Starting the trip, I flew to Montevideo on 18 December to prepare with the transport company for the arrival of the car and to explore the town. On 22 December I crossed the Rio La Plata to stay a few days in Buenos Aires and later to visit the world-famous Iguazu waterfalls which are located in the triangle formed by Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
On 31 Dec 2016 I set off for Patagonia travelling both, the Ruta 40 (Argentina) and the Carretera Austral (Chile). During this journey I first visited Bariloche, El Bolson and the National Park Alerces (all in Argentina) from where I moved to Futalefu (Chile) and travelled south along the Carretera Austral before crossing back to Argentina where I visited the Glacier National Park (Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre). Last section of the travel was the National Park Torres del Paine in Chile.
End of January 2017 I continue further south travelling through Terra del Fuego. In February I starting driving north using the Ruta Nacional 3 which follows the Atlantic Coast visiting various national parks. Mid-February I turned West visiting Piedra Parada and el Bolson.
After spending a week in Bariloche / Argentina I crossed the boarder again and travelled three weeks through South-Central Chile before returning again to Argentina. In March 2017 I travelled through the provinces Mendoza, San Juan, Cordoba and La Rioja.
In April I moved further north and travelled the Puna Region (North-west Argentina) and the Calchaquies Valley. During May 2017 crossed Northern Chile / Atacama Desert from where I continued in June 2017 travelling through southern Bolivia. After a three-month break I resumed travelling in September 2017 moving through North-West Bolivia.
In October my girlfriend Ursula Forster joined me for the trip and together we are currently travelling through Peru and Ecuador.
