Travelling chores and pleasures

This striking sculpture is on the shoreline at Puerto Natales – a man and woman heading towards Torres del Paine just like us!

We are back in Chile getting ready for three days in the Torres del Paine national park; widely considered the most striking natural environment in the whole of South America.

At Puerto Natales we’ve confirmed our accommodation inside the park – reservations are now compulsory – bought some provisions, hired hiking poles and filled up our wallets. With so much gore-tex on show here, there’s a serious back-packer atmosphere, especially in our hostel where we all watched tonight the wonderful French Oscar winner Amelia. It’s simple shared moments like this that make travelling such a pleasure.
