Photo @jasonedwardsng The world is bigger than modern technology would have us believe. The vast differences in culture and lifestyle mask a shared ancestry and the wonders of our ancient cultures. . On Easter Island, Rapa Nui, stone Moai warm their backs in the dawn light rising above the horizon. Weathered sentinels giving us a glimpse into humanities past on our journeys around the world with National Geographic Expeditions. .

Photo by @krystlejwright // During our recent Journey to the White Continent cruise onboard the Orion, I’ve never seen so many evenings in a row with spectacular late light dancing its way across the mountains. The Lemaire Channel was full of ice which forced us to retreat north but with views like this, it was well worth the sudden change in plans. #antarctica
Photo by @save.our.plankton At a mere 2 inches long, the Spanish shawl nudibranch is small in size, but immense in beauty. The bright orange cerata appendages on the back extract oxygen from the sea water, allowing the animal to breathe. It’s always worth taking time to notice the small things in nature.

Photo @jasonedwardsng The magnificent southern alps in New Zealand, rise into the clear sky fracturing the horizon with their ragged, brutal teeth. It is wonderful to know there are such remote and unspoiled places like this in the world. . It’s even more special when those same countries make some of the best wine in the world, and you can experience it whilst dining amongst these peaks with National Geographic Expeditions! .

Photo by @jeffmauritzen. King penguins crowd the beach at Gold Harbour, South Georgia. The nutrient rich waters that surround this island, provide a year round abundance of food for the millions of #penguins that call it home. This March, I’ll be heading back to #SouthGeorgiaIsland aboard the National Geographic Explorer. For more penguin goodness, please follow me @jeffmauritzen.
Photo by @jimrichardsonng Gannets swarmed out from Boreray, one of their favorite nesting places in the North Atlantic. I figure any trip that gets you to Boreray is a good bet, there just aren’t that many ways to get to these islands in St.Kilda, a good forty miles west of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. We’ll be there in May on the Ancient Isles cruise to see this spectacle of nature. (You might guess I’m looking forward to it.) #scotland#hebrides#stkilda#seabirds@natgeo
Photo @jasonedwardsng Likely the most unusual and coolest place I’ve ever read one of our Mags. An underwater lounge and bar on an Expedition ship. Thanks @natgeoexpeditions, @ponantcruises and @natgeoau for inviting me along to launch our new National Geographic Expedition program. The wonders of modern engineering and ship building were astounding, thanks Captain Lemaire. Very exciting! . @natgeoexpeditions#jasonedwardsng#natgeoexpeditions
