A couple of months ago, I wrote a blog about my dawn visit to Cape Horn in February of this year. What a dramatic and memorable experience that was!
What I didn’t mention in my previous post, was the event held later that morning to celebrate our adventure at the End of the World. Those who had never before been to Cape Horn, could take part in a ceremony claimed to make you an honorary ‘Fuegian’, or an inhabitant of Tierra del Fuego.
All those brave (or foolhardy) enough, could commemorate their achievement by being ‘baptised’ using sea water collected from the point (or close to the point, in our case) where the Atlantic, Pacific and Southern (Antarctic) Oceans meet.
Of course, Rich and I were well up for it! As were a couple of our friends.
If you’re the sort of person that loves delving into ‘culture’ on your travels, why not sign up and follow my continuing Journeys here at Jaspa’s Journal (on WordPress or Bloglovin’), or through my website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr?
And if that’s not enough for you, the first Jaspa’s Journey adventure, The Great Migration, is now available in both paperback and ebook formats from Amazon and other online booksellers! The first two sequels are scheduled to be released by Speaking Volumes later this year.
