WHALE-WATCHING IN PUERTO MADRYN, UNIQUE AND UNFORGETTABLE


We woke up quite early in the morning and the city of Puerto Madryn was yawning by the shores of the Golfo Nuevo. The sun light up the while we were watching this breathtaking scene in complete silence and behind our warm cups of coffee.

Bravely, we left the hotel to face up the cold windy morning. Andrés, our tour guide, told us how his Welsh ancestors had arrived during a similar morning in the peninsula more than one hundred years ago. They were trying to get their dream of making their nation in the Patagonia.

Once on the van, while we were crossing the Patagonian steppe, the “mates” (the typical Argentinean hot drink) came into scene and the conversation turned friendlier. In this way we came acquainted with the stories of the people who live, work and love in these rugged lands; the native’s culture, the Welsh tradition, the B&R (born and raised) and all those people who conformed this dreamer and rebel southern identity characterized by insurrection and dreams.

When we arrived in “Puerto Pirámides”, the sea had taken the blue to sky and as unraveling it into a thousand waves of foam. The landscape was offered to us with all its mystery and we were walking where the sea had been millions of years ago: marine fossils are everywhere giving testimony of them.

We went into the sea armed with fashionable orange lifejackets. In that moment, we were as children expecting for something marvelous to happen. We were participating in the first whale watching navigation of the season and our eyes were so open that they had started to hurt.

We almost did not blink; the more we enter into the sea the more anxious we were. The experience had also a special emotion; we knew that one of those whales who visit the peninsula periodically could be Alfonsina, the recent southern right whale that we had adopted.

So we saw them… far, far away. A tale, a fin, the backwaters, our tour guides told us that the encounter was close. The sightings were succeeding and it seemed as if our sea friends were trying very hard to catch our attention: one of them dived into the water doing stunts, the other let us watching its tale up in the water; a third was shooting a water jet into the sky.

The exclamations of joy and tenderness were immediate. We walked from side to side of the ship to appreciate as much as we could. Cameras and camcorders could not get all the present wonder and beauty. Nature was throwing a party and we were invited to celebrate!

A whale with its calf came too closed to our boat. Our tour guide explained us that they were a female whale with her child born one year before and the games they were playing were the last before they got apart: they had been together for a year and it was time for the calf to start its life on its own.

Perhaps, this powerful influence that whales have on us may not be another thing that seeing our own life’s values: love, family, freedom, natural connection being part of the unique and mysterious universe…

The truth is that whale watching is a unique experience that can connect us with essential emotions and feelings that teach us that life is holy and loving in all its expressions and struggling to keep it is our outmost aim that we have every day.

AVISTAJE EN PUERTO MADRYN, ÚNICO E INOLVIDABLE


Nos levantamos muy temprano por la mañana. La ciudad de Puerto Madryn bostezaba a orillas del Golfo Nuevo. El sol incendiaba el mar y nosotros lo mirábamos en silencio, refugiados tras nuestras tazas de café caliente.

Salimos valientemente a enfrentarnos con el viento frio de la mañana. Andrés, nuestro guía, nos contaba cómo en un amanecer como ese, su familia, colonos galeses que arribaron a la península hace más de cien años, habían dado comienzo al sueño de “hacer patria” en la Patagonia.

Ya en la camioneta, mientras cruzábamos la estepa patagónica, los mates criollos hicieron su aparición necesaria y la charla se hizo de amigos. Así supimos de las historias de la gente que vive, trabaja y ama en estas tierras agrestes: la cultura aborigen, las tradiciones galesas, los NYC (nacidos y criados) y todos los que conforman esta identidad sureña, rebelde y soñadora.

Cuando llegamos a Puerto Pirámides, el mar le había robado el azul al cielo y jugaba a deshilacharlo en mil olas de espuma. El paisaje se nos ofrecía en todo su misterio. Estábamos pisando lo que millones de años atrás había sido el fondo del mar: dondequiera que la mirada se posara, los fósiles marinos daban testimonio de ello.

Nos hicimos a la mar pertrechados de coquetos salvavidas color naranja. En ese momento éramos niños a la expectativa de que lo maravilloso ocurriera. Estábamos participando de la primera navegación para avistaje de ballenas de la temporada y los ojos nos dolían de tan abiertos que los teníamos.

