Walking in Patagonia – Tierra del Fuego

๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ทย ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ทย ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท This was a super long day for me. My knee was still not in a great shape . I spent the full day walking in the Iguazu park. I came back to my hostel in the afternoon and then booked a shared transport to the airport. My flight from Puerto Iguazu was at 9.15 PM. I reached BA at 11.30. My flight from BA to Ushuaia was at 11.30 PM so I slept at the airport for few hours. I reached Ushuaia at about 8 AM. Ushuaia airport is very small…

Argentina …. Buenos Aries

๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ทย ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ทย ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท I effectively had one full day to do some sightseeing in Buenos Aries. It was too less to do any justice to this beautiful city. This city is often called Paris of South America. Stunning architecture , side walks and and cafes probably has some similarity but this place has its own rich culture . Unfortunately January is peak summer in BA and it was super hot and humid. My hotel was just opposite to the Obelix and I had a grand view from my window. My flight from Ushuaia was…

Weddell sea and South Shetland Island

17-Jan-2018 - 10AM We are travelling at full speed towards Antarctica sounds. We are expecting to reach there by 12. The wether was cloudy and misty since morning.

So we had to turn back again through Antarctica sound . We passed through huge tabular icebergs floating around in that area. It was almost size of a huge football stadium. It was bit of a wasteful…

Antarctica – Western Peninsula (Part – 1)

We were originally supposed to cross the Antarctic sound to the eastern peninsula but that did not happen due to the weather condition , so we continued further south along the western side of the continent. 13 Jan 2018 Today morning started with a good note. The sky was crystal clear , though it was still very windy. I woke up early and went outside with my camera. Though there was not much wildlife to be seen but outside scenery was stunning . We were essentially going through glacial landscapes , with…

๐ŸฅšEaster break … St. Briavels and Wye valley

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งย ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งย ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง This was one rare exception where I just booked the stay but did not plan anything, hoping others will do it. Nevertheless we arrived very late at Chepstow because lots of planned engineering work was going on M4. Weather was terrible on Friday , it was drizzling all the day. We checked-in at 5.30 and there was nothing else to do for that day. It is not everyday you can stay in a castle that too without breaking the bank. YHA did a fabulous job to maintain and renovate the castle…
