Ultimate Travel Bucket List
Collected by Andi Fisher, AFAR Local Expert
I am not a big believer in bucket lists, but there are some ultra-trips (bigger than you average trip) I'd like to take and these are some of them.
Av. Maipú 505, 9410 Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
Ushuaia, Argentina, feels like the end of the world -- because it basically is. At the southernmost tip of Argentine Tierra del Fuego, it's as far south as you can go without heading to Antarctica. In fact, this is one of the departure points for...
