Yerba Maté: Patagonia’s version of coffee. It’s been said to offer the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage. This drink is most commonly shared with a traditional gourd as a sign of friendship and bonding.
Channeling my inner Eliza Thornberry lately... These two cuties both lost their parents at birth and have grown to be best friends 💛✨
I went puma tracking in Torres del Paine for the first time last week and not only saw my first Puma... but 4 of them! 😻 I don’t recommend going to look for pumas without a local guide who is legally permitted to track the specific land you are on. The @venturepatagonia team went puma tracking with our partners who own this land. Feel free to contact me or Venture Patagonia with any questions you have about these tours.
Work hard, play harder... the most applicable motto for my life. 🔑When everyone else puts up their OOO... that’s when the real grind starts in tourism. The past few weeks have been killer but that’s a good problem to have in my case. Signing back on now & ready for 2019 to one hell of a year 🍻 Photo by @hannes_becker
The wildest, most remote place I have ever hiked... Navarino island, located in Cabo de Hornos, the extreme southern tip of South America.. 🌎 This is what it’s all about. Puro Salvaje. Pure wild. (and by ‘it’ I mean life)
The proper way to celebrate finishing Dientes de Navarino hike in Puerto Williams! These king crabs are (were) 12 & 14 years old and were caught this morning in the Beagle Channel 🦀 Que ricoooo!!!
How big do you think you are? Can you find @daniel_ernst walking along the beach? Experiencing such immense scale can have a big impact on one’s thoughts and feelings.. especially when that scale is given by nature instead of buildings or people. This is why I love the mountains and the ocean 😌.
In the office today planning for our next Venture scouting expedition... in 9 days we head south to explore the southernmost trek in the world: Dientes de Navarino. 🗺 On this trek I will have to bring everything to be prepared... compass, GPS, maps, and watch.
