There are times when the weather seems to be divine. Visiting the Perito Moreno glacier appeared to be one of those days. It was sunny, clear and the ice gave off a beautiful white-blue that I could haven't imagined.

I had signed up for a tour which included:
1. A visit to the vista to watch the glacier calve
2. A boat ride across the lake to view it from the water
3. Equipment and the chance to walk on the glacier

Without of doubt, this was one of the most spectacular things that I have ever seen or experienced. We were lucky enough to see two large pieces fall from the glacier. And walking on the glacier was surreal. I think this is another time when the photos speak for themselves. At the end of the walking tour on the the glacier, we were given whisky on the rocks – 400 year old ones chipped right off the glacier. Cheers!
