A lifetime dreaming about a visit to Antarctica and South America was to be realised in 2020. After 18 months of planning the anticipation and excitement levels were high as tourists entered the aircraft for Argentina, both were relaxed and looking forward to what lay ahead. Five days into the trip and one day before entering the boat for the Antarctica adventure it all suddenly changed. Travel restrictions and border closes began in response to the World Health Organisation’s declaration that COVID-19 was a world pandemic. A time of uncertainty and confusion faced decision makers. Understandingly countries were looking after themselves and their citizens, tourists concerns relegated in importance. The race was on to escape from the isolation of Ushuaia on the Southern tip of South America to a main international airport and then back to Australia. In this book Jane N. Hughes provides a personal insight into experiences she and her husband faced as fleeing tourist in this unusual situation.
