After a snowy winter in Switzerland, and a great time in the Caribbean teaching kayaking, I was once again back in my paradise on the shores of the Futaleufu river in Chile.

We spent two weeks paddling, horsebackriding, building, making furniture for the cabin etc, and was blessed with sunshine all around. It was an amazing time with good friends, and the place is looking better and better every year. Ron´s carpentry skills definitely come in handy, even if he swears over chilean tools and ways once in a while!

Three days of driving has put us in Villa O´higgins, at the end of the Carretera Austral. Ron and myself will today paddle into Lago Christie, hike over a pass and drop into Lago Alegre. This was our put-in during the first descent of the rio Bravo in 2006, when we used a floatplane to get in. At the confluence with the Bravo we will shoulder our boats and walk upstream, to see what lies in the headwaters of the river. Depending on what we find, we should be back out in civilization in a weeks time.


See you all then, enjoy the photos from the past two weeks!
