On Xmas Day I begin a 10 day unassisted trek around the Torres del Paine in Chile, South America. This Scottish girl can’t quite believe she is about to realise her ultimate travel dream of many years – The Torres del Paine!
Carrying 10 days of food with all camping and cooking equipment is heavy!
Of course being the Scottish lass that I am, I still have a 2 litre box of red wine packed and a wee bottle of whisky for the bells! On the 1st Jan 2016 I will be celebrating the 5am sunrise over the magnificent Torres del Paine with a nip of whisky! Cheers to each and everyone of you and wishing you a truly magnificent 2016! Thank you for being in my life.
Spare a thought for the many people on their own this Xmas & New Year, especially young adults coming out of the care system and the elderly. Perhaps you can squeeze another chair around your table.
Love you all!
