I know my Bucket List is a little out of control. But that doesn’t mean I don’t still approach each new experience with a huge sense of enthusiasm and anticipation.
The first part of 2016 was particularly good for ticking items off my Bucket List. I got to witness dawn off Cape Horn. I attended to the 100th running of the Indy 500. I went horse trekking in the Andes. I looked down on London from the top of the Shard. I completed my goal of visiting all six accessible Hawaiian islands. And so much more.
All that being said, one of the real highlights was sailing the Strait of Magellan in Patagonia. The landscape is bleak and breathtaking. And the sight of the southern sun shimmering on the water or a rainbow is simply mesmerising.
While separating Tierra del Fuego from mainland Chile, the 354-mile-long Strait connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Until the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914, it provided the main shipping route between the two oceans.
