Trekking to the far end of the world - Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Hidden away from the rest of the world, Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Patagonia, Chile is a beautiful gem that completely blew my mind during our 5 day trek last week. I still dream about it every night and can't wait to go back.

What is it about lighthouses?

I love lighthouses. And I know I'm not the only one. The attraction lighthouses has on me is equivalent to what lots of people feel when they see a brand new Aston Martin in the street or probably how a horse enthusiast feels when a proud Arabic horse is running across the fields in the sunset. There's something magic about them.

Life is good

Green Adventures is not only about work. It's about a passion, not only for kayaking but for all the amazing things we can do in the outdoors. Last weekend I had a wonderful time on a mirror calm sea just outside my door step. fake rolex

Filming action in Welsh Waters.

skapad 2011-07-21 i 'Green Adventures Blog'

 

Matt Giblin and Nick Cunliffe are the kayakers behind Kayak Essentials. When they´re not all wrapped up in dry suits, buoyancy aids and with paddles in their hands, they might be out filming. This week they are filming their third DVD and this time they are focusing on Safety and Rescue.

I´ve been asked to come along and join them. Normally you wouldn´t think about light, angles, smiles, matching colors, paddling in the "right" waves etc but it´s a fun process to be involved in and I can tell you that I´ve already tested my new dry suit from Palm, more than enough to know that it´s totally alright to call it a dry suit. But I did think that the welsh water would be a bit warmer than it is...

The week isn´t over yet and I look forward to more filming days and to spend more time in the boat and in the cool water.

A special thanks to Matt, who´ve taken some of the pictures below.

If you click the pictures, they will be presented in a lightbox.

Good company in the water. The Atlantic Grey seal was hanging around for a while wanted to be filmed.

Which led to a freaking out camera man  who almost lost all his hair this day. And this was only the second day of filming...
