Patagonian Range

Seven more days before I officially end my travelling-bum days and rejoin the rat-race (oh yes, got the job offer last Friday). Thought I'd better get on with organising our photos from our Round-the-world trip. KL and I have been meaning to do it for so long since we returned to London but, somehow we've managed to keep putting it off.

Anyway, as I plonk myself on the sofa, sifting through the many many photos (a shocking 40GB!) we took - I have ( yet again) managed to get myelf distracted; ending up on my blog site instead. So, here you go - some shots from Patagonia, Argentina.

El Chalten, a small remote village located at the foot of the Fitz Roy Mountain Range. It really reminded me of a cowboy town that you see on tv - unpaved roads, full of dust and a place where you see more horses than people.

A view of the mountains from the Mirador.
The magical sky of Patagonia. The sunsets are like none we have ever seen - a different display every evening.

Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the world's natural wonders.

The vastness of the glacier in comparison to a cruise ship.

The flora and fauna of the Patagonian... a fox enjoying the view.

... the Ilamas, well, the Llamas were keeping themselves occupied. Mind you the big guys was still at it even with a bus load full of wide-eyed tourists filming and snapping away.

Stunning sceneries in the National Park.

Parilla - succulent barbecued patagonian lamb. A meal we had practically every day - we've never eaten so much red meat in our lives.
