It’s going south


After I did kind of organisational things the last few days, I finally took off again by using the night bus down to Puerto Varas. Because the only available bus was a Bus Cama (with beds), I didn’t even have to choose. And it was really almost a bed :-).

Just after leaving the bus station in Santiago, we ended up in a traffic jam. And the reason for this traffic jam wasn’t nice at all: A crash between a bus and a truck. With mixed feelings we drove on. Luckily nothing further happened and after a bit more than 12 hours, we arrived in Puerto Varas. I was happy to find a hostel almost within minutes.

On Saturday I wil cycle further to Puerto Montt where I will board the ferry to Puerto Chacabuco. From there, will cycle to Cohaique within a day or two. That’s the plan. Will see what reality says to that ;-).

PS: From Puerto Varas, I have a great view on two volcanoes: Osorno (see also Picture below) and the at the moment still active Volcano Puyehue Cordon Caulle.

I think, that it is the perfect speed to move but still be in touch with the world and the people which live there. And I'm very happy, that my girlfriend Susanna is joining me now on those adventures. If you are interested in other journeys we did so far, please also check my website www.biketravel.net.
