If the first four days in southern Aysen reminded me of the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, the next three days in the north reminded me of The Olympic Peninsula in Washington State and SE Alaska.
For the next few days we explored Aysen, the Patagonian region that inspired dreamers, adventurers, and entrepreneurs like Yvon Chouinard, the founder of the clothing company, Patagonia, and Doug Tompkins, the founder of Esprit and The North Face.
Kayaking the Marble Caves of Patagonia
Gliding around and through turquoise-hued, marble formations in a kayak? Doesn’t get much better than that.
In a Remote Corner of a Remote Country
After three flights and an 11 hour drive on a lonely highway over 2 and half days, we finally made it to paradise — the Mallin Colorado Ecolodge on General Carrera Lake in the heart of Chilean Patagonia.
Medieval Fantasy on the Italian Coast
Imagine a Medieval town overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, like a fantasy setting for the “Game of Thrones,” except brighter and lighter, with less blood. Imagine five of these towns, and you have Cinque Terre, Italy.
Grand Train Tour of Switzerland
That’s what it’s called. Grand, indeed. I can’t think of a better way to end our Covid-induced international travel drought. Mountains, lakes, trains, and some of the fattest cows I’ve ever seen.
Rocky Mountain High

Cruising in a Bubble Down the California Coast
Like you, the Adventure Geezer has been stuck at home while Covid-19 rages through the USA — with one very welcome exception.
A Journey of Discovery in SE Asia
After 9 weeks of travel in Europe, Indonesia and PNG I returned to one of my favorite destinations, SE Asia, for an additional two weeks, adding up to 11 countries in 80 days. I guess there is still some adventure left in this geezer.
Hanging with Mick at Rondon Ridge Lodge (Papua New Guinea)
Mick Jagger, that is. Well, not really. But he was here too, at Rondon Ridge, a luxury lodge in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea, just a few years ago.
