Antarctica Trip – Feb 2008

posted in: Continents, Traveling | 0

At the very beginning of our unique Running Without Borders life
We decided to step foot on the Antarctic Continent
and up to today its still the highlight of our Journey .

Yet if we had planned 6 months in advance
all went wrong in Buenos Aires
when early in the morning at Jorge Newbery International Airport
we learned that our tickets have been canceled
and our names removed from passengers list due to Credit card Payment Failure .

Disappointed and upset 4 days later in middle of the night unable to sleep
I found 2 seats available to Ushuaia which I booked right away
even if the Backpacker we were staying at had an unsecured Internet Connection .

Happy as ever, we double checked with Airline and finally made to the Promise land
where in less than a couple of Days we found 2 last minute berths for the next boat to Antarctica .
