Updates from Toronto and Miami (Buenos Aires bound!) 

Please note, updating social media is almost instantaneous, so if you’re ever anxious for updates, check our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
After months of waiting the day is finally here! The SOI Antarctic 2014 expedition has officially kicked off, and our phenomenal team is slowly growing and coming together, with one group congregating in Toronto (bound for Buenos Aires tonight), and another group amassing in Miami, with plans to meet up with the Toronto group in Buenos Aires tomorrow.
Our team consists of 66 students and 23 staff from 14 different countries! Over the next few days, we will be providing expedition updates here in the ‘Follow the Expedition’ section of our website. We’ll be posting student and staff journal entries along with photos and updates.
Stay tuned!
In the expedition spirit,
The SOI Team
