Our trip to Antarctica began in Argentina, took a brief detour through Brazil, then back to Argentina and the tip of South America. We boarded our ship The Ocean Endeavor in the southern-most city in the world, Ushuaia Argentina. Our first stop was the Falkland Islands. We spent a few days there, then headed east to the islands of South Georgia. A few more days were spent there, then we headed south to the Antarctic Peninsula. Eventually we headed home across the dreaded Drake Passage and even did a ceremonial crossing of Cape Horn. The whole trip took about 4 weeks, with almost 3 weeks of it on board the ship.
