Back home


View Chile 2017 Winter on FierceOrc's travel map.

After a very bumpy flight across the Atlantic, not at all unlike driving along the Carretera Austral, we're now back home. And tomorrow it's back to work for me.

Next stop, in five years' time or so: Argentinian Patagonia along Ruta 40, the largely unpaved road on the other side of the Andes stretching across the length of Argentina, with Ushuaia, the southernmost city on the globe, as the final destination. My brother Jos and I navigated the northern part from Mendoza all the way to the Bolivian border in 2011.

Lessons learned:
1. My hair has thinned to the extent that I can make do with hotel hairdryers and no longer need to bring my own.
2.
3.
Hm. That's pretty much it.

Here's a couple of pictures I did not get around to posting before.
