To the "end of the world" and back. My sister and I started the trip with a stay over in Buenos Aires before taking a flight to Ushuaia. Together we hiked and kayaked through Tierra del Fuego. We set foot on Cape Horn and an island inhabited only by penguins. Together, we sailed the Straits of Magellan; we learned about the history of Patagonia: the indigenous people, plants, animals, explorers, wars, politics and the people of today. We tasted foods and drank wine and beer of the region. Finally, we trekked the W circuit of Torres del Paine. A promise was made between my sister and I - that we would travel to the end of the world together. That promise was filled with our Patagonia trip. The experience of being in such a beautiful place, together, as we promised so many years ago, was unforgettable. Life is too short to miss out on all the beauty the world has to offer.
