Ushuaia

The final post from my trip to South American last October. Strange to think how freely we moved about the world just a few months ago.

Ushuaia is the (controversial) southernmost city in the world, located in Tierra del Fuego (or, the land of fires). How bloody romantic does that sound? Visiting had been on my bucketlist for years, since I first spotted it on the world map that I had on my desk as a child. That being said, I didn't know much about the place itself. It's a strange mix of shipping port, tourist town (cruises to Antarctica leave from here), and residential areas.

Torres del Paine

Excuse the radio silence around here lately. I've had to move to another town for work. In the meanwhile, I still need to finish up my posts from Patagonia last October!

The W Trek in the Torres del Paine was amazing; well, apart from the one little fact that we got struck down by food poisoning so badly that we couldn't do the last part. But what we did get to see was possibly some of the best natural scenery I've ever experienced in my life.

Perito Moreno

Perito Moreno is a glacier in Los Glaciares national park, in Patagonia. It's the only stable glacier in the world - all the other ones are receding. Apparently it covers an area larger than the city of Buenos Aires!

El Chalten

El Chalten was our first stop in Patagonia. It's on the Argentinian side, and the base for hiking to Mount Fitz Roy. It was one of the best things I've ever done!
