  • The Shady Side of SantiagoThe hazy, lazy days of summer are on the wane here in Chile and many stores are having end of season sales and 'Back-to-School” specials. But, with daytime highs still hitting the mid-thirties, it sure feels like August to us. Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Feb 21, 2018
  • Valparaiso's CanvasAs a youngster, James romanticized about life aboard the merchant sailing ships in the 1800s - before the age of steam and the Panama canal. It was a time when ports such as Valparaiso, Iquique and Guayquil were thronged by Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Feb 18, 2018
  • Punta Arenas - Day 9 Sunday 2/4Sooo...the plan was to take a speed boat ride (possibly terrifying) to reach Magdalena Island, where the star attractions are the thousands of Magellanic Penguins that nest there. As they say, we plan and God laughs. After disembarking the Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Feb 15, 2018
  • On our way to Chile! This evening, we left for Chile Posted by phildyard in South America Vacation | Feb 12, 2018
  • Chile begins I left you as we were preparing to leave Peru for Chile. In order to get to Arequipa, Chile, we had to travel overland by bus for about 6 hours through landscapes that were mostly reddish orange soil, some mountainous Posted by cathyandtom in Travels to South America | Feb 8, 2018
  • Scenic cruising - Day 8 Saturday 2/3Today was another day at sea.

  • Chilean Fjords - Day 7 Friday 2/2We were very happy not to wake up to a 6:15 AM alarm this morning. After breakfast and the gym, we settled in for a scenic sea day. It was extremely foggy in the morning (in fact, the foghorn could Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Feb 4, 2018
  • Puerto Chacabuco - Day 6 Thursday 2/1So, you may ask...what exactly is Patagonia? Patagonia is the vast, wild region that straddles Chile and Argentina. Consider this quote from author Bruce Chatwin, “Patagonia is the farthest place to which man walked from his Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Feb 4, 2018
  • Castro, Isla Chiloe - Day 5 Wednesday 1/31We had a much smoother beginning today. We had tickets for the second tender, and during our ten minute ride, we were treated to our FIRST PENGUIN SIGHTING. Two adorable penguins were diving in the channel for food; Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Feb 4, 2018
  • Puerto Montt - Day 4 Tuesday 1/30Today did not start out well. Our first obstacle was that disembarkation in Puerto Montt was delayed by about 90 minutes. Apparently, the current in the channel was far stronger than estimated, which held up our entry. Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Feb 4, 2018
  • Day at Sea - Day 3 Monday 1/29We are traveling in the Humboldt current, or more precisely AGAINST the current, which has afforded us some rocky seas. Our breakfast waiter urged us to utilize the tai chi philosophy of going with the flow. So, we Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Feb 1, 2018
  • San Antonio - Day 2 Sunday 1/28After much-needed sleep, we enjoyed breakfast at our hotel and before we knew it, the time had come to leave our fabulous wifi (and the hotel that came with it). We had arranged for a van transfer to the Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Jan 28, 2018
  • Santiago - Day 1 Saturday 1/27Long air flights are the price one must pay/endure for adventure. Our LATAM flight was as decent as a coach flight could be, but after a generally sleepless night, with maybe a 20 minute nap (for me...Charlie always gets Posted by Cybercsp in Antarctica | Jan 28, 2018

  • Punta Arenas is not AntarcticaIt's so disappointing to wake up somewhere other than Antarctica. But, at least we got to sleep in a bit. We checked out of the hotel and went to find something to do in Punta Arenas. The town seems to be a Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jan 4, 2018
  • Hiking the AndesI was up a bit early- around 6- to see the sun come up behind the Andes. It's not quite a sunrise, as you don't actually see the sun, just the light creating a silhouette of the mountains. The neighbors Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Dec 25, 2017
  • Punta Arenas5 am is a less-than-ideal flight departure time, but that's what we had. The airport was surprisingly active for this abhorrent hour. Most of us slept the whole way to Punta Arenas. The cruise company (Quark) picked us up from Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Dec 28, 2017
  • Almost AntarcticaThey didn't wake us in the middle of the night to say we had to go early. In fact, at the morning briefing, they told us our flight would be at 3pm instead of 1pm. That gave us the morning Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Dec 29, 2017

  • Classic ValparaisoOur guide picked us up just before 9 and we headed to the coast. On the way, she pointed out one valley as the "food valley" (where much of Santiago's produce comes from) and another as the "wine valley". In Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Dec 27, 2017
