Obviously. Would you even going to the antarctic to see the penguin life? Who knows how long this continent still lasts.


Kallisto what’s up man :smile: the continent that I’ve been to no surprise Asia the continent that I like the most must be America some amazing countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay can be visited a mix of Spanish and Portuguese culture. Holidays are the thoughts that come to mind when thinking of a continent. Antartica wins for me always wanted to know how cold it is and what relations does it have to something such as the snow and cold. Penguins and Polar Bears are cute it’s an indecisive choice between both.

Asia is the continent with many different climates and vegetation. And it is the birthplace for civilization (fertile crescent in Arabia counts to it). That is why my choice is not the European, but the Asian continent.

Do you intend going to Antartic very soon?

Why be interested in Antarctica, it's nothing but ice, no people, civilization, nothing to do.

I've been to Europe, Asia and Africa. I find Asia the most interesting because of it's diversity throughout, i.e the differences in the society and culture of it's countries throughout, I find many continents to lack that diversity diversity North America is very white and westernized (bar Mexican culture).

When I think of Asia I think of the beautiful nature, in India particularly, and also indian people and cities. I'm very intrigued by India, it's very big and exciting and the extraordinary nature (landscape and animals) If only there was less Islamophobia 😔

Artic. Nothing to do in Antarctica

I love both, but maybe polar bears.

More time to yourself compared to UK where you don't always get much free time due to working.
They have a better lifestyle to work ratio as you have more time to do things. Depends on what job you do they seem to have a good balance for people

Better weather all year round.
Although they are a expensive country for buying stuff they more than make it up with a far better pay.

What can be done in the Arctic? There is also ice around and just a handful people live there, if any.

Polar bear watching, whale watching, dog snow sledding, Northern Light seeing. Plenty of things to do ☺️ Glad I could be of assistance.
