ARGENTINA - CHILE: Picking up the pieces | Michael McQueen

ARGENTINA - CHILE: Picking up the pieces | Michael McQueen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


After fighting a cold in Bariloche I fled south hoping to put some serious miles on my motorbike and really get stuck into Patagonia. I re-entered Chile at Futalefew and started my journey on the Carretera Austral, a very well known road for cyclist and motorcyclist. Just after crossing the border I entered the unpredictable environment of Patagonia. It rained, it was windy, it was cold. I found the road to be absolutely terrible, it was like riding on a dried up river bed where some sections the rocks the road was made of were bigger than my head. I persevered and made it to a small road side town La Junta. My boots were full of water, I was cold, wet and shaken to my bones from the road.. I checked into a hotel and the day was over......

Love, Life and everything in between in Valparaiso, Chile | Adriah Seah

Love, Life and everything in between in Valparaiso, Chile | Adriah Seah | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Notwithstanding the fact that we were in Valparaiso over Valentine’s Day, there was certainly a passion and a palpable love of life evident in everyday Valparaiso. Be it the group of oldtimers in a band practicing their music on a street corner or the numerous ‘Te Quiero’, ‘Te Amo’ graffitied on the walls of the streets by lovelorn young Romeos hoping to impress their respective Juliets, Valparaiso has a sense of energy lacking in many other cities. Ultimately, whilst the architecture, look and feel of a city forms the first impressions on a visitor, it is the inhabitants that define the soul of the city....

Chile: Heading South | Michael McQueen

Chile: Heading South | Michael McQueen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


After some time with family and friends here, I have headed out on my own, just me, my motorcycle and my cameras. After much deliberation I decided to head south first, this means a couple of things.. 1. its heading into summer here so I’m not going to be freezing my a$$ off the whole time and 2. TORRES DEL PAINE or known best to some as Patagonia up first. Now when I say first, it’s gonna take me awhile to get there, it’s almost 2500Km away from me still, but I feel I will be taking the most scenic route there. Buying my motorcycle in Concepcion and riding to my cousins house in Los Angeles (not the one with the big HOLLYWOOD sign * that i once climbed *) and right now I’m in a city called Temuco. While in Los Angeles I went on a small adventure to a National Park. Laguna del Laja. Approaching the park the scenery was amazing, just a straight road heading towards a snow patched volcano. The park started out with huge gorges with green forest and an in season wild yellow flower, once in the park a mere 10min drive on the gravel road the sights changed drastically! It was turning into this black volcanic scape the trees were gone as were the flowers, it was just black everything.....
