Margy and I were off on another adventure and boy, it takes long to get to the ends of the earth! We had a great time on mainland Chile and Easter Island!
Our Awesome Argentina trip (Buenos Aires to Ushuaia to El Calafate) was truly awesome. World class capital, amazing scenery & penguins at the end of the world, a once in a lifetime glacier walk. Great guides, interesting people, wonderful food.
Itís February school vacation week, and most of our friends have been indulging in pedicures and manicures for trips to the Caribbean and Florida. Though we are not glamorous, we are happy, happy, happy because we are going to tour Patagonia today.
Patagonia Trip: Truly the trip of a lifetime - rugged mountain ranges, beautiful river valleys, impressive glacial basins, and charming mountain towns - Patagonia is my kind of place!
South America Trip: We spent about a week in Buenos Aires, touring the barrios and sights. We then embarked on the Patagonia Panorama 14d Adventure and finished it off with a couple of days in Santiago Chile.
This was our first trip with Adventure Life. I think it wonít be the last. We wanted to go to Cape Horn, to visit the famous Torres del Paine park of Patagonia, and the Argentine glaciers; a lot! Adventure Life let us do it all within 2 weeks.
We did "Awesome Argentina" and experienced an invigorating mix of outdoor trekking/glacier hiking combined with an active tour of fascinating Buenos Aires. The guides were super great, and we found many interesting sights on our own as well.
With help from our friends at Adventure Life we experienced much of Argentina. From the restaurants and cafes of Buenos Aires to the natural beauty of Patagonia, the Perito Moreno glacier and the Iguazu Falls we fell in love with the country.
First to Buenos Aires, then to Ushuaia at the bottom of the continent where we hiked and visited a penguin colony. Next to El Calafate where we stayed on a sheep ranch, visited a glacier in Glacier National Park, and went for a great horseback ride.
Antarctica, Ushuaia, Patagonia, Buenos Aires, Estoncia, Rio - all fabulous!
