Hey Andile,

I'll be in about the same region during that time too, eventhough I start in January already. Maybe we could still meet up for a part oft the trip.

Hi Barbara

That's great ...Do you have a rough itinerary ?

My plan is flexible but I want to buy flights from Santiago to Torres del paine as I have to arrange accommodation in advance for hiking at the park ?
