Video from Chile

#xx_calbucoeruption

It’s time to fill this blog with content again! Let’s start with my latest video from April 2015, making my way from the rainy Fjords in Patagonia to the Island of Chiloé, tracking down the erupting Volcano Calbuco and finally walking and hitch hiking into ash-covered Argentina. All of that in just 12 minutes, in which you will also witness my transition from ridiculously long to very short hair  🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

Video from Torres del Paine in Patagonia, Chile

#104_tdp2Unfortunately, my Notebook is neither fixed nor replaced, leaving me unable to edit the new set of pictures from Uruguay. Fortunately though, I had this video already done and just put it online for the public. Join me in my motion pictures through the amazing Torres del Paine W-trek in Chile’s Patagonia, probably one of the best hikes our planet has to offer… Read the rest of this entry »

Video from Cabo Froward, Chile

#101_capofroward

Capo Froward is the most southern point of mainland South America and it requires good planning for the river crossings during low tide to reach it. Some blogger described that you should be a “hardcore trekking, camping, outdoorsy person (or German)”. It sounded like a perfect match, but due to the massive rainfall before and during the hike, I soon had to accept that mother nature had no plans to let anyone near the cross at the end of the trail…

Live #90, Puyehue, Chile

#111_puyehue26/04/2015 Volcan Calbuco remained calm and I was headed to Villa la Angostura in Argentina. The journey involved a lot of hitch hiking and walking through ash-covered landscapes after the eruption, providing a rather uncommon expierence. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #89, Puerto Varas, Frutillar & Llanquihue, Chile

#110_puertovaras24/04/2015 I was making my way out of Chiloé, pretty excited to see the still erupting volcano Calbuco from the ferry. I would soon get very close in reaching the town of Puerto Varas, without a clue if and when I could make my way towards the border to cross into Argentina. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #88, Chiloé & Volcan Calbuco eruption, Chile

22/04/2015 After attending a lecture about Chiloé during the navimag ferry ride, I decided to change my plans and visit the biggest island off central Chile’s coast, known for wooden churches and myths about trolls or ghost ships. While I did not encounter any of those, I was actually stuck because of Volcan Calbuco’s spectacular eruption in nearby Puerto Varas. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #87, Navigmag, Chile

#108_navimag19/04/2015 The 4-day Navimag cruise from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt is known for it’s amazing views on the Patagonian Fjords and the chance to see blue whales. I was lucky with the whales, but not so much with the weather, leaving me with mostly grey skies and rain.  Read the rest of this entry »

Live #86, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Days 5 & 6)

#107_tdp516/04/2015 It was the fifth and final (full) day of my trek through Torres del Paine. The weather conditions remained the same; a freezing cold morning, followed by a great sunny day. I would make my way through an impressive canyon before attempting an early morning sunrise hike towards the Torres Lake, hoping that the weather would stick around for just a bit longer as rain was dominating the forecast in the next days..

Live #85, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Day 4)

#106_tdp415/04/2015 The ice on my tent was a remnant of the bitter cold night and I had to start walking in my shorts after falling to the ground and opening up a wound on my knee. I couldn’t help but smile when I was asked if I would be heading to the beach! My final destination for the day would be Mirador of Vallé Frances though, offering a first close-up view on the famous Torres. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #84, Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile (Day 3)

#105_tdp314/04/2015 The third day of my trek in Torres del Paine National Park would finally lead me to one of the highlights: Paso John Gardner. I was happy to wake up full of energy after a very comfortable night without any rats around this time and had to cross a second hanging bridge, spanned high above the valley at an awesome viewpoint of the glacier. Taking pictures in that situation turned out to be pretty difficult because of the bridge’s movement.. Read the rest of this entry »
