PHOTOS: Five Images Describe Five Incredible Encounters


The past thirty-six hours of this expedition 'Kamchatka Coast: Siberia's Forgotten Coast' has been simply amazing. We have done so much, seen so much, and experienced so much that it would take pages and pages to describe and I may well not do it justice right now.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will let the five photos in this Blog tell the story of our last thirty-six hours.  

The day started with a cultural performance in the village of Meinypil'gyno, followed by Gray Whale watching, then Belgua watching, some Spoonbilled Sandpiper viewing and finally an evening with Walrus.

Suffice to say, there is literally no other place on the globe that we could have done all of this and had these amazing encounters in the same timeframe.
