Crossing over the Andes


I know it’s been some time and I have been missing in action. I do apologize!! My husband, who is in the midst of changing jobs came upon some unexpected time off and we decided to take a last-minute trip to South America. It was my first time to this part of the world and boy oh boy were we in for some good times!!

For me one of the best things about this trip was that it was very spontaneous. Usually I like to plan my trips down to the last details, where we will stay, what we will do each day, the history, the geography and other than food (that is Mr. B) just about everything else.  It was refreshing to not even know which cities we were visiting.

Over the course of our trip we had to cross the Andes quite a few times. This mountain range is magnificent in its beauty, stretching over 4300 m long and the highest peak, Mount Aconcagua rises to 6962 m.

Here are a few pictures the Andes. I missed you folks and look forward to sharing many more stories and photos from my South American adventures!

  1. My fave’s the second pic, I like how you’ve captured the river and town there. South America — have a look at some wonderful travel pix of Andrew Graeme Gould — andrewgraemegould.com — who is based in Santiago, Chile. In his series, there is always a signature pic that has a dog/dogs in it! Look forward to seeing more posts from your travels.
