After saying goodbye to Chile, I crossed the land border into Argentinian Patagonia and began looking for some incredible mountains to explore. Like its Chilean counterpart, Argentina’s share of Patagonia is just as remarkable!
Torres Del Paine – easily one of the most extreme and erratic treks I’ve done. Unlike many other treks, this one condenses some phenomenal sites into 5 incredible days. This post is a photoblog but at the end of it, I’ve included some practical info that may help you as the information out there is a bit sketchy!
Colombia is one of the first countries I’ve come across where everyone has very unique itineraries. I was expecting many people to be following the well trodden Gringo trail north or south around South America, but it turns out this doesn’t really apply to Colombia.
Sagada is the natural next stop from Banaue as it provides a taste of some interesting culture and small town vibes. I mean, surely hearing the phrase ‘Hanging Coffins’ is enough to get you there?
Northern Luzon in the Philippines is home to the best rice terraces I’ve seen in the past 10 months. Couple this with quaint villages to hike through and sleep in, it makes the region really special. Here’s a photo blog of our journey to the terraces, and a little practical information as the internet is lacking in good advice for the region.
Malaysia has been impressing the socks off me! I made my way through to the Cameron Highlands after a great time in Georgetown and wasn’t too sure what to expect. What I got was a quaint town in the mountains that may very well be a slice of the British countryside, complete with an abundance of outdoor activities to keep me busy for days!
