Day 1,019: Patagonia and the Chilean Fjords.

Laetitia led a tour that began with several days in Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia and then moved on to the Chilean Fjords. Near a calving glacier in Garibaldi Fjord, the Zodiacs had to cruise to their destinations through brash ice. On their return they were met by the Ship’s steward, who is Swedish, and one of the galley staff, clad in faux Viking helmets who served fortified hot drinks.

Once stern Vikings with helmet and sword
Swedes are also known for smorgasbord
Though one seldom can choose
Hot drinks laced with booze
Like we had down in Garibaldi Fjord.
