The Travelettes Itinerary: Hiking in Patagonia

•••
“Don’t ask about the weather forecast, it’s Patagonia” is scrawled on a sign outside one of the campsites on the W-trek. I first saw Patagonia on Pinterest. I can't remember what I was searching for. But I remember the mountain. Ice capped, mythical, surrounded by water tinted a shade of blue all its own. But there it was amid recipes for banana muffins a[...]

Wondrous wildlife in Puerto Madryn

I’m hopeful. As we set sail from Puerto Pirámides, our guide Sebastian confidently assures us that we have a ‘100% chance’ of seeing Southern Right Whales today. He’s not wrong.

A Kingdom for a Whale - A Travel Story from Tonga

I want to see a whale. More than that - I want to swim with a whale. That was my one and only reason to travel to Tonga, an island state in the South Pacific that is one of the few places worldwide where it is possible to do exactly that. And now I am standing on this boat in the middle of the ocean with nothing around me but water. I repeat, nothing. We [...]
