Thanks for such detailed blogs. We'll be heading that way in the next couple of years and we'll be able to use your experience to assist us on planning. Glad everyone is friendly.

Hi - I enjoy writing them as well, and I look forward to being able to look back on these in years to come. It really is a great trip - if you can take more time over it, then I would recommend it. We fitted a lot in the time we had, but it might be even better at a slightly slower speed! Thanks for reading!

Boarder Crossings
They are all unique and yet the same. Bureaucracy. And generally many people standing around not working. Thanks for the descriptions of the terrain changes.

Lakes and more
Glad you got to see the lake. Yes, I'll bet that was cold. Glad you made it back to the train!

very well said
I have been following your blog & greatly enjoy the details & photos. My husband Dave & I feel the same way. What's the point? We have taken one .... yes one ... selfie. It was terrible and we laughed hysterically [ a bit tipsy]. We do have the giant hard drive but we pull up photos all the time, especially when friends are going that way. And I love making fantastic scrap books that tell a story they are full of pictures, written notes, napkins from good food, all kinds of stuff. Well I'm going back to reading your trip. I got behind.

i remember the muller hut
we stayed overnight in that hut. a storm came and rattled the windows. the next day we ran down the mountain in driving rain and everything we had got soaked. we also got soaked in milford sound - I suspect most people do and the guide book photos are taken on teh one sunny day that occurs every three years. Are you back soon rog? sorry to bring it up!

Haha. Yep, there was a storm coming in as we went down. We chatted with quite a few people who had booked müller hut for the night and were wishing they didn't. It was pretty wet the next morning for their walk down. Glad we stayed in town! Yes... Only 2 and a bit weeks left. Boo. And don't worry... Plenty of people are mentioning it...

when we were on the coast in mexico in January, I went to for a swim on two different beaches for about 30min in total and through the whole time a couple was taking selfies in the same spot! excruciating.

that road!!
het guys, glad you are enjoying the cheap booze and steak of argentina - are you trying to kill the stomach bugs with booze?? I felt the same way about Salta - pretty but not very exciting. you know that road you took the bus along over the border? we were driving in the opposite direction and our car broke down on those salt flats - we were towed to the next town by some germans with an amazing 4x4 with satellite phone and automated tow rope (typically well organised). then there was no mechanic in the town and the car was put on the back of an empty parguayan car transporter at 4am (with us in the car!). The parguayans dumped us on teh out skirts of a mining town near san pedro (calama i think). Glad your journey was slightly less eventful!

It was fun. Though we found a copy cat bar down the road which had jumped on the bandwagon with the swings so we tried that too. Though that one didn't have stout...
