Antarctica

If you think it's cold here, spare a thought for poor David Beckham. 

The retired footballer is currently making his way through seven matches on all seven continents – and his latest match took place in Antarctica. 

David is taking part in the challenge as part of his duties as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, and he's been keeping his loyal fans updated on his journey via Instagram. 

Yesterday he shared a snap of him getting ready for the football match in the icy weather. He sure looks cosy though, wrapped in a big red coat and hat.

He later posted another photo, capturing the stunning backdrop of where his match took place.

David's journey has already seen him play games in Nepal and Papua New Guinea. 

He was also seen taking time out of his UNICEF duties to play with the children of the shantytowns he visited. 

Speaking of his epic challenge, Mr Beckham told the BBC, "I remember sitting on a plane and discussing this idea with friends and never thinking it would become a reality."

Nothing beats sipping a delicious cocktail while on holiday, but these places may give your normal destinations a run for their money.

Subsix in the Maldives
Subsix is the world’s first ever underwater club. Not only is it located 19 feet below the surface of the Indian Ocean, it also boasts a 300-label wine list.

Icebar in Sweden
You can enjoy a cold beer 124 miles north of the Arctic Circle. You won’t want to forget your gloves at this bar as everything is made from ice.

Boabab Tree Bar in South Africa
This bar is located in the largest baobab tree in the world. The tree has a hollow centre and the van Heerden family thought this was the perfect setting for a narrow pub. It even has a sound system installed.

Vernadsky Station Lounge in Antarctica
This is the world’s most southern bar and is the only place to get a drink in Antarctica. It’s not even that pricey – you can order homemade vodka shots for just $3.

Fancy a wedding with a bit of a difference? Well, you may get some inspiration from this particular photo.

When Susanne Grieve and Jeff Rawson said “I do” they were surrounded not by family and friends but rather 250 penguins.

The couple tied the knot last week inside SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. With conditions below freezing, it’s not surprising that the pair sported snow boots for the occasion.

While it might be a very unusual way to celebrate your big day, there is a reason behind the whole thing.

The couple are both explorers and they actually met in Antarctica back in 2012. See, now it’s starting to make sense.

Grieve said: “Antarctica is such a beautiful and intense environment. When you experience that with someone, the bond you create is rare. Having our wedding here at SeaWorld in this realm that so perfectly captures the essence of the continent brought me right back to the day Jeff and I met.”
