After my fantastic relaxing break in the fall-drenched Queenstown, I was rested and off to complete the last leg of my journey. I took the InterCity bus from Queenstown to Franz Josef Glacier, an 8 hour bus ride that could have easily been done in 6 hours (because they stopped

Every summer when I was growing up, my parents would dutifully take me on trips to some of America’s finest national parks. Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Glacier, the Grand Tetons, Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park… We’d go for two weeks and try to explore as much as possible, having fun

See my entire 55 Places bucket list here.  When I finally got to Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, the first place I headed was Grey Lake, home to magnificent icebergs and the Grey Glacier. I think "chill" would be the operative word with this particular adventure.

The journey to complete my 55 Places bucket list continues...October 16, 2009 at 8:19 am, I had my first glance of South America from my Delta Airlines window seat. I was happy and relaxed, because (lucky me) I didn't have anyone sitting next to me on the long overnight flight.
