27 Feb Let the Photogs Begin; Patagonia
Sadly I have been falling far behind on keeping up to date with my personal travel blog (this one, From Shwa to Ushuaia). In December I wrote no posts, only one for January, and this will be the only post for February. I can attribute this lack of… say commitment, to many different things but really it comes down to me procrastinating and not really feeling the strong desire to write anything about my personal travels and adventures. This is somewhat contradictory to why I started the blog in the first place and I can’t really pin point an exact reason for my persistent procrastination. Anyway, an idea came to me recently that if I were to continue to be un motivated to write, I could focus on what I am seemingly consistently motivated on doing, taking photos.
This portion of my travel blog is going to highlight my time back in the Southern Cone of South America after a 7 month stint in Eastern/Southern Africa (the first section of the blog entitled From Shwa to Etosha). I have been back in SA now since October and really only four posts to this blog in 5 months is pretty pathetic. What I have been doing (instead of writing) is taking a shit ton of photos. As a small groups adventure tour leader I am extremely lucky to travel to some of the most photogenic locations in southern South America, over and over again. I have been putting together some kick ass photos with nothing really to do with them (except maybe share them on Facecrack).
It is time to start pushing more traffic towards this site and sharing more photos, who really wants to read my blabber anyway. I’d be amazed if you have made it this far already. 🙂 So with no further a due, please enjoy the first set of images from my first trip back as a tour leader in South America. These images were taken in late October, 2012 from Barilcohe through to Puerto Varas, down to Punta Arenas and back up to Puerto Natales, from the incredible W Trek of Torres del Paine and back across to El Calafate/El Chalten, ending finally in Ushuaia and the end of the world. This, my friends, is the stunning Patagonia as seen through my eyes on my first trip back.
Well that’s about that for now. This is the first of what I hope to be many similar ‘photo blog’ or (photog) posts. I am thinking I will take the best shots from each of my individual tours throughout this six month contract and create something along the same lines as what I have done above. Soooo, if you like photos and you like travel, then you gonna like the posts (I hope). 😉 Cheers from beautiful Torres Base lookout point in the Torres del Paine National Park, Chilean Patagonia!!