Casi no parpadeábamos, la ansiedad aumentaba a medida que nos íbamos internando mar adentro. La experiencia tenía además una emoción especial. Sabíamos que, entre las ballenas que periódicamente visitan la península, podría estar Alfonsina, nuestra recién adoptada ballena Franca Austral.

Entonces las vimos, a lo lejos. Una cola, una aleta, un remanso en el agua, nos decían que el encuentro estaba próximo. Los avistajes fueron sucediéndose, parecía que nuestras amigas se esforzaban por ganar nuestra atención: una de ellas se zambullía y hacia piruetas, la otra dejaba ver su cola en alto, una tercera tiraba un chorro de agua al cielo.

Las exclamaciones de asombro y de ternura no se hicieron esperar. Íbamos de un lado al otro del barco para no perdernos un solo movimiento. Las cámaras fotográficas y las filmadoras no daban abasto para registrar tanta maravilla. La naturaleza estaba de fiesta y todos estábamos invitados a festejar!

Una ballena se situó muy cerca de la embarcación junto a su ballenato. Nuestro guía nos explicó que se trataba de una cría nacida el año pasado, y los juegos que compartía con su madre no eran otra cosa que las instancias previas a su despedida. Habían pasado un año juntos y ahora llegaba el momento de que el joven ballenato comenzara su vida independiente.

Quizás esta poderosa influencia que ejercen las ballenas sobre nosotros no sea otra cosa que ver reflejados en ellas nuestros propios valores de vida: el amor, la familia, la libertad, la conexión con la naturaleza, el sentirnos parte de este universo misterioso y único.

Lo cierto es que el avistaje de ballenas es una experiencia única que nos pone en contacto con emociones y sentimientos esenciales, que nos enseña que la vida es sagrada y amorosa en todas sus expresiones y que luchar por conservarla es la misión más importante que tenemos cada día.

THE CHRISTMAS EVE THAT I REMEMBER


December in Argentina is quite hot, especially because only three days before Christmas, the summer begins.

I remember that in this time of the year, the routine was repeated, year after year, no doubt. The 24th, my sisters and I used to arrive early at my grandmother’s house to help her preparing everything for the big night. Few hours later my cousins arrived and we all waited quiet and anxious for the clock to give the 12 to go and get our presents under the Christmas tree, the one that I helped decorating, very exciting, some days before Christmas.

Of course, there were no big chimneys, no elk, or deer… not even big decorations; but what was always there, no doubt, was the whole family: adults, elderly and children. Everyone, together, gathered around a large table (that as the years passed it seemed to me that it was getting smaller, although it was always the same). I remember that everyone was happy, expectantly, as if that time of the year was special, something magic. As the time passed by, I realized that, maybe, that feeling with which adults expected Christmas, with which they prepared everything and with which they waited the family reunion, that excitement, was produced because every Christmas Eve reminded them the ones that they lived in their childhood, when Christmas is more a magic story than a Christian holiday. It is the shearing, the enjoying, the excitement, the laughs, the mourn, the meetings with old friends who live far away… it is that feeling of being together and discovering the good and valuable things we have in this life.

As a child, I used to get increasingly anxious with each passing minute and I was constantly watching the clock… the eleven o’clock, half past eleven, quarter to twelve, ten to twelve… it was almost the moment…. From there my eyes focused on the sky and, with my sisters and cousins, we looked for an old man in the dark, with a red costume and a big white beard, carrying a big red bag with cars, dolls, bicycles, balls and toys, coming from unimaginable places… But it always happened the same, in some distraction, Santa Clause landed who knows where his sleds, and left the presents under the Christmas tree, with name and surname so nobody confuse the packages. Everyone received gifts, adults and children… Even grandparents!

As an adult, I choose Buenos Aires to celebrate this holiday with my family, although now is smaller than 25 years ago. Visiting Buenos Aires before Christmas is having thousands of unimaginable ways of expressing the same feelings.

From late November and early December begins the preparations to make the city look like a huge Christmas tree, where the shops invite you to a fantasy and illusion trip, with their storefronts decorated, waiting for Christmas.

