How was the service that Swoop provided?

Yes I was pleased that I had booked through John again,after my fantastic trip with you to Antarctica. He got me on the first trip out of the season to the Arctic, the crushing of the ice (lots of second and third year ice) was truly amazing . You nursed me through the Russian visa forms,and were always helpful when I had a blonde moment!
