Ternaround combines extensive travel expertise in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego with authentic travel tales from the heart and mind of a wandering soul.
My first visit to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego in 2006 marked the beginning of a severe addiction to its mystical character and rugged beauty. Ever since I roamed and explored, I found and got lost many times. I got to know its people, its nature, its wildness and its authenticity. Today – next to my base in Holland – it’s Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego, Argentina) that I call home. I think I can say I know Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego; I’m just a couple of years behind in jotting it all down. Let me take you here through my stories and photos. Or even better, come and visit me and you’ll get the personalised tour.
As I do like to wander I won’t restrict myself entirely to Patagonia’s boundaries. If it’s wild, inspiring and beautiful, I’m easily tempted to go. Following in the migratory patterns of the Arctic tern, I’ll add a slice of the (Ant)arctic and also some worldwide globetrotting. And who knows what else is ahead. I have a bucket list of wild and adventurous destinations and I am free as a bird. We’ll see where the wind takes us.
I combine my addiction to Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego with my passion for road trips, hiking and outdoor adventure. In fact it’s a match made in heaven: possibilities are unlimited. Yet also here I do wander and explore other destinations for inspiration and experience.
Maps initiate a desire in me to venture into the unknown. When something whispers adventure, I’m in for it. I like slow travel and gravel roads. Though not exactly a natural mountain goat coming from the lowlands, I do enjoy hiking in pristine nature and up a mountain. When it comes to outdoor adventure, anything like kayaking, wild camping, snorkeling, camp fires, glacier hiking, boating, gazing at stars, wildlife encounters and rafting makes me happy. All for the love of the outdoors. It clears your mind from worries, sorrows and daily hassle.
I believe life is not static unless we are. I need to be on the move to feel alive. I need the fresh air of wild nature, interesting people and new places to discover. But it’s not just about travelling. Foremost it’s about being, and that is 100% location independent. I thrive on daily inspiration, positive energy, movement, a connection and a spark. Wherever I am.
Life is a continuous journey. I try to collect moments, not things. And will share them here. They may be liberating and inspirational yet down to earth. Provide food for thought. Spark lust for life. Touch your heart. Inspire you on your own journey.
Wander. Explore. Get lost. Because when nothing is certain, everything is possible.