The streets are not far behind. It worth getting lost along the most important Avenues as Santa Fe, Callao, Corrientes or the 9th July Avenue itself, or around the small streets of traditional neighborhoods as San Telmo, Palermo, Belgrano, Recoleta, la Boca or the city center, where the colours of Santa Clause paint everything they touch.

Besides the Obelisk that decorated or not is the main Christmas tree of the city, hundreds of other trees are lighted every night, either by its owners themselves or by some institution which celebrates Christmas that way.

That’s why, even it isn’t exist the snow of New York, the elk of Montreal or the camels and kings of Middle East, this city gets unforgettable during this part of the year. Impossible to be ignored.

Buenos Aires allows us to dream again, as when we were kids. Where the possibility of crossing just around the corner the elusive Santa Claus was something that could certainly happened to us.

Nueva Revista Compromiso de Metropolitan Touring


El Mundo en el que vivimos y el que queremos heredar a futuras generaciones está en nuestras manos, un hecho que se ve reflejado en cada uno de nuestras actividades que tiene impacto en los recursos naturales. Es un hecho que lo que tomamos de la naturaleza, no lo podemos devolver, por mejores que sean nuestras intenciones. Sin embargo, hay muchas cosas que podemos hacer para aminorar el impacto que causamos.

Metropolitan Touring trabaja constantemente en la búsqueda de nuevos métodos para cumplir con este objetivo, ya que está consciente de que los ecosistemas saludables proporcionan, a largo plazo, bienes y servicios a los seres humanos, que nos ayudan a vivir en un mundo más saludable. Con esto en mente, hemos diseñado una Política Ambiental que busca proveer un mapa a nuestra compañía, que nos ayudará a navegar sobre las aguas de la mejorar manera para implementar prácticas que impacten lo menos posible en la ambiente.

Nuestra Política Ambiental apunta justamente a nuestro giro de negocio y va directo a nuestro trabajo en Galápagos. Es parte de la manera como pensamos, parte de como creamos nuevos productos o nos relacionamos con nuevos asociados, parte del momento en que paramos antes de imprimir cualquier documento.  Todos nosotros hemos presenciado el éxito  de como las ideas simples pueden tener un impacto masivo. Reemplazar las botellas de agua por las botellas rellenables, que se encuentran en todos nuestros barcos: estimamos que en el primer año de esta práctica se ha reducido en un 77% de botellas (con todos los recursos que se usan, asociados a su fabricación y transporte) que mandamos a rellenar en Galápagos. Simple, pero efectivo.

Este año, hemos visto el trabajo de la Fundación Galápagos Ecuador expandirse a nuevos proyectos en las Islas. Trabajando en conjunto con organizaciones gubernamentales locales y otras agencias, en la actualidad contribuimos a proyectos en las 4 islas habitadas. En el área continental de Ecuador, el nuevo hotel de nuestro holding y el nuevo lodge en el bosque montañoso lluvioso de los Andes, han adoptado un diseño inteligente y alojamiento responsable en el país. Y en los 6 países donde operamos, tenemos un impacto positivo y estamos dando grandes pasos para ser más responsables cuando se trata del uso de un recurso natural.

El camino es largo y todavía tenemos un extenso tramo por recorrer. Pero tenemos la esperanza que usted se unirá a esta causa, que nos dirá qué más podemos hacer o nos deje saber que estamos haciendo bien. Esperamos escuchar pronto de usted.

Cada año, producimos la revista Compromiso, un pequeño folleto que testifica nuestros esfuerzos. Vemos  a este documento más que nada, como una herramienta de motivación para nuestro equipo y también para usted, mientras se embarca en un viaje de descubrimiento con Metropolitan Touring.

Metropolitan Touring’s new Commitment magazine


The world in which we live and the one we want to pass on to future generations is in our hands, a truism that is reflected in each and every one of our activities that have an impact on natural resources. To a great extent, we cannot return what we take from Nature, despite our best intentions. However, there are many things we can do to lessen the impact we cause.

