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

Tide races and a camera in the ocean.

skapad 2011-06-12 i 'Green Adventures Blog'

 

It was the perfect day for a photo session. The sun was out, the sea had a turkishlike turquoise color, the waves at both Penrhyn Mawr and North Stack were very photogenic, as were the paddlers who had all launched from Porth Dafach. We were a gang of five this day, Nick Cunliffe, Barry Shaw, Justine Curgenven, Marcus Demuth and me.

After a short paddle out to Penrhyn Mawr I wanted to get on to an island to take better pictures. And that is where my day turned into a really bad one. I dropped my SLR camera in the ocean. And no, it wasn´t one of those waterproof ones. I promised my self there and then that this will never ever happen again in my life. But Marcus, being older and wiser than me, just said that it will happen again Ulrika, cause that is what life is all about. Grrrr... I don´t think I agree with him and I´m certanly not looking forward to the next time it happens.

Luckily Nick had brought his camera too, so the pictures below from Penryhn Mawr, I took with his camera. The pictures from North Stack was taken by Nick. And his camera still works.

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