Border Hopping Between Chile And Argentina

We have moved away from the beach and into the forest and we could not be happier! Officially we have entered the Norther Patagonia mountain range, bouncing back through Chile and Argentina driving through their famous Lake Districts, National Parks and Rutas. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Offroading Through Bolivia

Bolivia is a beautiful country which we wish we could have explores more of if it weren’t for our lack of patience at the particular time we visited.
