Ushuaia, Argentina and Beagle Sound
Ushuaia is the southernmost city of the world; nickname bottom of the world. Just being here is pretty interesting. There is much to do here and a trip around Beagle Channel is one of the best.
The world famouse Les Esclaires Lighthouse is featured on many postcards and travel brochures about these parts.
We saw no beagles. It is named after HMS Beagle, Charles Darwin’s boat used for his research here almost 200 years ago. There were certainly plenty of penguins and sea lions though.
I took my one selfie of the year from our balcony wearing my once a year sweater which is almost always too warm.
