Hi, found this link on Maxima's daytime-fashion thread: royals.web-log.nl: Royale activiteiten (scroll down).

She looks a bit hysterical, drained on two of the pictures. Do you know the reason? Anything went wrong during the trip?
TRH have concluded their visit to Chile and Antarctica and returned in The Netherlands this morning.

The Benelux Royals Message Board: They also bought a big ranch near Bariloche, Patagonia
Wow! I didn't know that they were interested in buying property in Argentina. It sounds lovely. I wonder if they purchased it as a place for holidays, or if they purchased it for one of Maxima's relatives? I would love to see photos.
more video

One more video, click on the link, then the ROYALTY-tab, the first video is from Antarctica

As for the property in Argentina, it was bought as an investment, not a vacationhome (for the royals).
Videos are lovely..Thank you for sharing with us.
I watched the videos. Thank you for the videos, Carlota, Prinsesbeagle, and Pirrar. Princess Maxima and Prince W-A seems to have a funny side. I thought it was funny and cute when Maxmia came out of the underground and hugged W-A.
