Patagonia's climate diversity is so intriguing... I can't believe they have glaciers in southern Argentina! They're also some of the most derelict areas in the world, i've not been but it will be top of my list when I finish University. Smile

Patagonia is massively on my list for travelling next year! They speak Welsh there, dontcha know?! Bloody expensive to get there though...

Fly to Buenos Aires and get a bus down there, takes a day or two but the coaches are brilliantly comfortable and the scenery is awesome. Stop at Peninsula Valdes on the way for some great nature watching.
I didn't go as far down as the glaciers when I was there, really regret that now. Frown

Don't think flights to Bs As are too expensive. Think

I've never really considered south America at all as a place I would like visit, always had other places higher on the list, but after what you guys have said, my mind is being changed! Also I was over looking the fact that they speak Spanish/ Portugease which could bs useful.... Very Happy

South America is awesome, easy to get around and so much to see. It should be right up there on anyone's list.

My brother tells me South America is a wonderful place - he hitched through most of it 30/40 years ago with his friend - the Andes and Matchu Pitchu (sorry can't spell it) has always been a place I'd love to go although now I don't think the high atmosphere would do me much good. Iceland is a fascinating place too by all accounts. Us oldies who enjoy adventure in comfort go touring with firms like Titan who collect you from home - carry the bags etc and you still get to amazing places. S America is on the itinery, so's China, Korea but we love exploring America and Yellowstone with its diversity, the geysers and the mud pools and the Grand Canyon heli flight have given us some super memories. Closer to home - dear old Scotland and the islands offer some ecstatic beauty and variety. Must admit I envy Joe his trip - do it all while you're young but save some of the easy  bits for later - like the Grand Canyon for instance.

Mmmmm the two extremes I've heard, over commercialised in places and then others are like the lands time forgot.... But yes, it does hold some appeal to me too

Agree Elly....always think Japan in a strange way is totally different to every other country in the world......It,s just a feeling...cant explain it. Think

^ There's a great book by the Scots author, Alan Spence, called 'The Pure Land'.  It's a mixture of fact and fiction and follows the protagonist's life in Japan, culminating in the annihilation of Nagasaki.  Great read - great author  yes

Also check out his book 'Glasgow Zen' .......

On the oneness of self and universe .......... 'IT'S AW WAN TAE ME'

Very clever.  lol
