  Me against the elements!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Ok, I'd never have guessed these 2 would mix.
No idea what I'm referring to?
Well, these are the 2 brands of sunglasses I brought along on this trip.

Ok, let's face it. I'm not into branded goods. Been over that long time ago.
Neither do I like to be labelled "Miss Brands", if you know what I mean.

Reason why they appeared here is simple.
Eye protection.
I figure I shouldn't mess around with my eyes (ya know, the window to my soul, lol...) while in Antarctica. One can go blind here just simply by staring at those beautiful icebergs.
Who'd have guessed, right?
Yep, make sure you have a decent pair of sunglasses, if not 2.
The reason I brought along the branded ones (& I do wear tons of those unbranded ones, simply because I like the design & they are affordable to lose...) is because I can at the very least be sure they state what they are supposed to do!

(Cont. on Miscellaneous)

Miscellaneous: Chanel is good for wearing onboard the ship. Because it's not so darned dark that I can hardly see what I'm shooting with the camera!

Oakley is great for protection.
Against the blinding sun & the wind!
& I guess they do look cool ;-)
If you can, try to get those polarized ones.
I should have :-(
