Nathan & My Road Trip to The End of the Earth!

Tuesday 9 Jan 2018 11:24

What an amazing trip. We got to see places few people will ever have the opportunity to visit. We saw animals I never expected to see in their natural habitat. We had many great meals and beverages and met many good people but what made it most special was I had the opportunity to spend more than two weeks with Nathan. It truly was the trip of a life time.

Tuesday 9 Jan 2018 8:27

Nathan missed his flight and we needed to split up. I’m just about to board my flight. Looks like I should be on time.

Tuesday 9 Jan 2018 7:30

Not looking good for Nathan making his flight. We are still waiting for our bags.

Posted: Jan. 9, 2018, 12:30 p.m.

Tuesday 9 Jan 2018 7:03

We made it to Toronto. There was a delay getting out of Santiago so our connecting flights are going to be tight. Nathan’s connection is the real worry as his flight is boarding in less than 10 minuets and taking off in 40 minuets. Here is where Nathan and I will split up with me going to Regina and he to Saskatoon. It was a great trip.

Getting close to boarding. Getting our stomachs back to North American foods.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 18:29

Made it through customs. Just waiting for our gate to be announced.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 17:23

Santiago Aeropuerto We’ve completed our circle. We dropped off our truck after almost 10 000 km without any issues.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 8:23 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 17:18

We’ll try it one more time.

Ok. That was much better.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 8:18 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 14:32

Valparaíso is known for their 28 funiculars, so we needed to try at least one. We chose one that was built in 1915.

Well that was rather underwhelming!! Our funicular turned out to be an elevator. A cool 100 year old elevator that joins two neighbourhoods a few 100 feet apart, but still an elevator!

If we can find another we will try one more.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 5:32 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 14:00

We thought we were done but the chef insisted we try leche asada, a local special dessert.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 13:33

El Rincon de Greda We went back to Viña del Mar for our last lunch of our trip, Pastel de Choclo. Kind of a Chilean shepherds’ pie.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 4:33 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 12:28

We took a winding road up to some Nobel Prizewinning poet’s house but it was closed.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 3:28 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 11:43

Driving around Valparaíso not really sure where we are. Looking for wifi and a place for lunch.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 2:43 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 10:00

We are in Viña del Mar, sister city to Valparaíso and are wanting to go to the beach but are unsure how the parking works.

Posted: Jan. 8, 2018, 1 p.m.

Monday 8 Jan 2018 7:01

We are spending the last day of our trip driving out to Valparaíso, a seaside city an hour and a half Northwest of Santiago. We plan on a bit of swimming, a seafood lunch, some sightseeing and then a winery tour on the way back. Our plane leaves tonight after 9 and we need to return the truck so we will probably be at the airport between 6&7.

Saturday 6 Jan 2018 22:03

Running late. Subway closes before midnight. Found a Peruvian restaurant with everything on the menu in Spanish. Not sure what we are going to get. *Update Won’t be all bad. Just ordered a Cerveza and found out it’s from Machu Pichu!!! Another Update Having Ceviche. Not too sure but going to give it a shot. Final Update* It wad surprisingly good. The only things I didn’t like were the favs beans and the scallops.

Posted: Jan. 7, 2018, 1:03 a.m.

Saturday 6 Jan 2018 21:16

Pretty sure we bought chicken and fries from some lady on the street corner. After our Earthquake I think Nathan was ready to buy anything from just about anyone for just about any price. $3. Amazing!

Posted: Jan. 7, 2018, 12:16 a.m.

Saturday 6 Jan 2018 20:46

La Piojera We found a literal “hole in the wall” where they make a special drink-Terremoto-The Earthquake!! It’s a Santiago staple every visitor should try. A mix of sweet wine (pipeño or chicha) sometimes pisco (a liquor made from grapes), fernet, pineapple ice cream, and a hint of grenadine. Make sure to mix well and you will walk out feeling like a tremor just hit you. If you order a second it is usually smaller and called a “replica” (aftershock).

Shopping

Saturday 6 Jan 2018 17:52

We hit the pool for a quick cool down and now we are thinking about heading downtown. Nathan found a good place for seafood and then we need to try a signature drink called a volcano. Stay tuned for an update. Hosta Lavista.

Posted: Jan. 6, 2018, 8:52 p.m.

