So our adventure has now well and truly begun... We set off from the UK on Monday night and arrived in Buenos Aires today (Tuesday) after a 14 hour flight. We then took another, shorter flight to Ushuaia, where we are currently staying the night.
This was the view from the plane as we landed in Ushuaia - hopefully a taste of the stunning views to come.
Our kit took up 4 trolleys in Ushuaia. Here Andrew is waiting with Tudor Morgan (Antarctic Heritage Trust) and all the kit at the airport in Buenos Aires.
This my new favourite hat! A leaving present from my brother which I love and will be making my lucky mascot. Andrew is less keen... It's been approved by people I've met at the the airport though and should keep me warm! :D
We aim to set sail tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, if the weather stays on our side. We will be sailing on the yacht Pelagic and I hope to be able to update you with our journey as it progresses.
