I don’t quite know how to put into words the experiences that we have had over the past few days. After literally being blown across the road and nearly off the bike we arrived in Puerto Natales and had a sunset like this.
Then we headed to El Calafate. What a lovely little town… filled with amazing restaurants and great accommodation (Thank you Megs and Matt for the restaurant recommendation… the meat platter was the most tasty meat I have ever eaten).
The next day we went kayaking at Glacier Upsala. They have only just started doing this excursion and we were the fifth group to do it. WOW!!!! Kayaking in ice cold water with massive ice bergs that have calved off from the glacier is something I will never forget.
The kit they gave us to wear was quite something. We had full thermal body suites, gortex suites, boots, life jackets and splashdecks. I can’t imagine how much the kit alone cost. We paddled around for about three hours (Andrew doing most of the paddling and me playing photographer and trying to tell him how to paddle…… poor husband!!!!)
We then camped at the best campsite I have ever stayed at called Lago Roca. They even had heaters in the bathrooms. We made a delicious supper and drank Malbec wine….
Another tough day travelling xxx
