After experiencing the spirit of Buenos Aires, the trade winds will sweep you out to visit some of the remotest communities in the world. First Tristan da Cunha and then on to St Helena – one of the most isolated islands in the world. For centuries St Helena has been an important stopover for ships sailing to Europe from Asia and South Africa. The British also used the island as a place of exile, most notably for Napoleon Bonaparte, where he died in 1821. From there you will head to Ascension, equally remote but renowned for being a safe haven during the days of international travel by flying boats in the early 20th century. Your final destination will be Recife, named after all the coral reefs that are present by the city’s shores. Although it is a major Atlantic port, Recife is also known as the ‘Brazilian Venice’ because of its many rivers, small islands and over 50 bridges found within the city.
