Another early start as we are crossing the border back into Chile today. Its a reasonable drive to the border and any fresh goods once again need to be eaten before we get there. I get my bags all ready and out in time for loading onto the truck and head back in to get … More Road to Futaleufu
After quite a late night arriving and socialising in Bariloche, I head for the breakfast which is included in the accommodation. As seems to be the case its a pretty simple breakfast of cornflakes, toast and jam but I think its the first time I have actually had a cup of tea since we left … More Bariloche – Kite and Kayak

So it is with a heavy heart I leave Sydney again, bidding farewell to all my friends over there and not really knowing this time when my next trip will be, although in the back of my mind S2H 75th Anniversary in 2019 seems like an option!! I leave my little airbnb in Manly loaded … More A very long Monday…..
