The Weekly travels south to Antarctica

The Weekly recently went on a big trip with readers Eunice and Tim Peterson as they celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary. 

To start the trip the Petersons cruised to Antarctica at 64 degrees, 48 minutes SOUTH of the Equator on February 9, 2019. That was where they celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary on the cruise on February 14th.

Their two week trip took them from Buenos Aires, Argentina down to Ushuaia, Argentina, which is known as “The End of the World” at the very southern tip of Argentina. They then cruised south across the Drake Passage to the Antarctic peninsula where their farthest south point was Paradise Bay. Eunice used Google Maps on her phone to create a map screen shot of where they were located. The couple then cruised north to the Falkland Islands, Puerto Madryn, Montevideo, Uruguay and back to Buenos Aires, ArgentinaAbove are Eunice and Tim during their trip to Ushuaia, Argentina. Eunice told the Weekly, “It was a trip of a lifetime and a great adventure.”
