For those who like to read this is not going to be a good post. For those who like pictures it will be a bit better.
It’s about the two days I spent in Puerto Nadales and the second day excursion to the Bernardo O’Higgins and Torres del Paines parks.
The day I spent in Puerto Nadales I caught up with electronic life as well as walking around extensively taking pictures of things I found interesting.
Then on day two I got up early to get to the agency for 7:30 and catch the boat up the fiord.
The tour would follow the Last Hope Sound see several waterfalls and glaciers, eat lunch, sail up the Rio Serrano with a combination of Zodiacs and get back on a minibus.
So, just to update you it was a two hours boat ride up and not too cold. I was however grateful to my merino wool base layer. There was near no conversation and a lot of contemplation of the surrounding beauty all accompanied by Pink Floyd’s Wish “You were here” followed by “The dark side of the moon” in all its enlightening madness and genius.
Time to land and to start the one hour hike to the Serrano Glacier.
And then there was lunch, a short boat ride across the top of the sound and into a nice little restaurant. I got seated next to two lovely people from the holly land.
We had food, a chat and a laugh and then we all got onto the Zodiac for the third and final part of the trip. Up the Rio Serrano, getting towards the bottom of Torres del Paine.
Truly worth while day out and kickstarting the desire to come back and do all the hiking that I have no equipment and time to do now.
“There is no dark side of the moon really, as a matter of fact it’s all dark!”
