Antarctica Voyage on Ocean Nova and Patagonia journey

We had an unbelievable vacation this winter. We made a 20 thousand mile trip across half of the world. We had 15 stops in 27 days in Argentina, Chile and at several Antarctic Islands. We crossed all three natural passages between Atlantic and Pacific oceans including the Magellan Channel, Beagle Channel and Drake Passage, and washed our hands in waters of each of them. We landed at Cape Horn and saw two oceans simultaneously. We saw many beautiful lakes, rivers, waterfalls and glaciers in the National Parks, a lot of wild animals and birds on islands and roads, and magical Patagonian sunsets. But the strongest impression of the trip was Antarctica. It was a very heavy trip. We came back home just before New Years, and slept for several days. Fortunately, it was on New Year's holiday. We are still now under the impression of these amazing travels. But we are already thinking about a new trip.
