Catching up & Chile Part 1

Wow!  Where has the time gone!  The past 6 months seem to have been a whirlwind of activity, none of which included updating my blog.

During that time I have been on a wine tour in South America, a photo tour of Monument Valley, travelling up the Oregon Coast, camping a couple of times in Jasper, and backpacking in David Thompson country.  Over the next few weeks I hope to get caught up on my blog posts for these many adventures!

The first of these adventures, as mentioned above, was a wine tour to Chile and Argentina.  The trip was organized through a wine club that we belong to, The Opimian Society, led by Janine and Daryl Koroluk, Area Representatives for the Saskatoon Chapter.

We arrived in Santiago, Chile a couple of days prior to the official start of the tour.  Our hotel was located in a beautiful area of the city, close to restaurants, museums and parks.  We even found a street full of yarn shops for my wife!

One of the sites I really enjoyed was the Museum of Fine Arts, a short walk from the hotel at the end of a beautiful park.

By the end of our second day, most of the rest of our group had arrived.  We were about to set off on a week and a half of wine tasting and touring Chile.  More about that in my next post.
