ANTARCTICA

November gives you the excuse to tick yet another item off your bucketlist. For this month is the perfect time to travel to one of the most unique places on Earth. Summer in Antarctica means that the temperature rises above freezing, causing the sea ice to melt and baby penguins and elephant seals to cross the Antarctica circle.

#TakeMeThere Climb about the National Geographic Explorer, which will take you close to the action. A National Geographic photographer will also be on board to help you capture this special moment.

YUCATAN

Mexico
