U: Ushuaia, often referred to as the southernmost city in the world (Tierra del Fuego, Argentina) and embarkation point if we ever do an antarctic cruise.

Barcelona, we would like to see how the Sagrada Familia has progressed since last visiting it mid 90's, and have lunch in one of the small restaurants behind the market (officially classed as a 'bad area' - but that is not how we experienced it)