Saturday 6 Jan 2018 16:49

We’ve made it to our last temporary home for this trip. Santiago is 33 degrees but I see Regina has warmed up to -1 and Toronto is -16 so hopefully it won’t be too much of a shock to our systems when we get back.

Posted: Jan. 6, 2018, 7:49 p.m.

Saturday 6 Jan 2018 12:56

Just about full circle. Getting close to Santiago.

El Federal. Stopped in for lunch after a long morning of walking. Nathan just looked up the temperature. It’s 35 and feels like 40. No wonder we’re feeling it.

Thursday 4 Jan 2018 12:37

Stopped for a cold drink after walking to see a bunch of sights. I forgot to turn on my app to track our distance so not sure just how far we’ve walked but it’s a lot. Now it’s off to see some of the things we missed last night and maybe some souvenir shopping.

Posted: Jan. 4, 2018, 3:37 p.m.

Posted: Jan. 4, 2018, 11:32 a.m.

Thursday 4 Jan 2018 8:30

As we walked around last night we both noted how Buenos Aries feels/looks very European. It seems to have a mix of Paris, Barcelona and even Malaga.

Wednesday 3 Jan 2018 22:56

Los 36 Billares Tonight for supper (we’ve been living on the South American idea of supper time so we regularly eat after 10:30) we are trying a landmark place right across the street from our apartment. I’ll tell you more about where we are staying in a bit. The billiard hall was started in 1894 and has become somewhat of a historical gem of Buenos Aires. As far as our apartment, we are staying in an incredible high-end like place which was built in the early 1900s. It has high ceilings, chandeliers and ornate balconies. We are next door to the Palacio Barolo building which was built in 1919 and at 22 floors was the tallest building in all of South America for many years.

Posted: Jan. 4, 2018, 1:56 a.m.

Wednesday 3 Jan 2018 19:10

First sunny and HOT (+31 for Laurie!!) day since Santiago. Just walking around seeing some of the sights.
So hot we needed to stop to re-hydrate. (The fruit is to protect us from scurvy!! LOL!!)

Posted: Jan. 3, 2018, 10:10 p.m.

Wednesday 3 Jan 2018 16:57

We’re having a quick snack then it’s off to do some exploring. We’ve already been warned to be careful with our camera and to be wary of pickpockets.

Posted: Jan. 3, 2018, 7:57 p.m.

Wednesday 3 Jan 2018 16:02

We are staying in a beautiful old (probably 1800s) building. We each have our own suite.

Posted: Jan. 2, 2018, 5:28 p.m.

Tuesday 2 Jan 2018 6:22

Just having a little breakfast before hitting the road. This hotel is just a couple of hours north of where we had hoped to see our last penguins-rockhoppers, but we couldn’t make it work time wise. Oh well, next time!

Del Fin Del Mundo.

We made it to the end of the world in Ushuaia. For those of you that are interested, it is pronounced Oosh-Why-ah. I can’t wait to share some of Nathan’s pictures of the last 50 km with you. The scenery was absolutely amazing.

Posted: Dec. 31, 2017, 12:07 a.m.

Saturday 30 Dec 2017 11:50

Stopped for lunch before were off to Useless Bay to see penguins. Not sure what we are getting to eat. We think it might be beef. We didn’t really understand our waitress/chef/owner/server.
Just got it. Tastes like penguin! With egg!

Saturday 30 Dec 2017 11:25

Posted: Dec. 30, 2017, 2:25 p.m.

Saturday 30 Dec 2017 8:10

Loaded up and ready to go! We met a really nice couple from Brittany, France who helped us with the language needed to buy the tickets for the ferry. They also corrected us on the llamas, apparently they are actually guanacos, a fourth member of the camelid family along with vicuñas and alpacas.

Posted: Dec. 30, 2017, 11:10 a.m.

Saturday 30 Dec 2017 1:22

We got to Punta Arenas around midnight as we had quite the adventure getting to the border. I'll fill you in when I get some time. As for now it's time to sleep as we have an early morning ferry to catch so we can see penguins. Night.

Friday 29 Dec 2017 19:17

Saved our butts We met 5 very helpful Chileans today. They sold us some gas and got us back on our way. We were about 4 hours behind schedule but it had been looking very bad.

