Making Memories

posted on 2019-12-15 11:57:39 in Patagonia

This is the last blog report from “The Trip”

Unfortunately due to some rather difficult weather conditions the final treks could not be made due to flooding on the tracks.  A little disappointing after such good weather and a great trip.

Did the trip live up to expectations – Yes most definitely !

I was brilliant to be able to spend so much quality time with Thomas, making memories. Whether it was to working together as a team using our strengths, facing the challenges or just walking in each other’s company exploring new places or revisiting NZ and the sights and our favourite missed foods! All moments to be cherished, stored but never forgotten. The photos taken will ensure that never happens and to finish I thought I would post a small selection of pictures from the trip that have not been posted before.

Enjoy the final chapter of “Making Memories” trip.
