It Begins at the End of the World

Just starting the journey to the 7th continent is a journey in itself.  Most of the ships traveling there start from the Southern tip of Argentina from a town called Ushuaia which used to be a penal colony.   A remote place, but since the ships use the port to resupply and pick up most of the passengers, it has grown into a thriving town.  From here, it is roughly a 2 day journey to reach the South Shetlands, a group of islands just to the north of the Antarctica Peninsula.
