The Beautiful Ushuaia
Antarctica Adventure with Sea Kayaking

Picture-Perfect UshuaiaPicture-Perfect Ushuaia (Cynthia Isaf)
We traveled to Ushuaia
A place we had never been before
All we knew was that it was at the tip of Argentina
And the place that we were to begin our Antarctica tour

Flying into this beautiful city
Our family gasped, for as far as we could see
Were snow-capped mountains, and a town so colorful and quaint,
A picture perfect village by the sea

We woke up early the next day
Excited for this trip that was finally going to be
The Aurora staff welcomed us to the Polar Pioneer
And we would soon begin our much awaited journey

Anchors Away!! the loudspeaker announced
And I'm sure our leaders saw 51 passengers smile
We had a most informative and "cozy" lifeboat drill
Then, off to the bar for "welcome" drinks and to talk for a while

We all came together for a briefing
And were introduced to our staff for the next 11 days on the sea
The Captain and his crew were from Russia,
Our leaders and kitchen staff were Kiwis and Aussies
