Experiencing Bad Luck When Traveling

17 Comments 19 February 2013

I had seen those people before – the ones with the duct taped boots or better yet the people who left their torn up destroyed boots on the trail as an offering to the hiking Gods. I always thought, “What idiots!“, I couldn’t understand how these people could be so horrible at planning. How could [...]

W is For…

3 Comments 22 February 2013

Kayaking Solitude in Torres Del Paine Patagonia

3 Comments 26 February 2013

I can see it coming. My legs tense up as the kayak rocks from side to side. The wind is a full frontal assault trying it’s best to rip my hat off my head. The brim is blown back and the string it is attached with is pulling against my chin ready to snap. For [...]

Where Sheep Roam – Patagonia

5 Comments 15 March 2013

Coming to My Rescue

8 Comments 19 March 2013

I’m walking towards the door, I remember reaching my hand to grab the handle and turn and then my vision went black. I feel arms around me as my legs go limp and I feel like one of those toy giraffes who’s limbs were held attached by elastic string. When you hit the button on [...]
