After finally tearing myself away from Buenos Aires I headed north west to Cordoba. It was a nice town and I'm sure it had a lot to offer, but I ended up spending most of the time sleeping and just chatting to people in my hostel. A lot of my time over that period was spent trying to work out how to get my deal to Antarctica. I couldn't head straight for Ushuaia, where the ships sail from as it was high season and nowhere to stay. Also I would have been sitting around for weeks waiting, ...

Once we arrived in Ushuaia it was surprisingly warm, considering how far south we were...I only needed 3 layers instead of my usual 4! We were very lucky with the weather in our time there that's for sure. The first ...
