While Lourien still is down under, a couple of my former classmates went to southern America to do some hiking, and they seem to do pretty well 🙂
Their travel-blog can be found here, yet it also can be reached by clicking the appropriate link on the right.

Marita & Martijn: Enjoy! I am pretty envious of the fact you’re there and we have to scrape our windshields every morning as the temperature still drops below zero at night. I’m wondering whether we will get the spring-weather they have promised soon…
I’ve already pitched you an email to book the photo-evening! 😉
