Ushuaia – the end of the world

From Buenos Aires I sadly started lonly in order to make the next 3000 Km to Ushuaia. All said, it is dead boring. I thought it can´t be worse than the Aussie dessert. From Buenos Aires I rode over Azul and the hostal La Postal at Jorges place, Vietma, the Peninsula Valdez down South. At Peninsula Valdez I wanted to go to the penguins and sea lions, but in the night it started raining and the gravel roads have been in bad condition. So I thought I am not going there. The side trip to Punta Tombo to the biggest Magelan penguin colony was luckily dry and was worth it. There the penguins walk through your feet – wow that is amazing.
Now the further road was scenicwise very boring and more boring than the Australian dessert. At the further 1500 km it was 4°C and raining and not that what you wish on a motorbike. As I refueled my bike after 600 km riding in the rain I saw 5 caravans at the petrol station and I thought motorbike riders must be crazy. Ushuaia is a part of Argentina, but in between are 200 km Chile. After 2 hours riding and boarder crossing I am in Chile and after 200 km the same thing again and I am in Argentina. How great is it in Europe. With a ferry I went from Chile to Tierra del Fuego, at the moment more Tierra del Frio.
I arrived in Rio Grande and searched after a hostal, because it was bloody cold and it was raining cats and dogs. On the next morning it was blue sky and sunshine. So I took the chance and rode to Ushuaia. Ushuaia welcomed me cloudy, but dry.

Now I am at the most southern city of the world on Tierra del Fuego.
