Off-The-Beaten-Track: Arctic Exploration


Fabled Arctic Ship Found!

It was in September 2014 that a Franklin Search Expedition successfully located one of the lost ships from Franklin's doomed Arctic expedition - the HMS Erebus. The Canadian Prime Minister was there to mark this auspicious occasion:

Searching for Franklin Expedition with Canadian PM

"I am delighted to announce...the discovery of one of the two ships belonging to the Franklin Expedition,"

said Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper (4th from right)

Going places - Paris, Charles de Gaulles Airport


Christine recently returned from a scouting trip to Namibia's famous Sossusvlei Dunes  (BLOG), was fortunate to observe the elusive desert elephants and revisited the arid Etosha National Park. Boecker then enjoyed a family safari to Zimbabwe's famous Victoria Falls and Botswana's Chobe River.

Now is perfect the time to plan your Safari - we are brimming with fresh ideas to make your African sojourn even more exciting!

December saw Christine Boecker visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany and exploring the many castles and ancient ruins along the River Rhine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Previously Christine visited the vibrant and exciting country of Ecuador, experiencing the best of the Galapagos Archipelago, the Amazon and the Andean Highlands.
