A pair of adventurous newlyweds honeymoon at the edge of the earth.
Introduction by Haley Beham | Words & Photography by Austin Mann and Esther Havens Mann
When you think of a luxury honeymoon destination, does Antarctica spring to mind? Probably not. Remote, rugged and cold, it’s not exactly the stuff luxury honeymoon dreams are made of. Or is it?
For photographers Austin Mann and Esther Havens Mann, life is defined by extraordinary adventures. Austin is a travel photographer who spends time flying all over the world to test and review Apple’s latest products. Esther is a humanitarian photographer who works on social awareness campaigns in lesser-traveled areas of the world. Together, they have traveled all over the globe, so when it came time to plan their honeymoon, the destination had to be somewhere unique and unexpected.
Austin took the reins on planning with Esther’s only input: “I don’t care where we go, as long as there’s a warm beach.” Was she in for a surprise, or what?
Using their own words and images, Austin and Esther share their unconventional honeymoon experience.
Pro Tip! Invest in a pair of UV filtering glacier glasses. The leather flaps on the sides will stop the light from passing through and give you the best view of the Antarctic glaciers. - Elizabeth Frels, Luxury Travel Expert
