Recommendation: sailing the Bark Europa to Antarctica

Traveling to Antarctica is a once in a lifetime destination. Okay, so I really want to go back one day but chances are slim. It's very expensive to travel there, not to mention the negative impact that tourism has in that pristine area of the world. We wanted to do the trip right. I wanted to go down on a small boat (less than 100) so that we could do as many landings as possible. Laurent wanted us to 'earn Antarctica' I phrase that I came to know quite well.

Continued (mis)adventures up the Carretera Austral

The next morning we awoke bright and early. I peeked out the tent half expecting to see horses. There were none. We reluctantly packed up and tried to summon up the courage for our day ahead.

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, getting ready for trekking, Part 1

After trekking in El Chalten, we took a bus back to El Calafate. El Calafate kind of sucks but unfortunately it's a major hub in Patagonia and is a gateway to the southern part of Parque Nacional Los Glaciares (El Chalten serves the northern and free part of the park) and you usually have to go there to transfer to other places you want to travel to.
