The Breathtaking Beauty Of Patagonia
At the point where the Earth “ends,” on the edge of the world, is where this
magic and mysterious land begins, full of unimaginable beauty.
Patagonia has been inhabited at least since the year 10,500 B.C., but was
discovered more recently by colonists. Nonetheless, this part of the planet has
always been a source of amazement, of unexplainable beauty, and indomitable
This is why famous British photographer Andy Lee settled on Patagonia for his
latest project: Patagonia Dreaming I.
Visiting the most inhospitable landscapes of Chilean Patagonia, Lee captured
surreal images using infrared photography, his trademark technique.
Feast your eyes on these wonderful landscapes, and don’t miss the previous works
from this photographer: which we covered on Bored Panda previously.

A Couple Visited Over 50 Countries By A Van Spending Only 8 Dollars A Day
We are young travel bloggers from Poland who did not have a lot of money but
we wanted to see the world. We bought an old van for $600, painted it, took
tents and supplies of food and just took off.
In 6 years we visited more than 50 countries and we traveled more than 150.000
km on 5 continents. We never paid for accommodation (we sleep in the van and in
tents) and we eat what we cook. Here’s a short story, in pictures.
UPDATE: Since many of you were asking how we manage to travel spending only $8 a
day, we wanted to explain it a bit further for you. The main cost is the fuel –
that’s why other people travel with us and share fuel costs. We travel slowly
and often stay in one place for a few days, so we save on fuel. Also lots of
people are ordering a postcard from our trip – they get a postcard from a
beautiful place, and we get the money for one liter of fuel
We do not pay for accommodation because we sleep in the van or in tents – on
beaches, cliffs, mountains. Often, strangers invite us to their homes. Poles
living abroad often help us. The food we buy in supermarkets and eat what we
cook – we do not pay for restaurants. For example, in Australia we ate kangaroo
steaks because it was the cheapest meat.
When the car breaks down – we repair it, beacause during the trip we have
learned how to do this. And when we need mechanics help, they very often do not
take money from us because they are impressed with our trip and want to help us
and be a part of our adventure. We have our own electric shower and 150l water
tank on the roof so we don’t pay for showers. Sometimes we just use rivers or
lakes. Between continents we transport the car on the ship. It is very simple.
We sometimes have sponsors – when we have to spend a lot of money on something.
For example, the transport of car across the ocean to Australia and the US –
sponsors paid for it in exchange for their advertising on the van. Logos on a
car is advertising for such companies, which helped us to transport the car
through the oceans. Our blog is the most popular travel blog in Poland – now we
work as bloggers and thats how we earn money. And thanks to that we can be still
on the road because we just need a laptop and internet to work. We published two
books about our trips and they give us some money. We do photo sessions for
companies or doing advertising clips in exotic locations and companies pay us
for it. We sometimes also work as graphic designers and IT specialist (online).
