One of my most memorable travel days took place in Patagonia at Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina. I stayed on a local ranch called Estancia Alice to photograph ranch life in the region. The ranch itself had idealistic views that looked like it was straight out of the pages of a Conde Nast magazine.
I have always loved to ride horses but rarely get the chance since I live in the city. One of the gauchos working on the farm offered to take us on a horseback ride in the late afternoon and no one else was interested but I hopped at the chance. The “short” ride ended up turning into a three-hour journey riding around the ranch through a local river and ending up seeing the most spectacular view of a glacier. It proves that some of the best travel experiences happen off the beaten path if you are willing to say yes to an adventure.
