In April 2015, I ventured out on a trip without money and only on the basis of the ride to leave Curitiba and reach UshuaiaAt Argentine Patagonia. It took almost 40 days, covering more than 6 kilometers with the help of 30 different rides.

I spent a few days in El Calafate, and then proceed to the Perito Moreno Glacier. A park that is approximately 1h30 by car from the city of El Calafate. The main attraction of the park are the many different walkways overlooking the incredible and gigantic glacier.

The tip is to set aside a whole day to enjoy this spectacle of nature. If you want to walk on the glacier, you will need to close the tour first, in the city of El Calafate. #ficadica

Another essential stop in Patagonia Argentina is El Chalten, the trekking capital of the world. For me, this was the most beautiful place I visited during this trip. There were almost seven days there and many records of such natural beauty. However, to enjoy the tours there, it's essential to have your own hiking shoes – don't go unprepared, huh?

Finally, I came to Ushuaia, located on the edge of the Beagle Channel. Known as the “end of the world”, the city is the southernmost in the world and was my last destination… on this trip.

To inspire you to leave the house and hit the road to the southern end of South America, I selected a sequence of the best photos taken along the way to Patagonia.

Travel Insurance is ESSENTIAL

How to have unlimited internet while traveling

Just ask for an international cell phone chip at America Chip. We always use and love it! They send a SIM card to your address in España, you insert it in your cell phone when you arrive at your destination and you have unlimited internet throughout the trip.

5) Rent cars at the best prices

Where to Rent: RENTCARS

We really like RentCars to find the cars we use on our travels. It is the only one in Spain that compares the best rental companies in the world, but lets you pay in reais, without IOF. In addition, it is also the only one that lets you pay in 12 interest-free installments. It is worth it!

#Here's a tip: Try to find cars with full car and third party insurance coverage. Thus, you avoid inopportune surprises when picking up the car.

Also, be very smart when closing with other car rental comparisons. That's because prices are usually charged in dollars and close with your card. If the dollar goes up, the price of your car rental goes up too.
