[Note: This is the very first travel writing I ever did in the mid 1990s and as such, it needed a little mopping up. The images can’t be clicked to be enlarged, as they had been scanned poorly. Apologies.]
My first trip to Chile and Argentina lasted five weeks and was during one February and March, some years back. The itinerary was as follows:
- Flew into Santiago and stayed in and around the Central Valley for a week.
- Off for five days for a trip to Easter Island, then back to Santiago before embarking for the Chilean Lake District , Puerto Montt and Chiloé .
- One week in Puerto Natales in Chilean Patagonia including a visit to the Torres del Paine National Park , Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia.
- Finally five days in Buenos Aires to warm my bones after the Patagonian chill.
To-date I still can’t believe I did all that – start clicking!
