When in Mendoza, happiness tastes like an old wine

Simple, but happy life tastes like good wine, combined with tasty parilla (Argentinian barbeque), next to thousands of green trees surrounded by imposing mountains, on a sunny but not extremely hot day! This is what we felt when we reached Mendoza after almost 50 hours of travelling by bus from the cold and windy Punta […]

Chasing penguins at the end of the world

Travelling, exploring new cultures and new places, discovering parts of this planet that you didn’t even know they existed before and constantly expanding the knowledge that you have of the world. These are just some of the reasons that pushed us further every day during this year. And it seems that these motives have pushed […]

Trekking the Legendary Torres del Paine

  A legend always needs some specific elements: one or several heroes, an environment who’s against them, a glorious battle and a final victory for the hero. So when we were put in front of a truly legendary trek for a truly legendary mountain, we ought to write our own legend… it goes like this: […]

Fitz Roy & Cerro Torre – the most beautiful mountains in the world

It’s not always easy to make a top of the most beautiful things we’ve seen. If we compare the physical characteristics (altitude, size, depth …) the order comes naturally: the highest mountain/volcano/waterfall, the longest river, the largest cave/lake… But what happens when we have to choose the one we liked the most? Well, we usually […]

Perito Moreno – walking on a river of ice

Blue…deep, intense, unbelievable blue! Do you know what flows continuously, changes its shape constantly, expands as far as you can see and has that mesmerizing color? If your answer was the sea/ocean, you’re correct, but it’s not what I had in mind when I asked that question. That’s the amazing color of one of the […]

Crossing Argentina to Peninsula Valdes

Argentina is HUGE! We have spent a lot of time on the road slowly moving towards South and East on a bus… Just to cross the country from one side to the other one needs a day. But that gives you an amazing perspective on Patagonia and its size, its monotonous and dry landscape… Even […]

Our homey vacation in fairytale Bariloche

Travelling is tiring…exhausting sometimes! I know most of you consider it as a holiday, but it is not at all the same. Travelling is like a full time job: each day you have to plan for the next one (what to do where, means of transportation, accommodation, groceries, cooking…, pack/ unpack, meet new people/ forget […]

Nice Rendez-Vous in Chiloe

We chose to visit Chiloe for its UNESCO churches and nicely colored houses. But what we found there was much more than this: unusual, hard to see fauna, nice flora, unique handcrafts, super friendly and smiling people and yes, of course, the churches and the happily colored buildings. We started in Ancud with the Fuerte […]

Chilling in the middle of the nature

Located in the Chilean Lake District, Pucon is a small town which offers beautiful landscapes and chill, laid-back atmosphere. It is mostly famous for the Villarrica volcano which looms majestically over the city at more than 2800 m, always covered with snow. It is one of the most active volcanoes in Chile, sometimes throwing out smoke. […]

Concha y Toro – the Chilean wine experience

Being in Chile and not visiting a famous winery is like being in France or Italy and … doing the same. We couldn’t miss it! So we did not have too much time to plan our visit ahead, but we just chose one of the few wineries not far from Santiago, open on the Sunday […]
