Well, it’s late July. Not sure exactly how time travels so quickly but if we could monetize that speed none of us would need to work ever again. In this short time, I realized a few things. First, I kinda sorta needed a job. Second, a shower and haircut were imminent. And third, I wasContinue reading “The Return: (North) ‘Merica”
During the week, it was Alexa’s birthday. She runs the childrens’ home and we all ran to a beautiful farm to celebrate the day. The farm was organic and used ingenious methods to grow crops and other plants cheaply and efficiently. It was so much cooler on the top of the mountain where the grassesContinue reading “A Reunion in Haiti – vol. 2”

It didn’t hurt to make some great friends along the way in Esquel and some of the other smaller towns along the way. Lots of time for reflection atContinue reading “6 Days”
9. Climbing down and up colca canyon in Peru and meeting wonderful people. It was a challenge, walking down, along, and back up the canyon walls. Thankfully we had good company and great views. It was a hot 3 days of hiking with lots of very dry trails but as always it was completely worthContinue reading “9 Days”
10. Descending on the smoky mountain of Machu Picchu. It was dawn. We woke at 3 and started hiking at 5. As the sun shone through, we curled around the trail leading up to the sun gate. It was cloudy and we couldn’t see the famed ruin. So we climbed down the final stretch ofContinue reading “10 Days”
So for this post, I’d like to focus on about 2 weeks of time. These two weeks were one of my most highly anticipated ones, right next to spending time in Colombia for what I think to be obvious reasons. But was the time I’d be spending in and around Torres del Paine national park.Continue reading “Hiking with New Friends”
