Christmas in Patagonia – and a Xmas Recipe to save the day!

The little town of Patagonia gets ready for Christmas day as I type this while Steve and I snuggle up in our new home after another long day at the Vivapura warehouse.
Tomorrow we will awaken to a frosty morning in the dessert followed by a warmer Christmas than we are used to! We are looking forward to a Skype call home to Scotland where by time difference magic will allow us to join our families as they finish off their Christmas pudding!
For me this time of year is about being in touch with the ones you love.
I hope this blog reaches those we most want to connect with.
As we continue on this adventure into the unknown we so appreciate your love and support from afar.
We send our love from across the oceans and want them to know we are thinking of them every day.
