Patagonia South America

The Patagonia region of South America is known for it’s desolate wide open plains, granite peaks, glaciers, rivers, and extreme weather conditions. Patagonia has the fewest number of inhabitants, and is located in the most southern reaches of the continent shared by Chile, and Argentina.

I flew from Buenos Aires to El Calafate, and slowly made my way down via bus through Torres Del Paine, Puerto Natales, Punta Arenas, and Ushuaia.

Eating lots of Calafate berries. Myth says if you eat this fruit, you will return to Patagonia

My favorite part was hanging out with new friends cooking in the kitchen!

Ushuaia, Argentina

Border crossing from Chile into Argentina. Our bus takes a car-ferry across the channel. It was an 11 hour bus ride from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia, and it’s a great way to see the southern most region of Patagonia.

Empanadas, Cazuelas, and lots of Beef! Oh and some Taiwanese street food.
