The experiences (and rembrances) of traveling
I was also reminded that our first major international trip was 4 weeks in Southern Chile in 2002, including a 5-day circuit in Torre de Paine National Park. Remarkable. Even though we'd traveled in Canada, Europe, and Central America and Mexico previously, as well as various places in the U.S., Patagonia seemed really far away.
It turned out to be a wonderful trip, full of beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes, seashores, wide vistas, glaciers, and penguins, and the start of many visits to South America.
I came across a post that I wrote last spring just before we returned home from Italy. It sets the stage for continuing a series of posts about special places we've visited in the world and the rhythms of traveling and coming home.

There’s always a road ahead, and a garden to return home to.
Back to writing about Patagonia tomorrow.
