The time goes by and I don’t have enough personal space to write in this blog. It is crazy how life changes and how many things are thrown at you.

That being said, recently I helped a friend with some format problems, and I thought it was a perfect excuse to prepare a new blog post.

Shackleton – Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition Map

Recently I’ve been reading Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage. On the whole book they describe its current position, movement, etc.. but it’s difficult for me to understand certain positions on the poles. Also, the history is so astonishing that it deserved a cool map.

There are some maps of the Imperial Trans-Antartcic Expedition: http://www.kodak.com, http://www.wgbh.org, coolAntarctica, and a long etcetera. But I wanted to play a little bit.
