Sending some ☀️ to you all

Sending some ☀️ to you all

Hello lovely ladies,

I felt very privileged to have met up with 3 fellow warriors from here last week at Wisley and it was just lovely to finally put some names to faces. We met the day before I flew out to Buenos Aires which is the beginning of a near month long adventure hubby & I have had planned for 2 years (& one I thought might be scuppered after last year's medical issues!)

But...here we are enjoying our last day in Buenos Aires as tomorrow we fly to Santiago, where on Thurs we catch our ship, which will be our home for 21 days. It will take us all the way down to Antarctica, up to the Falklands and back to Argentina!! A life long dream of mine and also a 'bucket list' for my darling late Mum.

I'm posting because I will have very limited access to the internet whilst aboard and I am aware that there are many of you facing some new and also reoccurring challenges. I am thinking of you all and sending you strength over the airwaves and will check in as and when I can. And if I can share a few iceberg/penguin photos...I will ☺

Much love to you all, Jemima xxx

P.s Here's a collection of photos I took on Monday whilst ambling around Palermo Soho district 💕

Hi Jemima

Wow! I've dreamt of going on one of those trips to the Antarctic for so long but rather expensive so I guess it's going to remain a dream. Are you on one of the ships where you get the chance to kayak? Wishing you a marvellous time, take lots of pics of the icebergs and the penguins. One of the Emperor Penguins may even be Happy Feet if he made it back home and perhaps he did! 🐧

Glad the meet-up at Wisley went well.

You'll have lots to tell us when you can get the internet access.

Bon voyage! Helen

Hi Jemima, looks fantastic, hope the rest of the hols go well. I had my scan report today and it seems to be clear, although there is a non-specific thing in my lung, apparently, but she didn't think it was sinister.

Keep on enjoying your wonderful trip Jemima. You deserve it and your description cheers me up. In fact all your posts do. You sound brave enough to do anything . I can imagine you swimming with sharks or jumping out of aeroplanes but please try not to. We need you on the site. Take care.

Haha thanks Molly...I was privileged to cage dive with great whites in South Africa 2 years ago (one of the most frightening yet exilerating things I've ever done) and funnily enough plan to do a parachute jump with hubby and step son whilst in New Zealand this summer!! All on the old bucket list! Might as well whilst I am fit and able!! It's my adventures that kept me going on that operating table last year!!

One thing I def hope to do whilst in Antarctica in the coming weeks, is kayak with orcas! We will see if the gods are looking favourably on me or not :)

Had a few cheeky rum cocktails tonight and raised it in honour of all you wonderful ladies...you are all with me on my adventures!! Xx

Good on you Jemima

You do these things for cowards like me ! I'm brave enough facing people and even PPC but not scary animals or large sharks and of course heights . Kayaking with orcas sounds like such an adventure. Enjoy every moment. I would definitely be brave enough for the rum cocktails ! Have a ball .
