I've been around the Horn and now I'm back!

Russell and I just returned from an incredible trip. We went on our first ever cruise from Santiago, Chile to Rio de Janiero, Brazil. It took 16 days and we saw places we would never have seen had we not been on this trip.

We traveled with 13 friends and had a great time. Everyone got along and other than a few days of bad weather, the seas were calm and the sun was shining. Even in the Falklands the weather was unusually nice. Some of our group were disappointed as we rounded the Horn and the sea was like glass.

I am posting this photo only from our trip as we have a blog. This photo represents what I most wanted to see- the far reaches of the world in a surreal landscape....seeing the Chilean fiords and channels made our trip absolutely brilliant and stellar for me. I will never forget those days.


and I also have a lot of photos posted on my flickr site


You can go to this blog and read all about our adventures. It truly was a trip of a lifetime.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
