The Drive North – RN3, Argentina

The Drive North – RN3, Argentina

Driving north from Ushuaia on RN3 was really just an exercise in keeping ourselves entertained.  3,094 kilometers to Buenos Aires in five days isn’t really that bad, but the straight roads, relentless headwinds, and never changing scenery meant we had to keep...

Ushuaia, The Southernmost City in the World

Upon leaving Puerto Natales we realized that literally within several days we would arrive at the end of the road: Ushuaia, Argentina. Despite this fact, we still had close to 1,000 kilometers to go. A quick boat ride from Punta Delgada across the narrowest section of...

A Bit of Brazil

A Bit of Brazil

It’s not all samba and football in Brazil you know, there’s other good stuff too! Last time we came to Brazil it was for a Caipirinha-fuelled 24 hr stop-over in Río with the freight-ship on our way to Uruguay. Now we’re zipping in from Bolivia to see a different...

El Chaltén and Mt Fitz Roy

[[After a small blog-detour to Bolivian market, we’re back in Patagonia. Last time, we left Chile and crossed the border to Argentina. Carretera Austral is, unfortunately, basically a dead end road – there is no road connecting it’s end in Villa...
