Mirador Torres del Paine

August 2, 2015

end of the hike was promising the second best view of the cuernos. we arrived up there after a steep hike, rather windy, took my time to find a location and this is the only picture i managed to take before a sudden mist follow by snow kicked in. it snowed all night long till […]

Torres del Paine – the W hike

July 30, 2015

the famous hike around Torres del Paine , the “W hike” due to its shape is about 90km long, takes 5 days of moderate hike, sure it could be done in 4 as well. the treks are so nicely marked i really cannot understand why some hikers had a guide with them. anyone that likes […]

Torres del Paine

July 22, 2015

i’ve been obsessed with Torres del Paine ever since childhood when i read “Toate panzele sus!” (sails up) with Speranta crew’s(Hope’s) adventures around the Tierra del Fuego, the name was just inspiring. some years later when i’ve seen a sunset picture of the cuernos i knew i will end up there sooner or later, even […]

El Chalten

July 1, 2015

the home of the Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre hikes, El Chalten lays few hours away from El Calafate. along the route you get to see the Fitz Roy closer and closer driving the last kilometres in a agonising slow speed, believing after each next curve the famous view will lay ahead. the weather hasn’t […]

La Boca

June 25, 2015

a long overdue post…the start of the Patagonia series. Patagonia is far…very far far away…it took us about 38hrs of flying, including an 11 hrs layover in Buenos Aires. I wish i’d have more to say about Buenos Aires but we haven’t seen too much of it as on 25th December everything is closed. As […]
