2 months ago today

This morning I headed to the hills directly back from the city of Ushuaia.  After only 15 minutes of walking I was completely immersed in Patagonian forest, meandering along a picturesque river and surrounded by trees, glorious trees.
When a place with scenes so dramatic such as South Georgia, you fail to notice the lack of trees. And having spent 2 months away from such flora I did not how I missed them so.

During my hike, there was a consistant breeze that rustled the branches and leaves and it was easy to tell which direction the prevailing winds hailed from.  All the trees had a significant lean to one side where the ceaseless winds accelerate up the Beagle Channel from open ocean.

Once I had reached the summit, I spent some time writing in my journal.  At one stage I glanced down towards Ushuaia and with my binnoculars I scanned the marina where the Northanger is usually moored.  Only a few sailboats were tied to the dock preparing for a trip.  I realised it was today, 2 months ago when we departed from Ushuaia, my stomach knotted with excitement and nerves and extremely eager to be on our way.  Little did we know then what adventures and dramas awaited us.

Tomorrow we fly to Buenos Aries, our first leg of many in our journey home.  I am definitely more than ready to be on my way, back to B.C, back to work and back to my friends and family whom await my arrival.

Stay tuned for more photos, calender of events and presentation dates, as well as progress updates on my book and film production.  So much to do, and it's all so very exciting :)Cheers, Hayley

Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Annapurna base camp trek, which begins at 1,090m, climbs to 4,130m at ABC. It is fairly demanding, but is suitable for beginners or adventure trekkers: provided you are reasonably fit and walk slowly up the higher slopes. From Pokhara, a bus will take you to Nayapul from where you will walk, from ridge to river over many ridges, as the trail gradually climbs past villages and terraced farmlands or bird-filled forests of rhododendron, oak, maple and pine.
