Traveler Video: Dolphins Racing in Patagonia

The cruise through Patagonia aboard the Navimag ferry was one of the highlights of our round the world tour if for nothing else but the fact that we could share that experience with Jess’ sister. As all good fairy tales come true, in the evening of a wonderful day, I was taking the Chilean breeze in when literally out of the blue, two dolphins appeared and raced our boat for a few magical seconds. Since I am no expert, I am unsure whether these are bottlenose dolphins, skunk dolphins, or dusky dolphins. Any help at identifying those would be appreciated!

Photo from Across Argentina

We took sensibly fewer photos in Argentina but trust me we had just had much fun as everywhere else. It was probably only postpartum syndrome after Lauren left us. All those pictures were shot in:

  • Ushuaia, the southern post of Americas,
  • Torres Del Paine moments before a terrible fire scarred it a good deal, and
  • Buenos Aires, the magnetic capital which requires no introduction to enjoy.

You will quickly find out what you are made of and whether the little 4-year old boy inside of you wants to make a come back and cry for his maman.
