So after sleeping in the most lovely camping site (and nearly freezing my toes off in the middle of the night with my husband sleeping happily with less than half the amount of clothing on and a much thinner sleeping bag) we woke up an hour late… Now this is a bit of a problem when you have booked “The Big Ice” which involves catching a boat across Lago Roca to Perito Moreno Glacier with 5 hours of hiking up to and on the glacier.
So we went into speed mode (which still takes a long time when you have to pack a campsite into a side panier) and we made it to the port with literally a few seconds to spare. I threw off my leathers and half put on my hiking kit and ran (I thought I ran but it probably looked more like a drunken stumble seeing I was half dressed with my laces undone) to the boat trying my bestest sweettalking while Andrew quickly parked the bike and tried to secure our belongings.
So we made it onto the boat with our passports, all our walking kit, sunglasses, lunch, drinks, waterproof kit, sunscreen, a laptop, an iPad, our wallet…. sounds like pretty much everything important EXCEPT our CAMERA and GOPRO.
So as we sail out of the port we look longingly across the ice cold water at our bike with our camera….
So to cut a long story short and after some sad faces my clever husband decides to take the iPad on ICE.
We had a super day and these are some of the shots from the iPad…. must say we got more than a few strange looks from the other hikers when we pulled out our “camera” from under Andrew’s shirt.
