    The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

    ... This arrangement turned out to be aimed at stopping people leaving if the custom's office is not happy.
    We presented the paper work given to us by the Air Freight company with all 7 stamps from 3 Government departments only to be turned away in bewilderment! Over the next 4 hours we learned that we should have had a "Temporary Import Permit" for each bike. It would have been nice of the Customs office at Tucomen Airport to advise us that ...

Unfortunately even though drunk he asked to see the island. Frank fessed up but said how about I give you $1k a year for 7 years and you pretend you've seen the corn. This guy agreed and visited every year to get drunk with Frank and collect his money. After 7 years and $7700 Frank owned the island and gave it to his daughter for her ...

    ... tickets. He turned to spoke to an older border official at the back of the office and told him that we were with him and he was being held up. The bus driver then guided us towards a window where the older official sat down and told us just to hand our passports over. Without another question, or buying the flights, our passports were just stamped within seconds and handed back to us. The driver then escorted us, with our bags, into the customs hall and we were just waved back ...

    ... several coffee plantations, we enjoyed an aromatic coffee break at this quiet and peaceful location. We also tried the cappuccino, which is excellent. It had been prepared with fresh,creamy and slightly sweet milk. Using high quality milk and water is important for making delicious cappuccino.

    When we continued our walk back to the town center, we noticed a milk factory across the road. What a coincidence :-).

The last bar we went to was Mike’s Grill run by an American couple who met at the South Pole while working there for 3 & 5 years at the research centre. They had actual flags flown at the ...