Posted: Dec. 29, 2017, 10:17 p.m.

Friday 29 Dec 2017 18:38

Lost We got really lost this time. We drove over an hour over a very bad road only to get to a police station/immigration station in the middle of a pasture and we had less than a quarter tank of gas.

Friday 29 Dec 2017 9:35

Perito Moreno Glacier

We spent the morning seeing the glacier. Pretty amazing to see. We left just in time as it started to rain a very cold rain. After a quick bite it’s back to Chile and Puerto Arenas.

Posted: Dec. 29, 2017, 12:35 p.m.

Friday 29 Dec 2017 0:20

We got cleaned up and went out for supper. Tomorrow we’re off to the glacier.

Posted: Dec. 29, 2017, 3:20 a.m.

Thursday 28 Dec 2017 21:52

We made it to El Calafate. It was about a 17 hour drive. We left before the sun rise in Bariloche and got here shortly after 11. It was long but all the wildlife made the time go faster.

Thursday 28 Dec 2017 17:25

Birds

This started out as a waypoint about birds as we saw a mother Rhea and her chicks. The funny thing was though, as soon as I started the post, we started seeing more llamas. Up until this point we had seen about 20 from here on to El Calafate we ended up seeing more than 600 as well as more than 50 Rheas!!

Posted: Dec. 28, 2017, 8:25 p.m.

We woke fairly early this morning to hike to two of the waterfalls in the Parque. This is the smallest of the 6-Salto de la Princesa.

Tuesday 26 Dec 2017 21:16

Our first night in the Chilean mountains was in Parque Nacional Puyehue in an A-Frame cabin. Nathan made a great midnight meal of wood-fire cooked fajitas with a nice local wine. We had hoped to be able to take some star pictures as there is zero light pollution but by the time we finished eating clouds had obscured the amazing sight.

Posted: Dec. 27, 2017, 12:16 a.m.

Tuesday 26 Dec 2017 11:50

We drove out to a peninsula west of Concepcion. We had a tour of a house of a world traveler from the 1880s. We went down to the beach and I think it might be the most photogenic spot I’ve ever seen.

Posted: Dec. 26, 2017, 2:50 p.m.

Tuesday 26 Dec 2017 8:45

Buenos días. We had a great sleep last night and now we’re off to the peninsula to see the ocean. Then it’s heading south to Parque Nacional Puyehue.

Posted: Dec. 26, 2017, 11:45 a.m.

Monday 25 Dec 2017 22:45

We arrived at our first stop-Concepcion. As it is Christmas Day it might be an issue finding someplace to eat so that is where we are off to now.

Posted: Dec. 26, 2017, 1:45 a.m.

Monday 25 Dec 2017 15:30

We just checked the weather app. 31 here. -3 in Toronto. -27, feels like -40 with the wind in Regina.

Posted: Dec. 25, 2017, 6:30 p.m.

Monday 25 Dec 2017 12:52

We’ve made it to Chile! It’s about 32 degrees in Santiago. We need to go through customs and then pick up our truck to go to our first stop, Concepcion.

Posted: Dec. 25, 2017, 5:52 p.m.

Monday 25 Dec 2017 1:22

We’ve had a bit of a delay due to first the weather, then six travelers who didn’t join their luggage so the bags had to be found and removed. Then there were two guys near Nathan (we had been separated earlier-another story) who started having convulsions. They also needed to be removed with their luggage. We are now finally getting de-iced and with any luck should be underway by 2:15-two and a half hours after the original time.

Spending the day with Mackenzie’s parents, Tracy and Mark, playing games and visiting. We are keeping a close watch on the weather as there’s a big snowstorm going through and we’re a bit worried that it might affect our departure.

Looks like you are having an amazing adventure! The weather looks hit and miss....but I'm sure you're not missing the -30 weather we're having. Stay safe.

Looks like a lot of fine dining going on.

Looks like you are having a great time. This is fun to track you. Keep posting. Maybe get in one of the pictures perry.

Really enjoying your pictures and updates Perry, thanks! (hi Nathan!)

Sounds like you are enjoying your adventure. It’s -40’s here at home. Share the temp when you can cause we’re envious. Love you both. Safe travels.

Whew! So glad you made it! Merry Christmas! Looking forward to following this adventure.
