My day by day account of this much awaited holiday is now live on CHILE & PATAGONIA.

This diary of the much awaited travel through Chile and Argentine Patagonia starts here. My experiences of this tour could be a reference point for you at a later date. Ask me if you have questions.

We just wanted to travel light through the extremes of the Atacama desert in the north to the glaciers of the south – clothes, camera, sun screen, books, hiking boots, laptop – what do we get rid of? Much thinking and creative packing later, we got down to probably the lightest luggage we have done in a decade! And we didn’t miss anything.It all started on our departure from London on the 2nd of October – 17 days to go!

It’s that time of the year when another holiday beckons – this one had been on the cards for a long time. Our 10 days in Argentina and Brazil in 2005 was just a taster of the real thing, as we realised how thinly we scrapped the surface with barely any time spent in both the countries.

Ever since, the desire to go further in the continent has been lurking, it needed a plan and some resource to make it a reality. And so it is, just another few days to go for that long awaited tour. Our final itinerary includes ‘top to toe’ of Chile and the Argentine Patagonia.

The Whole Length of It

The Whole Length of It

However, this time I wish to share our experience in this diary on a day to day basis with a few pictures if possible, depending on the internet availability in wilderness. But I will surely catch up whenever base camp allows.

And so, inspired by the Motorcycle Diaries, this will be a humble attempt to journalise our experience in this exotic land, but ofcourse without using Ernesto’s and Alberto’s ‘magic formula‘ for a survival!

The itinerary roughly includes:

  • 2 nights in Santiago de Chile
  • 2 nights in San Pedro de Atacama ( Atacama desert)
  • 1 Puerto Natales
  • 2 nights Torres del Paine national park
  • 2 nights Perito Morino glacier (Argentina)
  • 1 nights El Calafate (Argentina)
  • 2 nights Bariloche (Argentina)
  • 2 nights Puerto Varas and Chiloe
  • 2 nights Valparaiso

This day by day account will under Chile & Patagonia, and I look forward to your reactions and questions. The ultimate purpose is to entice you on a similar journey!
