Travel Blogs from Ushuaia
Today we went on an organised a tour out to the National Park – Parcque Nacional Tierra del Fuego. Wow it was super touristy, first stop was for you to get on a little train to take you to the edge of the national park – 14km. It is a little steam train built in in 1980. However the significance of it is that it follows the route of the …
After rushing and almost missing my flight in Buenos Aires I finally made it to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.
