*Video* Beers at Altitude

With so many places, photos, and videos we are never caught up on editing! We have hundreds of hours of video footage, and I figured it was about time to learn how to edit and produce. I spent some time on the train in Germany this week assembling our first video. Recently, we had an awesome day hike in the Swiss Alps, which provided the perfect opportunity to document through a short length video. I think it captures our time better than the photos we took did. It's an amateur attempt, so let me know your thoughts!  Do you prefer video, photos, or a bit of both?? 

Fire & Ice

Bariloche only served as a basecamp for our Patagonian adventures and introduced us to some of the challenges we would be facing throughout Patagonia - namely, finding cash, finding buses, finding wi-fi.  I see it now as an opportunity to practice patience; at the time I was ripping my hair out, and when the Rentalcars.com customer service representative informed me via email that our rental car was no longer available - two hours before pick-up - a frustratingly accurate proverb from Murphy crossed my mind: if it can go wrong, it will.  But it eventually worked out and we scored a set of wheels.  Getting to San Martin alone could fill the page with blue skies, summer sun, glacial lakes, sandy beaches, unsuccessful hitchhikers, and a soundtrack of suffering transmission and rattling car parts brought to you by General Motors in the form of a mid 90s Chevy Classic - our carriage for the next four days.  We arrived to San Martin three hours late, spent two hours gathering provisions from five different stores, and finally drove to the outskirts of town, down a dirt road towards a “rendezvous” with our AirBNB host, Valeria.
