Ever since I first set up this website, there has been an entry "Viaje en los Andes - still dreaming". For one reason or another this trip has kept on being postponed, but at last that dream is about to be realised. The fair Nello and I leave for South America in the middle of March.
I was fortunate enough to make several short visits to Argentina just prior to finishing my pre-trekking career and this part of the world, with its fascinating landscapes and warm, friendly people, has not been far from my thoughts since; in particular the Andes, that 6000 km long chain of mountains that, for me, defines this continent. And so we head off to explore them, their snowy-capped peaks, smoking volcanoes, shimmering lakes, deserts, jungles, glaciers and rich culture of civilisations past and present.
