Penguins are real in Tierra del Fuego!


⠀ Penguins are real in Tierra del Fuego!
⠀
So we begin with the #AdventureWeekTDF series!
⠀
Today my half of the group started by taking a flight in the morning to Ushuaia to meet the other half. We all boarded a boat to navigate the Beagle canal and learned a little bit about the history of the region by the hand of Ernesto Piana, a recognized archeologist of the region.
⠀
Afterwards, we went to a small refuge in one of the islands for a delicious lunch and followed with a hike that showcased so many amazing views! I can’t wait to share some more of these photos with all of you. Coming soon!
⠀
Finally, we rode a boat to the place they were going to pick us up to take us to Hostería Kaikén, out home for the night, buuut, on the way, our guides from @canal_fun spotted penguins on one of the islands and kindly stopped so we could get off the boat and admire them from up close.
⠀
It’s funny, but until today, I hadn’t quite realized how real they are. It’s kinda dumb, I know, but sometimes these animals feel like unicorns, like something you’d only see in movies or documentaries, but once you see them up close and personal at their own home the experience becomes so much more meaningful and the connection and value they bring to you is truly exhilarating. I can assure you, the reward of working hard to visit your favorite species in their habitat will be much more real and rewarding than you can imagine.
