Traveling is not only moving from one place to another. It is more than that. Adventure and exploring are part of it and today google reminds us one of the most important explorer in the Antarctic Exploration, Ernst Shackleton, who was borned on a 15th of February in 1874. For us, hotelopers who love traveling around the globe, people like him, who was borned to explore, are an image to respect and imitate.

Ernst Shackleton was an Anglo-Irish explorer, he was a romantic adventurer, who became interested in exploration and joined the Royal Geographical Society while still at sea. After Captain Scott died during an attempt to reach the South Pole in 1912,Sir Ernest Shackleton, , chose to tackle the challenge of Antarctica in a different way. He decided he would attempt to journey across the icy continent from one side to the other via the South Pole. Him, and 3 companions stablished the record of the farthest ever South latitude in 19 and he was knighted for it.
Remember, as Henry Miller once said “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”
