I am finally getting around to writing about the details of my trip to Antarctica. It's in order of each stop, all the way through returning to Ushuaia at the end of the trip and flying to Buenos Aires. I've written a summary already, but this is more in detail with a ton more photos of each stop.
I took a ton of video as well, so if you're actually interested in seeing more photos, let me know and I can share more photos and videos. Otherwise, all these are still photos I took with my iPhone, my Canon SX720 HS pocket camera, and my Canon EOS Rebel T7i (with several lenses). Due to the snow and just the overall nature of the trip, I had to get a new Canon pocket camera (same one) and a new iPhone when I came back to the US. The Canon pocket camera died (lots of water in it) and I upgraded my iPhone (which means I lost some numbers :-). I would not take the Rebel out if there was a chance of rain/snow in order to protect my gear.
So here is my story... enjoy!
I wrote about Ushuaia earlier this year in greater detail, while I was still in Ushuaia actually, so this is a condensed version of my time there. Here we go...
I arrived to Ushuaia days before my boat to Antarctica left in order to explore the town a bit. I had the opportunity to go to Tierra Del Fuego by train, enjoy Argentinian BBQ, and walk through town enjoying all the sites.
A day before my boat left, I met Laurie. I've written about Laurie before in more detail. The way our trip was structured, we meet our cabin mates the day before we leave on the boat, so we have time to get acquainted. Laurie and I hit it off and we hung out most of the day after she arrived. The morning of our departure, we left our luggage in the lobby and continued to explore the town. Laurie had a chance to do a tour so she left, and I stayed behind to continue enjoying the city. We met up at 3pm and headed to the port to embark on our adventure! Somehow, Laurie and I got separated and I arrived to our cabin first and had the chance to take pictures of our cabin. It was amazing to be among so many people and receive champagne as I walked on to the boat. Watching Ushuaia become smaller and smaller was beautiful as the sun began to set.... off to my adventure!
Have passport, will travel.
