Our gift to you this Christmas - A NEW VIDEO!! [23rd Dec 15] See below for comments (9)
Merry Christmas everyone!!
In Between getting back from running our Galapagos and Amazon photo safari, an unexpected trip to India and Christmas (tomorrow!!) we have managed to edit together our latest video from our Teleport expeditions!! Enjoy!!
VIDEO UPDATE #26 - Cordova to Yakutat, Alaska, July 2015
Onwards from Prince William Sound and out into the dreaded Gulf of Alaska! The infamously remote Cape Saint Elias for my 32nd Birthday with dolphins, orca etc! Moose in Icy Bay and bodyboarding in Yakutat!
What was our unexpected trip to India you ask?
Traveling India by train few weeks ago, Dick Smith passed a homeless family living under a bridge, including a young girl wearing nothing but a pink bracelet. He snapped some pics on his iPhone, noted down the GPS position, and asked if Jess and I would like to go to India, try and find this same girl & her family, help them into accommodation, secure the girl an education, buy them life's basics and open her a bank account for Dick to regularly deposit into - all in three days! We just got back on Sunday. SHARE this album to spread some Christmas spirit!!!
Our story about India has gone viral - unbelievable - it's generated 72,700 shares on Facebook in less than a week!!
Christmas for us will be at home in Sydney's Northern Beaches with all our family this year, we fly to Germany on boxing day to visit my brother and extended family, closely followed by a month of running photo safaris in Kenya.
We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2016!
Jess and Chris

Those birds at the start look like our Shearwaters from Tasmania. When I looked up their migration pattern, it reaches where you were sailing. There a long way from home. (Offensive Comment?)
