Dear Food Diary:
We had a fun time and filled our tummies at Estancia 25 de Mayo the day before. Now what we so anxiously been waiting was finally happening. At the crack of dawn, we left from El Calafate to the Perito Moreno Glacier. Where we did trekking, drank some whisky with glacier ice, had chocolate alfajores and enjoyed our every minute with this spectacular natural wonder.
TREKKING on the glaciers
Geared up and were ready to go!!! I was glad they helped us, since in Iceland, they sorta left it up to us and I don’t try my skills.
As groups of us hiked up the glaciers, everyone looked like ants on a mountain of glistening sugar.
We were really blessed with gorgeous weather. The reflection of the blue sky, made it magically white and blue (sorta like the Argentinean flag). We explored crevices and tried to get as close to them as possible, which wasn’t easy. Our guides helped us along many unpredictable areas. Some were so narrow, it made me very nervous. But in the end it was well worth it.
I took a sip of this pure water. Icy cold, perfect after all that hike up.
While at the top, our much anticipated refueling stop arrived.
It doesn’t really get any better than this! Icy cold whisky that warmed me all the way to my toes. The alfajor (typical Argentinean cookie sandwich, with dulce de leche center and covered in chocolate) made this sweet moment of being on top that much sweeter. I savored every minute.
As I stayed to help myself with a bit more… I noticed the group leaving and it suddenly hit me, trekking up sober was scary enough, who’s genius idea was it to drink and then go down!? LOL

This was one of my most memorable trips and travel experiences. My photos don’t do it justice, I think everyone
should must go there once in their lifetime.
