The start of my four-flight trip to Ushuaia was as good as anyone could hope for. Getting to the SFO airport was easy, through security -- a breeze. The sunrise was lovely and to top it off, we flew by a rainbow. That's right, my trip kicked off with rainbows! Magic.
My seat mate was also on the same flight plan to Ushuaia and also embarking to Antarctica (different ship than me, though). We chatted over planning, ship options, and photos and hung out during layovers. It was nice to have the same friendly encounter after each landing.
The whole journey was fine. Long and draining, but smooth and went on without a hitch. In sum, here's what I did:
- SFO - LAX: 1.5hrs
- LAX - PTY: 6hrs
- PTY - EZE: 7.5hrs
- EZE - USH: 3hrs
I'm glad that's over.
I'm now in Ushuaia where I will relax and explore for a few days before boarding the ship to Antarctica.
