Our Wild Patagonia Adventure
Viva Expeditions – you were our choice,
- the online Reviews had a loud voice.
For our Patagonia adventure, we had researched, read, and noted that many satisfied customers had “voted”
- Viva – the best!!
Well, we put “Viva” to the test.
Second to none!!
From Melinda (Mel), Franco, and Esperanza (the truck), we had enthusiastic experience, and “hope”, oh such luck!!
Local guides too, were our leaders
- supporters, and feeders
of information, and insights
about history. (What human rights?).
We learned about landscapes, trees, and flora, the weather, birdlife, and the fauna.
On “Rock and Roll” highways
we enjoyed lengthy “drive days”.
From vineyards, to “fin del mundo”, it was our goal to see lakes, steppe, volcanoes, (passing Border Control).
Lush valleys, sparse plains,
grande rivers, and moraines.
The schedule – well ordered.
Long drives – well rewarded
with views – unsurpassed,
giving visions, to last
Passenger numbers - just seven, then, plus one, then, plus eight.
Was our timekeeping ever late?
No. Our group was well managed,
Well fed, watered, (but one was damaged), from a slip on the loose scree
- such adventure is NOT risk free.
We hiked in iconic places,
with big smiles on our faces.
We saw where forests, lakes and glaciers meet.
Oh, the rhythm of nature is ever so sweet.
And in the landscape so rugged, all colours – alive, we were lucky to watch rare Torrent Ducks dive.
Many highlights, all amazing in every way, with special surprises – what a “Happy Birthday”!!
Tasty meat, fish, empanadas, casuella, and “Happy Hours”
with wines, beer, “Iceswan”, and, of course, Picosours.
The experience was more than the sum of its parts.
The memories made will live on in our hearts.
Words cannot express the expertise of this “Team”.
“Viva”, you surpassed expectations, fulfilling our dream.
Melinda and Franco, we thank you.
