Over the many years I have run La Margarita it never fails to amaze me in these days of Internet, Facebook, video games and Instagram how kids can immediately forget about these things when they get to the estancia. In the case of Ollie and Cameron the two children of the Walker family it was the same refreshing story.
Ben, their dad, sent me an email about a possible stay on the estancia in Nov 2014. I remember communicating with him about the children and I mentioned that there is no doubt that once kids got here they wouldn’t
If you are thinking of upping the family and going on a world walkabout for a year but are hesitant have a look at the Walkers blog. No doubt you will be getting the atlas out and planning your own trip very soon
When the time to leave came as predicated the children didn’t want to leave and protested with tears on theirs faces that they wanted to stay. But of course leave they did and there is no doubt that although they have wonderful memories of the estancia they will also have some fantastic memories of the places they have visited
since they were with us- what an adventure bravo for Ben and Adele in giving this wonderful gift to their children
Here is the link to the Walkers blog about their adventure and their write up of their visit to La Margarita:
If you read this Ben and family thanks for coming to La Margarita and making us a part of your wonderful adventure. Have a wonderful time in New Zealand and try to say hello to my son who lives there!
