The Southernmost Place I Have Ever Visited

That would be the Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina that I visited in February 2014. It is still a few hundred miles north of Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, but it is already “more South” than the tip of South Africa and New Zealand.

A detailed post with beautiful photos and more information about this amazing Glacier can be found here.

This is what I wrote right after returning from the trips two years ago… It was an exciting experience. How time flies! Looking forward to returning to South America in the near future.

I am back!

So I haven’t posted anything on my blog for a while. It was not that I ran out of things to write about, rather, I was too busy traveling. 🙂 Just edited the ‘Travel’ and ‘About me’ pages to reflect the new additions – 1 country, 2 national parks, and 4 airports.

I spent 10 days in Argentina – Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Cueva de las Manos, Mount Fitz Roy, and the Perito Moreno Glacier. Each place has its own charm. Just when I admired a beautiful scene and smiled and thought it couldn’t get any better, the next wonder would prove me wrong. There are so many things to write about and so many photos to share that I don’t even know where to begin. I will just show one photo for now and leave the rest to future posts.

After a wonderful and eventful road trip (more on this later), I flew from El Calafate to Buenos Aires to Houston to Washington DC and was welcomed by 8 inches of snow on my driveway. I didn’t bother to shovel since I could only stay home for 14 hours. Had to board another plane early next morning to London on a business trip. Thus I flew ~11,300 miles in about 50 hours, and I was in three continents within 3 days. Good thing that I tend to sleep a lot on the plane – be it a 3-hour or 10-hour flight, day time or night time, I slept thru at least half of it. What a blessing!

Now that I will be home for a while, the regular posts will resume. Can’t wait to share more of my adventures. 🙂
