We don't look as exhausted as we feel! After 4 days of hiking, camping and constant awe, it's time to head back to Punta Arenas and get a good night's sleep on an actual bed. Completing the W trek was one of the highlights of our world trip. Even if you're not big hikers (we had only done 1 multi-day hike before this) it's worth getting out there and giving it a go. It makes you feel alive ?? #wtrek #complete #otrek #hiking #hikers #acomplishment #achievement #goal #goals #hike #hikeday #outdoortherapy #exercise #feelalive #trysomethingnew #goforit #patagonia #patagoniachile #chile #torres #torresdelpaine #travelcouple #bestbuddies #love #adventureofalifetime #worldtravel #travelguide #traveltips #camping
