igottacthat :

We are from Sydney and don't know whether it's cheaper to get a RTW ticket and take advantage of going to Los Angeles too or going straight to Buenos Aires or Santiago and then getting to Ushuaia from there. Has anyone done this type of trip? We have looked on the net and can't seem to find a way to get to Ushuaia other than LAN or Arg. Aerolinas. Is there any other way?

"Not that I'm aware of. I flew to B.A. on Aerolineas and then down to Ushuaia....it's not a big airport down there. B.A. is a great place to spend a few days. As I assume (hope) you're going on a cruise 'down south' - have a fantastic time!!!"

For those of us who can only dream of such adventures, we can live vicariously through the travels of Dave Connors. Earlier this month, Dave set out on a ten month journey through two continents, eighteen countries, and approximately 14,000 miles.
