And in the end there was the beginning

So this where we come nearly full circle. I leave Interior Profundo and make my way into Montevideo to go and stay with Emanuela, a Sardinian girl that I met in Punta Ballena back in January. She has been in Uruguay for a few years and works, soon will turn to “used to work”, in…

Interior Profundo

Time to leave Tigre and all the fun I had with Violeta and her super friends. For a change I have the good fortune that the ferry from Tigre to Carmelo, in Uruguay, and the follow on coach to Montevideo is the most cost effective way to get to Mvd. The sail is rather easy…

A friend in Tigre

So this is the end of the cycling part of the trip but I still have the matter of another half months to go before I set sail for the northern hemisphere and it’s starting spring. Given that I’m moving north I hope I will not get affected too much by the incoming autumn and…

That Sydney feeling

Quite good fun in Bariloche, met so many cool people, some on the middle of their stay, some on the end, some on foot, some on bike and some like me cycling around. The traveling circus is really full of great people, special, unbound and so very detached from all those things that appear to…

El Bolson to Bariloche and around it.

So the time has come for me to leave El Bolson. I say my farewell in the evening to Victor and Tammy as thy are going to work early and, while committed, I am not planning to leave at the crack of dawn. In the morning, as it turns out, I wake up with even…

Cerro Lindo

It is the last week end of the stay in El Bolson and I finally get round to do some serious treaking. There is a wealth of treaks around El Bolson and I initially wanted to go for the one that leads to the glacier Hielo Azul. Victor however advices me not to and to…

La ruta 40 y El Bolson

So, all crazy things done and dusted and, for the matter, also the cycling, I’m packed and ready to tackle a large chunk of the legendary Ruta 40 from the comfort of a bus seat. I have people waiting for me in El Bolson, roughly 900 miles north of El Calafate for my next WorkAway…

El pueblo de la locura

El Calafate is a funny place, it does not resembles anywhere else I saw in Argentina before. ┬áIn fact it reminds me a little bit of Queenstown in New Zealand. As I get into town I see many shops advertising all sort of weird and wacky adventure experiences. After I get all my ducks in…

And then to El Calafate

Puerto Nadales did beat expectations and it is now time to leave for “la ventura” once again. Not really sure what will lay in front of me as I have been warned of uphill struggle and badly unsealed roads, but surely it will just turn out to be two or three dsays of interesting road…

Torres del Paine and other wonders of Chile

For those who like to read this is not going to be a good post. For those who like pictures it will be a bit better. It’s about the two days I spent in Puerto Nadales and the second day excursion to the Bernardo O’Higgins and Torres del Paines parks. The day I spent in…
