A travel blog entry by tbienek

El Calafate is a georgous little place. Very reminiscent of the alpine villages of Europe.

... we finally got to our fishing destination. The winds were okay. However, as we started spin fishing at Lago Roca, the wind picked up and the only thing that happened was me screaming because the waves were splashing all over me. No fish, just wind.
