Flight From BA to Ushuaia
Aerolineas Argentinas flight was mostly over the Atlantic.
Ushuaia (pronounced oo-swy-ya...H is silent in Spanish) is the most southern city in the world. Met fellow shipmate "Blue," 27 year old Brit at the BA Jorge Newberry Airport and we went thru security together as we were on the same plane. We flew to Ushuaia from BA 2 days ago. Breathtaking vistas of the Andes Mountains. Had the local delicacy fresh King Crab and toured the old prison turned into boat/art museum. Yesterday, 5 of us fellow shipmates went on a thrilling hiking tour of the Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire) National Park with Emilio as our driver and guide. Just awesome beyond words. Got up and personal with the Andes.
I am at the Hotel Tierra Leyendas (Land of Legends) writing this blog in a rush to get some photos published. Will write more later. I am going to be picked up soon and taken to the ship. Boarding the Europa @ 5PM today. Yikes! It is here...let the adventure begin! Radio silence from me for 52 days. I am so emotional, tears, smiles, excitement, all at once and then repeat. I love you all! Just realize I couldn't have a better family and group of friends
At BA Airport
Met British shipmate "Blue" at the Jorge Newberry Airport in BA before we both flew on same flight to Ushuaia.
to come back to. I am extremely fortunate and do not take any of you for granted. Best wishes for all of you. Thank you for your interest in following me! Remember windy(dot)com to check on weather/wind down here (they do no allow giving out internet sites on this blog).
Bon voyage! Please light candles for me. I accept and need all prayers! Just remember this is what I want to do and I will be smiling all the way through the next couple of months.
