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.

On the bus from Puerto Natales, a 6 hour trip in a very comfortable coach, includes a border crossing into Argentina in an immigration outpost on the steppes with fairly bored officials doing their thing. The ride is mainly through very featureless low grass steppes with some low hills, some occasional sheep and cattle, a couple of hares, a guanaco or two, and a large long necked bird that reminds me of an emu, dont think its a rhea but could be! ...
... follow the guides in a single file line so we didnīt fall in to crystal blue waterfalls or any of the deep crevices all around us. The blue and white shades of ice were extremely intense and sometimes almost blinding.

Due to our nervous nature, the three of us had only signed ...
... other guests cooking with us. Including a strange guy who travels with his mum and eats about 30 boiled eggs every evening. Today since it is a special evening they are also having about 20 hot dogs. Anyway our dinner consists of 6 steaks and linguine with a fresh tomato sauce. We bought 3 steaks (bife de chorizo to be precise) in one shop and then thought that they look a little small and just to be sure that we don’t starve on New Year’s Eve we bought some more. ...
... a lovely tale behind them is something I have particularly fallen in love with, while South American geometric paintings and weavings are now a new favourite in place of my original Turkish Fantasy when we set out on this trip. However again, while reading the stories behind the local arts, it is difficult not to feel this constant sense of being in a place where the spiritual and the visible are constantly intertwining. From the fable rich eyes of local women in the stores, to ...
... my friends, yes we have. And those were my thoughts as well. Glaciers and us don't seem to work out so well. However, never ones to give up, after our heli-hike was cancelled at the Fox Glacier we had vowed to do it in El Calafate. We had heard fantastic things about a trek called "Big Ice" so off we went to book. Unfortunately it was fully booked up for a week. No can do. Our bad luck continues! But hang on, they do have space on the Minitrek. It's ...
