Hi, I'm Lori, but you can call me Ocean Lori

As an Expedition Guide and Photographer I've traveled all over the world, but stepping foot on Antarctica changed me forever. Since that January day in 2006, I have been committed to sharing simple life lessons inspired by the 7th continent.

I created The Antarctic Experience to bring together a community of like-minded travelers who find Antarctica fascinating, who love learning something new every day, who believe that experiences are the best souvenirs, that animals are great ambassadors for a balanced life, and that it is possible to find extraordinary in the everyday, no matter where you are.

I aim to share Antartica's wild and wonderful wisdom with you, because I believe a place can change your life, even if you've never been there.
