Back in Ushuaia and off to the airport
We were up early to get our passports from the ship’s reception desk. They held on to everyone’s passport while we were on the ship.
After breakfast we were given our boarding passes by a Quark’s Ushuaia representatives.
On our way to get our belongings out of our cabin, we noticed this message from our kayak guides. We were so glad that we were part of this special group!
Buses took us from the ship dock to the airport.
We had three hours until our flight. Many of the people on our ship were also on our flight from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires. So we chatted and did some reading in the airport. Our flight was 3 1/2 hours to the airport in Buenos Aires. We again had several hours before our overnight flight to Atlanta, Georgia. The sky was really clear when we took off from Buenos Aires.
We went through customs in Atlanta and then had time to get from the international concourse to the concourse for our flight to Columbus! Twenty four hours of being in airports and planes was long enough for us. We were thankful our flights were on time and went smoothly!
This trip was an incredible adventure and we highly recommend experiencing the 7th continent. Our words and pictures don’t adequately portray the splendor and beauty of the wildlife and landscape of Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands
We look forward to more traveling adventures and sharing them with you!
