Boston to Ushuaia

On December 7th, 2010, we set out from Cambridge Massachusetts, USA heading for the southernmost city in the wold; Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina. 98 days later, we reached our goal and began the trip north to Buenos Aires, where we’d catch a plane home.

We’ve written daily accounts of the highs and lows of our journey from Day 1 to Day 118 when we finally made it home.

Along the way we covered over 17,000 miles in fourteen countries, saw ruins, volcanoes, poverty, penguins, glaciers, deserts, jungles, and more…

To make it easier for you to check out our trip now that it’s complete, we’ve put together a list of all the entries in chronological order and separated them by country. Check it out! (The last entry of each country and the first entry in the next country are duplicates to make it easy to find everything relating to one country under one heading.)
