Glaciar Perito Moreno - Jaime Davila

When you’re on the road for a constant period of time or have traveled a lot sometimes things become mundane. Oh another cathedral, oh another mountain, oh another waterfall and so on. Every so often though you come across something that just blows you away in a way you yourself don’t even understand. Something that makes you question your place in the world we live in. That was the case for me when I visited Glacier Perito Moreno.

I had heard about it from many people that I must see it and that I will love it. I often hate hearing a lot of praise for a certain site because I get scared it won’t live up to the hype. No I’m not one who cares if it’s on the beaten path or not. It’s just that it really is a horrible feeling when you don’t love something that everyone else seems to love. Oh & it’s okay to not love something everyone else loves. I still get shit for not loving India (read the comments) and I don’t care.
