I am so excited going aboard today. The weather forecast is not promising. Doesn’t matter… for me it is more important to step on Cape Horn, which should, if, happen on Sunday early morning.

But first we are sailing, as close as possible, to Glacier Garibaldi.
Instead we could have gone on a hike to a waterfall, which seems to be a very „wet“ option. Even Thomas hasn’t been attracted…
A hot chocolate brings us back to „room temperature“

„The ice is very, very old. And here you see its end, the ice is dying. Is this too much for you.“ I still remember this conversation. A father explained it to his about four year old daughter at Glacier Perito Moreno. And she was not interested at all…

I am!!! They take us out by rubber duck to get on land for a better view of Glacier Pia in the afternoon.

What a nice story! At Glacier Alley we were sailing pass by Glacier Romanche (Germany), Glacier Roncagli (France), Glacier Italia and Glacier Holanda. For each and every of this glaciers we received a typical snack and drink.

I should not record! While writing postcards to (maybe) post them at Cape Horn tomorrow I wrote: we hopefully step on „Cape of Good Hope“ – hahaha
Thomas saw my mistake (luckily) and I changed it to „…in the Good Hope…“

Tonight can get quiet rough in the open waters of Bahia Nassau.
My clock is set to 05h30 – to maybe (hopefully) watch the sun rising at Cape Horn.

Our last outing takes us to Wolaia Bay where we could enjoy the stunning landscape from uphill during „minutes of silence“

The post barrel is a very old way of sending post around the world. We were writing a postcard to ourselves. Now we have to wait until somebody from Namibia is passing by, takes our card with him and delivers it personally to us.

Hmmm, again lecker hot chocolate, obviously with a shot of whiskey.

We met interesting people aboard:
Thomas Arnold & Tony Eitnier (travelling bloggers – http://www.contemporarynomad.com)
Suzan Luijten & Danielle Schrier from Holland (www.suusendaan.reislogger.nl)
Milton & Helena Roos from Brasil
