My most recent trip was definitely a journey of extremes. Five countries in 30 days...from sea level in the Caribbean to the highest city in the world...through the largest salt desert in the world to the driest desert in the world...through the Andes mountains to the poorest and most isolated country in South America, one in which I found one of the richest and most colorful cultures and people I have ever witnessed...through South America's best wine country to one of the most vibrant and enchanting capital cities on the planet. Highlights were far too many to list: the backroads and hidden paradise beaches of the Dominican Republic, the colorful traditions, people and awe-inspiring landscapes of the Bolivian highlands, the mysterious and magical Salt Desert of Uyuni, the unearthly scenery of Chile's Atacama Desert, the vineyards of Mendoza, Argentina, the colonial gem town of Colonia de Sacramento, Uruguay...and of course, the charm, vibrance and cosmopolitan character of Buenos Aires. If there was one thing that was reinforced to me during these travels...it's that the world is far too big to experience in one lifetime. In the words of St. Augustine: "The World is a book...". Well, I hope to read as many pages as I can in the time I have to do it.
