It’s often thought that in the worlds wildest places, the best views are only accessible to those willing to push themselves to the limits. Patagonia, found at the tip of South America straddling the borders of Chile and Argentina while following the spine of the Andes to their southern reaches, is often thought of one of those wild places which rewards only the fittest. It isn’t true.
It’s a big wide world out there and sometimes the hardest part of taking a trip is deciding where to go. As a lifelong learner, you know you want to travel somewhere with history and learn about a culture that is completely foreign to your own.
The village of Oia on Greece’s island of Santorini, with its blue roofs, beautiful hillside setting and the amazing Aegean Sea as a backdrop, is one of Greece’s top tourist spots.
On the southern tip of South America straddling Chile, Argentina and the Andes lies Patagonia, a wild and far flung region with little settlement but big landscapes. Wide sweeping plains give way to mountains that tower in the horizon with granite peaks that scratch the skyline. Huge glaciers crash into the blue lakes that form at their melting point, and icy breezes blow icebergs to the shorelines.
Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile’s Patagonia region is one breathtaking view after another. If you make one big trip in your life, this should be it!