Metropolitan Touring is constantly working to find new ways to accomplish this goal, since we are fully aware that healthy ecosystems provide goods and services to humans over the long-term, which in turn help us to live in a healthier world. With this in mind, we designed an Environmental Policy that seeks to provide a road map for our company, to help us navigate the waters of how best to implement practices that impact as little as possible on the environment.

Our Environmental Policy goes right to the heart of our business, and goes far beyond our work in the Galápagos. It’s part of the way we think, part of how we develop new travel products or approach a new partner, part of the moment we pause before clicking on ‘print’ at our desks. All of us have witnessed the success of how what are seemingly simple ideas can have massive impacts. Take replacing disposable water bottles with sturdier, refillable ones on board all our vessels: simple, yet we estimate that, in the first year of the practice alone, 77% less bottles (with all the resource-use associated with their manufacture and transportation to the islands) were sent to the land refill in Galápagos. Simple, yet effective.

Over the last year, we’ve seen the Fundación Galápagos-Ecuador’s work expand to new shores in the islands. Working hand-in-hand with local governments and other agencies, we are today contributing to projects on all four inhabited islands. On mainland Ecuador, our holding group’s new hotel and new Andean rainforest lodge have both raised the bar in intelligent, responsible lodging design in the country. And across the six countries in which we operate, we are having a positive impact and taking steps to be ever-more responsible when it comes to natural resource use.

The road is long and we’ve still a long way to go. But we hope you’re willing to join us on it, to tell us what more we can do or let us know what we’re doing right. We look forward to hearing from you!

Every year, we produce the Commitment, a small booklet, which testifies to our efforts. We look upon this document more than anything as a motivational tool for our team and also for you as you embark on a journey of discovery with Metropolitan Touring.

Patagonia: Land of Fire and Ice at the End of the World


By: Verónica Sevilla L., Commercial Director.

Patagonia is that piece of the Earth, that area at the very end and tip of South America. It is the land where the indomitable nature of its majestic territory meets and gives way to huge oceans just before these reach the fiery ices of Antarctica. It is a place which calls to the souls of travelers, lovers of adventure and nature, who will experience moments like no other, and who will be captivated by stories of great human conquests and new territories.

I begin my trip flying from Quito to Buenos Aires with the help of Metropolitan Touring, arriving at the city of Ushuaia after a long but nevertheless direct flight. The landing itself at Ushuaia was a unique experience, as I was amazed by the sight of the great mountains belonging to the Andes range, the Fagnano Lake which rests in the middle of these giants, and the town itself, which appeared to be nailed to the ground between the mountains and the Beagle Channel. It was evident that this signaled the start of a unique adventure.

This city, filled with incredible story and founded as the main city meant to populate these strange lands (at the beginning of the 20th Century), surprises you from the beginning with its cosmopolitan atmosphere, created by travelers arriving from all over the world.

Packed with top- of- the- notch chocolate stores and gourmet restaurants (which seduce you with the specialties of the area such as Patagonian goat and “centolla”), travelers experience delights which are worthy of even the world´s most respected culinary centers. The San Martin Street, which features adventure and clothing stores of the highest quality, as well as unique bookstores, is the precise location to do some shopping in preparation for your adventure ahead.

Taking a tour of the city in an English Roadster bus from the year 1948, allows us to submerge into the city´s history of indigenous inhabitants and pioneers. Visiting the National Park “Tierra del Fuego,” and enjoying a ride on the “El Fin del Mundo” Train (which travels for 8 km through tracks originally used by the city´s first settlers) while having a look at rivers and valleys of awe- inspiring beauty, are only the appetizer to our next experience: an Expedition Cruise along Patagonia´s Channels up until the “Cabo de Hornos,” where South America ends and both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans combine. All of this done in order to later on adventure ourselves across the “Avenida de los Glaciares” (Glacier Avenue), a hidden treasure for those lucky enough to enjoy this experience, and one which ends at the town of Punta Arenas in Chile.

