When the end of the World is not far enough

Posted by on December 27, 2012

Ushuaia is a cool sort of spot for Christmas. We’ve had a few nice days here, and been keeping an eye on the various travel agencies in town offering last-minute deals to the Antarctic. We spotted one particular deal that we decided we could not pass on, so we are setting sail on the high seas again, this time heading south from Ushuaia, destination: Antarctica!

As you can imagine, we will be off-line for a few weeks, so tune in again in the new year to see how we got on. Wishing everyone a happy new year, hopefully somewhere warmer than where we will be!

Merv and Sarah.

but not Moglander, the truck was too big to squeeze into our luggage for the trip 🙁

    My Dear Old Things,
    Definitely the right decision. If you’d have passed it by you would have regretted it for the rest of life and you’d probably have been thinking about a missed opportunity for the rest of your trip. It’s a no brainer and you’ve got the ideal headgear to boot!
    Looking forward to the pics already.
    Take care guys.
