We have touched down in Ushuaia, and everyone is in good spirits. I’m pleased to report that we made it without any serious injuries or lost baggage! In Buenos Aires we were treated to some seriously meaty cuisine and have had ample opportunity to practise our Spanish.
The flight into Tierra del Fuego and the southern-most city of the world Ushuaia, was a feast for the eyes, as we glided over the sharp peaks of mountains spotted with snow, rivers and crater lakes. The air is crisp, refreshing and not too cold, and the sun is beaming down.
We are all spending our down time preparing for the voyage ahead, excited to get on board the vessel tomorrow. A few of us have taken a stroll through the quaint town shops and along the waterfront.
Ushuaia is known as ‘El Fin Del Mundo’, ‘the end of the world’, as it’s the southern-most city in the world and departure point for Antarctic voyages.
