 Day 9 Paris - Loire Valley (Breakfast, Lunch)
 The Loire Valley, spanning 280 kilometres (170 mi), is located in the middle stretch of the Loire River in central France. Its area comprises about 800 square kilometres. It is referred to as the Cradle of the French and the Garden of France due to the abundance of vineyards, fruit orchards (such as cherries), and artichoke and asparagus fields, which line the banks of the river. Notable for its historic towns, architecture and wines, the valley has been inhabited since the Middle Palaeolithic period. In 2000, UNESCO added the central part of the Loire River valley to its list of World Heritage Sites. Today, we go on a full day excursion visiting Chateau De Chenonceaux (one of the most well known in Loire Valley) and Chateau De Chambord with a local guide. The royal Château de Chambord at Chambord, Loir-et-Cher, France, is one of the most recognizable châteaux in the world because of its very distinctive French Renaissance architecture which blends traditional French medieval forms with classical Renaissance structures. The building, which was never completed, was constructed by King Francis I of France. Chambord is the largest château in the Loire Valley; it was built to serve as a hunting lodge for Francis I, who maintained his royal residences at the châteaux of Blois and Amboise. The original design of the Château de Chambord is attributed, though with some doubt, to Domenico da Cortona; Leonardo da Vinci may also have been involved.
 Pullman Hotel (4*) or Similar


 Day 10 Paris - Versailles Palace - Paris (Breakfast, Chinese lunch)
 In the morning, we will travel to Versailles to visit this beautiful palace, which is often considered the most beautiful palace in Europe. The Versailles, is a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. In French, it is known as the Château de Versailles. When the château was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a wealthy suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres southwest of the French capital. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime.
 After our lunch, we will travel back to the city centre, and you will enjoy free time to explore Paris, or just go for a Seine River Cruise (at your own expense).

Day 11 Paris (Breakfast)
 Free time till your transfer to the airport for your return flight back to Singapore.

Laguna De Los Tres

Patagonia Trek 2015

Laguna De Los Tres Trek

This is the first day of our trek in Patagonia. We drove from El Calafate to El Chalten, for a 2 hour drive, and pass through the steppes of Patagonia.

Shortly after we arrived, we were given our packed lunch for the day, and then a briefing by our guide, before we embarked on our most memorable trek in the beautiful and pristine Patagonia.

Patagonia is a region which covers part of Chile and Argentina. It is such a beautiful place with lovely shimmering lakes, and offers trekkers one of the most exceptional experience with little chance of getting mountain (or altitude) sickness. We trekked only up to about 1,000m.

El Chalten, is a small mountain village located in Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. It is situated by the riverside of Rio De Las Vueltas, within the Los Glaciares National Park, at the base of Cerro Torre and Cerro Fitz Roy mountains. It is the trekking capital of Patagonia, and existed solely for the people who come here for embarking on their trekking trip in the Patagonia. It is 220 km north of El Calafate.

El Chalten is named for Cerro Fitz Roy's Tehuelche name, meaning 'peak of fire' or 'smoking mountain.

In this post, I share with you some of the pictures that I took while on the trek.

Having our briefing session with Huan, our guide.

We left our belongings behind, and took only our day pack as we are going to camp for two nights at Poincenot Camp.

                                           We started our trek here at El Chalten.

Beautiful Laguna Capri,

We could see Mt Fitz Roy in the background.

This is said to be the best view point here by the river.

                                                   More pictures at this view point.

                                            Continuing our trek to the campsite.
                                                        Heading to Poincenot.

                                                           I love our campsite.
                                                 Dinner time at our campsite.
This is a permanent camp, which is taken care of by our trekking agency in Patagonia. So, the tents are all set up for the trekking season, and so after each group leaves, the tents are remain erected there. We have a dining tent, and one toilet. There is no bathing facilities here, but campers can easily just go to the river to wash up.

More Pictures to come.

Picchu, the Amazon Forest as well as Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio De Janeiro.

In this gallery, I will showcase some of the best photos that I had taken on both of my trips. And I will add on more as I visit Ecuador, Bolivia and the rest of the countries!

Antonio Pigafetta together with Ferdinand Magellan and his crew arrived in the Gulf of San Julian (Santa Cruz Province) in 1520. Some historians think that the immense footprints left by those Tehuelche hunters led Magellan to call them patagones, a deformation of pata gao, which means "big foot" in Portuguese. Others hold that the term derives from Pathafon, a character of the novel Primaleon, a favourite of the Portguese conquistador. For Magellan, those Indians seemed horrible to him, and thus he called the region "Big Foot country" or "Patagonia".


Fantastic view at Laguna De Los Tres.

Cusco, UNESCO listed city, and the gateway to Machu Picchu.

Starfish, Luli and Cowrie islands.
The above picture is that of the Starfish.
It was rather sunny that morning, until just before lunch, when the dark clouds came.

On Day 2, we went for the Underground River Cruise
The River has a length of 8.2 km, but we only took the boat ride for about 1.5km into the cave.
When we turn off the lights, we could not even see anything. It is pitch dark inside the cave.

Lovely hat.

Our DreamTrip is like a land package, as it caters for all our members who are living in different countries, and we all have to buy our own air tickets from our own country to join in. But on the trip, we meet so many different nationalities - Korean, Taiwanese, Chinese, Malaysian, Hong Kong, Spainish, and English. It is specially curated and it is not meant to be dirt cheap. However, we stay at quality hotels - at least 4 star, and most of the times , 5 stars. And enjoy VIP privilege.
