“Explore an eye-popping frontier unchanged since the days of the Klondike Gold Rushers. Embark on a mystical trans-Himalayan trek, reliving the legend of the Second Buddha. Tide horseback across the Chilean/Argentinian border in the hoof prints of General José de San Martin’s Army of the Andes.”

“You Know You’re a travelgirl If… you’ve smelled the breath of a hippopotamus…you’ve run off a mountain with a man and a parachute strapped to your back…you’ve been in a country where there are more sheep than humans.”
