Friday September 19, 2003It's not strictly a gizmo, but we thought this Antarctic tour conducted by New Scientist with multi award winning (and very funny) author Bill Bryson as the escort for the voyage might warrant our readers attention. The 10 night / 11 day on the expedition-style cruise vessel Peregrine Voyager covers the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula and in addition to Bryson as escort, expert photographer David McGonigal will lead passengers through one of the most untouched, photogenic locations on the planet. Bill Bryson, who is most famous for his travel books and more recently A Short History of Nearly Everything, will provide several talks en-route and accompany you on shore excursions as well as social functions.All inclusive packages from A$12,630.
