Retrace Andrew's Journey

5 Weeks, 2 Continents

Relive the adventures of Nat Geo's Digital Nomad (@WheresAndrew), who recently took a transatlantic journey from Cape Horn to the Cape of Good Hope. Along the way, Andrew revisited Nightingale Island to check on its recovery from an oil spill, photographed penguins on South Georgia Island, and reported on the death of the President of Malawi while in the country working with a Save the Children program.