Along this Cruise we arrive at multiple, unique locations barely touched by Man, where the privilege of solitude in the face of huge glaciers allows us to feel the strength of the water and the exuberance of the ice. Our departure from Ushuaia, and our trip up until “Cabo de Hornos,” where the morning sun was merely a preface of what would be a visit to this amazing place. Previously navigated by buccaneers, brave sailors, and both strong men and women, the trip was over so quickly that it made us think of the many months that it took for them to cross the Channels in centuries past. This place, marked by signs of huge determination and effort, is the goal of every traveler in search of mythical lands.

We spent the next three days sailing along the Strait of Magellan, where we admired every glacier along the way: the Fiordo, the Romanche, the Garibaldi, the Italia, and many others. To know that the Patagonia is one of the few places where glaciers are still formed and move along the mountains and rivers, and to look at and hear the roar of a breaking piece of ice as it falls to the ocean is just an indescribable feeling.

Marvelous walks with the sights of this world of water, earth, and ice evoke within you unique and beautiful feelings fueled by natural energy, which end with a delicious hot chocolate or a whisky prepared with the millennia- old ice from one of the glaciers. The subarctic forest, the Magellanic penguins, the dirt stuck to your shoes as you walk, the sailing through the glaciers with the use of a zodiac, and the wind which overpowers you, are a few of the grandeurs which make up the greatness of the land.

Key ingredients for making this trip such a marvelous experience are the lighthouses locate along the whole of the Strait, which help us in our navigation just as much as they helped sailors 150 years before us. The cruise, its first- class service, gourmet food, and a team prepared and ready for everything, make you feel at home in the icy territories of the Patagonia.

After this one- of- a- kind adventure filled with history, local culture, nature, and enveloped in an atmosphere of warmth, we arrive at Punta Arenas, the southernmost Chilean city at the banks of the Strait of Magellan. A city of history as well, with an interesting French architecture and a constant howl of Patagonian wind, pure only in that majestic land, is where our trip ends.

We make our way back to Santiago, carrying with us our luggage full of new and unique experiences which can only be lived there, at the “End of the World.”

Let’s Tango…!


I don’t like the word “show” very much… It somehow says “artificial and superficial”. During our past trip to Argentina (Mac, Soñita, Paito, Andre, Kari, Moni, Dom – you are fab travel mates, by the way…thanks for an unforgettable trip!) our itinerary included the visit of a Tango-Show in Buenos Aires. I was keen to see the Tango and not the show, to be honest… It is common to combine Dinner & Tango (superb concept, by the way) and we chose the “Tango Porteño” at the Porteño Theatre on Corrientes, formerly a cinema-theatre owned by Metro Goldwyn Meyer.

The place is big (like so many things in Argentina…); all the tables are well laid (you can chose to either come just for the Tango, or include dinner); the food is delicious, wine good and the ambience perfect to immerse oneself back to the golden decade of the 1940s, when Tango had its heyday. For over an hour and a half, we are taken back in time, to a glamorous Buenos Aires, full of passion & love.

I am surprised by the staging, orchestra, dancers, singers, costumes, music – all is of fantastic quality – I am dazzled by the moves, the energy, accuracy, flow, dynamism, elegance, passion… There is this one scene, modern, where the performer dances blindfolded (!) with her lover… we witness the utmost perfect, and sensual, declaration of love of two top performers who seem to read each other’s minds constantly, not one movement has room for failure, a mastery of bodies that provokes in me pure admiration and stir the humble feeling of being so privileged to experience this breathtaking show. And wanting to share it immediately with my family, especially with my daughter, who is devoted to dancing, singing and spectacles of any description.

Buenos Aires and Tango: thank you for a more extraordinary encounter with my inner passion for music and dance. I´ll be back, that is a promise! I know that I have just had a glimpse of a great city and part of its culture, and crave more!

There are more Tango places, of course, that our office in Argentina recommends, such as Tango Gardel, El Viejo Almacén, and Rojo Tango at the Faena Hotel – what a place!

It is impossible to separate Buenos Aires from the culture of Tango: you can feel it, hear it and sense Tango on every corner… next time I´ll take lessons and give it a try myself!

