U'swaia


What is U'swaia? That is Spanish for Ushuaia, Argentina!!

One of the best things about cruising is you get to wake up every morning to a new and exciting city. This cruise included: Buenos Aires, Argentina; Montevideo, Uruguay; Punta Del Este, Uruguay; Puerto Madryn, Argentina; Punta Arenas, Chile; (Cruising Chilean Fjords & Glacier)
Puerto Montt, Chile and ended in Valparaiso, Chile.

Ushuaia, "Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia" Argentina was day 9 of our latest Royal Caribbean cruise, & while we have seen some of the greatest cities on our planet, Ushuaia is one city we can't wait to get back too. While it is considered to be "Fin Del Muendo" (End of the World) Ushuaia is one of those hidden gems that you can't believe you've never heard of...Well, I'd never heard of it...Nor, could I pronounce it for a few days, had it not been for this cruise I doubt I would of ever heard about this city at all. It's rich with history, but I'm not going to bore you with those details, You can go to Wikipedia and look that info up...

If you are an "adrenalin enthusiast" & enjoy practising Nature-related sports, you have reached the right place. Trekking? Fishing? While watching? Rafting to a Glacier? (Don't even get me started on the Food & Wine..I'm just sayin)
Skiing... Yes!! The reason for our return.. Marisol, our tour guide & aka: Ski Instructor invited us to return to the wonderful slopes of Ushuaia... SURE, we said,,, When?
I'm glad we've been blessed with the opportunity to travel & see this great world we live in..
Ushuaia, We'll be back....Soon!
