We had two days left on the rental car and decided that it was time to head back to Chile and Torres del Paine National Park. We wanted to drive through the park while we still had a car and we also wanted to day hike the Torres the following day. That was the one segm...

I could get used to this. I awoke to the sweet smell of freshly peeled oranges and the sound of the surf. Ol, was already awake and out on the verandah. The sun doesn’t rise until after seven a.m., and the cool breeze made it easy to sleep in.
