Trip of Lifetime – Earlier this year, I made a trip of a lifetime, travelling across Perus, Argentina, Chile and Brazil in three weeks. I remain impressed by the smartness of the Inca, the thundering Iguazu Falls, the majestic Torres del Paine, and the breathtaking Perito Moreno glacier. While at the Torres del Paine National Park, I stayed at the Eco Camp. We had just endured a strenuous eight-hour trek the day before so we were taking it easy this particular day. Travelling by van, our guide brought us to countless places of interest. We stopped at this particular spot where we saw a group of condors devouring a guanaco (a local long-neck animal that provides fibers in Andes region) while on the opposite side of the van, I saw small lakes reflecting the mountain range’s snowcapped summits. I ran out with my camera and started snapping away, and came back with plenty of beautiful shots.