Wine-tasting in Buenos Aires


As the saying goes: “When in Rome…”

It would have been churlish of us not to have spent at least one night concentrating on one of Argentina’s finest, and probably most famous, exports – and tourist attractions – this was a ‘fam’ trip, afterall. Research, research…

So we descended the metallic spiral staircase of El Querandí restaurant (www.querandi.com.ar) in downtown Buenos Aires, to the wine cellar called La Cava, for an evening of deep appreciation of one of the finer things in life.

The evening was hosted by the affable, skinny and funny Sebastián, an Argentine sommelier in his late 20s who wore his knowledge lightly and had a Roman nose apt for his job.

With him, we tasted three wines in all, aided by a map of Argentina projected on the wall, which helpfully explained the three main wine-growing regions in the country: the North, the Centre and the South. Each region produces different types of wines – nearly all of them more alcoholic than other countries – with different-tasting varieties of the same grape in some cases.

To give you an idea of just how important wine is to Argentina these days, you need to know that it’s the world’s 5th-largest exporter and 7th-largest producer, generating an estimated $600 million for the economy every year, with over 1,300 wineries employing hundreds of thousands of people.

Now, to get an idea of how important wine is to the average Argentine, you need to know that they rank 8th in the world’s top drinkers (although Sebastián said 6th, I checked and it’s 8th – no surprise perhaps, in the porteño exaggeration), knocking back around 30 litres each a year. That’s quite a bit.

We were introduced to the Torrontés grape , which I hadn’t tasted before. The one we had was La Pumila, a green-tinged white wine that was refreshing when combined with a nibble of meat, but too acidic for my linking. Interestingly, when we were in the Salta region later on the trip, we were invited to try a different Torrontés and it was sweeter. I preferred the second one.

Then came a Pinot Noir called Malma, which had some body and some kick, and would gone down all-too-easily on a sunny day for lunch. It comes from the southern Patagonian wine-growing region, from the NQN bodega, which can be visited in the famous Neuquén wine region.

Passing along via another nibble provided by an excellent waiter, we moved on to my preferred territory of the dark, richer reds: Finca Intimayo from the Mendoza region, the central part of the country that produces really what many now regard as the world’s best Malbecs. This was the highlight of the night for me. Excellent bouquet – you can’t help get into the terminology…  — not too sharp, not too heavy, an astringency that played on the palate, leaving you with a delicious, lingering taste. Following a glass of that, we then passed on to the main course, a fine – and almost mandatory in Argentina – steak.

Gabriel Nicolai, Manager of Metropolitan Touring Argentina showing us how it's done

All in all, an excellent way to pass an evening among friends: a bit of learning, a bit of tasting, good food, cool decor, fine wine. Salud!

The Iguazu Falls are awe inspiring!


Iguazu

Iguazu

Visiting Iguazu from the Argentinian side is just perfect. The panoramic views from the upper circuit are amazing, you can get pretty close to the waterfalls and nature as well (from the Upper Iguazu River).

You will be thrilled with the wonderful opportunities this place offers to get a zillion photos of different views every step along the trails (keep these lovely images and sounds in your brain as well!!).

When taking the train trip along the Upper Iguazu River a huge adventure is about to begin. It is certainly quite difficult to understand how the calm Upper Iguazu River that goes with you along the trail suddenly changes its form and takes shape of an impressive and massive waterfall -the Devil’s Throat- which is a mixture of noises, views and energy. An indescribable experience not to be missed!!

Las Cataratas de Iguazú son impresionantes!


Iguazu

Iguazu

Visitar Iguazú desde el lado Argentino es una experiencia única. Las panorámicas  desde el circuito superior son formidables, permite un acercamiento importante a las cascadas y la naturaleza (del alto río Iguazú).

Estarás fascinado por las magníficas oportunidades que este lugar ofrece pues podrás realizar innumerables fotos una muy distinta de otra a cada paso por el sendero (guarda estas encantadoras imágenes y sonidos en tu memoria también!).

Al tomar el recorrido del tren en el alto río Iguazú comenzarás una gran aventura! Es muy difícil comprender cómo aquel tranquilo río que circula junto a ti a lo largo del sendero de repente cambia su fuerza y forma, tornándose en una impresionante cascada gigante -la Garganta del Diablo- que ofrece una mezcla de sonidos, vistas y energía. Una experiencia indescriptible que no puedes perder!!
