cocoa, wrap up warm and this edition, where we hope you'll get more of the insiders view of Antarctica, from the home-grown Antarctic travellers who have lived to bring the frozen continent to you and take you to it.

Best wishes,

Simon Mustoe
Founder, Wildiaries

A Portrait of Penguins and Pastel Hues

When you leave, you're always wondering if this is the last time you'll see Antarctica. Anyone who visits will feel it ... a sort of emptiness. You get very emotional when you leave ... to think you may never return, is a strange thing. There's something missing when you remember the days and the light, the late evening when the ice glows pink and blue ...
