Hacia el Sur!/ Heading South!

What began as a slow evolving dream has come together in quick succession these past few days. With the swiftness of time we are in motion all at once, following the Carretera Austral south through Patagonia. Our mode of travel at the moment is by foot and hitch hiking. The simplicity of to road embraces us constantly. We carry with us all we need and gather the rest along the way- including our horses and route information. As we move south hitching rides and having countless conversations with fellow travelers and locals alike, we are constantly filled with gratitude for the kindness of strangers.

Lo que empezó como un sueño se a unida en una rápida sucesión en los últimos días, con la rapidez del tiempo estamos en movimiento, siguiendo la carretera Austral hacia el sur a travesando la Patagonia. Por el momento nos movemos a dedo o pie, cargando todo lo que necesitamos y recogiendo el resto por el camino como los caballos e información a medida que viajamos y conocemos infinidad de personajes, constantemente nos llenamos de gratitud por la bondad de desconocidos.

Dusty roads and drizzly campsites; glistening lakes and rivers in hues of blues beyond imagination; mountains and glaciers so grand they steal the breath from our lungs- this is Patagonia. The stories are piling up already, but patience is essential as we prioritize the present and embrace each moment as it unfolds before us. So, until we have a little more time to write and share these stories, we’ll leave the photos to tell the stories themselves.

Caminos polvorientos y campings mojados; relucientes lagos y ríos en tonos de azules más allá de la imaginación; montañas y glaciares tan grandes que te roban el aliento – así es la Patagonia. Los cuentos ya se están amontonando, pero consideramos que la paciencia es esencial ya que priorizamos el presente y abrazaos cada momento a medida que se van desarrollando. Así que hasta que tengamos un pelo mas de tiempo para escribirlas, dejamos que las fotos hablen por si solas!

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”- Henry David Thoreau

” Cuando simplificas tu vida, las leyes del universo serán más simples , la soledad no será soledad , la pobreza no será la pobreza , ni debilidad debilidad. ” – Henry David Thoreau
