Over the last few weeks I have been writing about our incredible trip to Patagonia. The culmination of the trip was a visit to Isla Magdalena to see the Magellanic Penguins. On the day we arrived there were about 30,000 penguins on the island. During other times of the year there can be upwards of […]

Galloping With The Gauchos

Our first adventure was a gorgeous 20-mile horseback ride through some beautiful landscape. It was quite an adventure with many wonderful experiences but also with many challenges and perhaps even a Romance Novel Fantasy.

We boarded the Stella Australis in the afternoon and after a delicious dinner and my first taste of the local cocktail Pisco Sours (yum-yum) I turned in for the […]

It is the southernmost city in Chile. In my first 24 hours there I was already involved […]
