... and buses, taxis, trucks, boats, animals, and more! (Oh my!)

I've traveled to all the continents except Antarctica, and been as far south on them as possible: I took a voyage on the Beagle Channel, drove along The Cape of Good Hope (almost the bottom of South africa), hiked on Stewart Island (south of the south island of New Zealand), and visited many parts in between. Getting there is not half the battle, it is the battle. This set of images highlights some of these modes of transportation I have taken. They range from the mundane taxi ride or airplane, to small planes in bad storms, buses breaking down as the temperature drops from the day high in the 60s to below freezing, bullet trains that reach over 200mph, to horses and carts. I think you ge the picture. Not only is getting there "the battle", but it is also the adventure!
