Adventures must be done!

4 Months in a Nutshell - Patagonia & Falkland Islands

Being out there beats writing blogs by a long way, thus no detailed account of those 4 months of adventuring will be provided here in a hurry.
Rather, this condensed picture gallery shall give the interested viewers an overview.

Awesome pictures!
I hope you come back soon! (I would be _really_ offended if you don't post pictures of my place after a second trip!)

My wife and I did the trek from Hill Cove to Port Howard in three days in early 1987 - despite the fact that all the locals thought we were crazy. My own blog has quite a few entries on the Falklands, many more elsewhere in Argentine and Chilean Patagonia.
