Miriam Higgins

Polar Travel Adviser

I am originally from Holland, fluent in 4 different languages and have been in the travel business for over 15 years as a Senior Travel Adviser. A true globetrotter, I’ve traveled the world since I was 2 years old. I am super excited to go to Antarctica with Quark Expeditions for my biggest adventure yet, and to meet some of the most adventurous Expedition Leaders in the world.

If you haven't visited the polar regions, what are you most looking forward to experiencing in the polar regions?

The breathtaking views, kayaking with the whales, and possibly taking the Polar Plunge?

What advice would you give someone traveling to the polar regions?

Expect to weep from pure joy, dress warm, and have lots of space on your camera’s memory cards!

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from traveling?

To love and embrace all cultures. Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer and beats any other education!
