About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

CHILE, Puerto Natales to Ushuaia, ARGENTINA

 December 26, 2010.     (ARGENTINA,  Ushuai)

I caught the 7:30 am bus to Ushuai from Puerto Natales,  Chile.  About 6 hours of this journey was on gravel/dirt highways. We also had one ferry crossing.  I arrived at 7:30 pm and located the FREE Style Hostel. Checked the nearby travel agency looking for inexpensive, last minute Antarctica trip. I was told to check back tomorrow.

I was waiting for an opportunity to do the January 1st cruise to Antarctica for $3149 but it seems someone else booked the last spot. I decided to go the the December 28th departure for  $3990. Not happy about it but much less than the typical cost of $10,000. It is a "Once in a lifetime experience ".  I also booked a $197 flight from Ushuai to Buenos Aires on my return. The flight is 4 hours and the bus to Buenos Aires was 50 hours AND $250. NO BRAINER. Antarctica departure tomorrow.
