    Definitely our favorite place we had stayed after a month in South America. Online reviews complained about its location. We didn't think the walk was bad. The place's charm and Adriana's hospitality easily outweigh any concerns about the location anyways. Super comfortable room and legitimately hot shower at all times. Adriana's homemade treats were the star of the show though. I highly recommend staying here.

    ... the day in Calafate. After changing my bus to Chile, changing my hostel booking for Chile and rebooking my tour I decided to climb the mountain behind Calafate. Along the way I collected five street dogs who came right to the top with me. At the top it was so windy I had to crawl! I found a small rock to shelter behind while I ate lunch and enjoyed to view, while the dogs waited patiently. Once back in the town the dogs all went their separate ways home and I went back to ...

    ... it was already 12pm when they left, and this stretch - with its westerly turns - was famous for horrific headwinds. After 40 kilometres of tailwind, they caught up with Bernardo, a very bubbly Spanish hairdresser who was good company, but who was desperate - through his laddish banter and constant sexual innuendo - to prove to us he wasn't gay. When we turned into a horrific headwind on the Ruta 40, John suggested five minutes each riding on the front - this was long enough to make ...

    Preparing for glaciers and trekking in the wilds

    ... closing in it was downward for five hours. I admit to struggling to the point the very fit Canadian, Charles, eight months younger than I, volunteered to take my pack which was a real kindness. He kept me going with diversionary talk about cars which some may wonder about given my previous disinterest in anything on 4 wheels! But the conversation helped when the next brow was gained only to see another re the distance. 18 kilometres completed but On reaching the ...

    ... the pros and cons of the Torres del Paine W Trek.

    After a couple of drinks, we took a walk down the main drag to find a restaurant for dinner and ended up near the end of the street at Maca, which seemed to specialise in grilled meat. We shared some morcilla (blood sausage) for starters, for mains David ordered the lamb cooked whole over the wood fire while Maria stuck with a standard steak. The meal was served at the table on a ...

    Across a Hill Upon a Blue Lake

    A travel blog entry by gavin_davies on Oct 29, 2014

    After breakfast the four of us headed for the lake and started walking along one of it's sides. The water is a beautiful tourqiouse colour I don't think I've seen anywhere else. When the clouds shifted to reveal the snowcapped mountains behind it, it was quite a spectacular vista. In a lot of ways it reminds me of NZ but on a grander scale. We continued walking, deciding to climb a nearby ...
