Mar 31, 2006 - Bariloche

Hello, we have moved on from Bariloche whilst writing this but we loved it there! The town is so beautiful facing the lake and we had three days of clear blue skies and bright sunshine! Not only this but our hostel was like a little cosy log cabin so heaven! We finally lost the dog that had been accompanying us, and jackie and i went our separate ways for a day (as we wanted to do different things - no fights yet!!). So in the morning i went up to Cerro Catedral (Cathedral Mountain), and as i was short on time i decided to be lazy and avoid...

Mar 29, 2006 - BA to Bariloche!

Just a few last photos from BA as they wouldnt all fit on the last entry! We had a really fun last night out, where we met two guys, one a film producer, and one in a band (pretty famous in South America!). It was quite funny as our spanish is still pretty shocking but we just about managed a flow of conversation! After final drinks of tea and coffee at 6 in the morning we returned home. The next day we went for a final visit into the city and i decided to go for it and get my neck pierced. Luckily the pain only lasted a short while as...

Mar 21, 2006 - Bariloche med BJERGE og EVENTYR!

Saa er vi landet i Bariloche. 34 timer i bus var det der sku til. Meget stille og roligt... hmm...! Vi er her nu, og der er virkelig nok at tage sig til! Ekstremsport, hiking og et natteliv der er ret saa kendt paa disse kanter! Super! Thomas og Joachim bestemte sig for at tage paa et flerdages trek i bjergene. Den fik virkelig ikke for lidt. Thomas og jeg tog direkte fra fest med den danske gruppe her i Bariloche til bjergene for at komme i gang. Det gik stejlt op af bakke til at starte med, og taget vores mangel paa sovn i betragtning...

Mar 11, 2006 - Legenden ueber alte Schaetze

11. Maerz Bariloche ist das Skt. Moritz von Argentinien. Im Winter kommen hier so viele Brasilianer zum Ski fahren das sie nur noch von Brasi-loche reden. Der Ort selber ist wahnsinnig touristisch. Ein Andenkenladen reiht sich an den anderen, dazwischen viele Schokolade- Laeden. Bariloche ist weltberuehmt fuer Schokolade- mir schmeckt Rittersport besser ;-)Ich finde eine super Unterkunft 20 Km ausserhalb von Bariloche. Wunderschoen an einem See gelegen mit Privatstrand und Hund. Von meinem Zimmer aus habe ich einen wunderschoenen Blick auf...

Mar 11, 2006 - Bariloche - Catedral Skying Resort

13/3 Got up at 6am because we had to walk out of town to get bus at 8.30. Good day for travel as it's raining and overcast. As usual babies to the side and front of us. At the border we had to get off the bus, not a scuby what was going on. But we made it into Argentina OK. Got into Bariloche late in the day. No mob to greet us. Good job as we have no money and no ATM in site. So, it's late in the day, it's cold, and we have 3km walk into the town, it all looks up hill, but at least it's not raining. We think we know which way to go (where...

Mar 10, 2006 - Minus 18kg Reisegepaeck - 18kg less Lugagge

"Puerto Eden" so hiess unser Zuhause waehrend den drei Tagen und Naechten in denen wir mit einem Frachtschiff den patagonischen Kanal von Puerto Natales nach Puerto Montt fuhren. Wir teilten uns das Schiff nicht nur mit 162 Passagieren plus Besatzung, sondern auch noch mit Ladungen voller Schafe, Pferde und Rinder. Diese Schiffsfahrt war ein schoenes Erlebnis, auch wenn sich leider das Wetter von der regnerischen und eisigkalten Seite zeite. Jeder, der eine auf dem Schiff gekaufte Pille gegen Seekrankheit schluckte, ueberstand die 13...

¡Vamos!

Mar 5, 2006 - Bariloche/Patagonia

Hola! I am trying to cram as much as possible into the last few weeks of my trip so I don't know when I will be able to add more photos as that is very time consuming. I am in Bariloche, on Lake Nahuel Huapi in the Lake District of Patagonia. I'm not sure I can overstate how beautiful it is here. I took a three day trek bginning at Cerro Torre, just east of town, this week. There is a "Refugio" Hut System here so some of the routes are a little crowded at times, but still nice. The mountains are quite rugged and they are not fond of...

Argentina 06

Feb 17, 2006 - El Chaltén - Bariloche, la route 40

Depuis El Chaltén, j'hésite un peu sur la suite de mon voyage. Je pourrais prendre la Carretera australe au Chili, mais c'est long et complique. Je me décide finalement a prendre d'un seul coup un bus pour remonter bien au Nord, plus de mille kilomètres, jusqu'a Bariloche. Enfin, d'un seul coup, c'est vite dit... Je dois en réalité prendre de bus, le premier depuis El Chaltén jusqu'a Perito Moreno (la ville, pas le glacier), puis un autre le lendemain de Perito Moreno a Bariloche. Je demande combien d'heures c'est, mais impossible d'avoir...

Feb 10, 2006 - San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

This morning were given the keys to the BMW F650GS Dakar motorcyle we would be riding. My first thought when I saw it was that they had assigned me to a brand new bike right out of the crate! In fact it had 45,000km on it but was in such superb condition the only way you could tell it had ever been ridden was by the odometer. Once again my expectations were surpassed by Ayres Adventures attention to detail. The motorcycle was ready and waiting for us so we naturally had to take a little tour of the town and the surrounding area. The town...

Jan 30, 2006 - The best view in the world

We have been around the world and travelled through quite a few countries but today we both agreed we witnessed our finest view so far. The vista from the the top of Cerro Campanario was in a word sublime. We stood looking out across the clear blue lakes and at the backdrop of snow topped mountains in awe at what nature can create. It truly was a spectacular place and one that will stay etched on our minds for a long time. The ride on the chairlift up the mountain was part of what is known as the 'Circuito Chico' a 64km loop around some of...

Jan 29, 2006 - Over the Andes to Bariloche

Coming back from Chiloé on my way to Argentina, I passed through the Lake District once more and it is beautiful. Fantastic scenery, splendid weather, the smell of grass and pine forests. It is summer of course and busy by Chilean standards, but by European ones it certainly is not and there is lots to do too. Really a good place for a holiday. The Chilean border crossing point is at Pajaritos, some sixteen kilometres ahead of the actual border. All in all the procedure goes quite quickly, first the police for passport checks and then...

Jan 29, 2006 - Cerro Catedral

After sleeping half the day to recover form the night before we headed out to Cerro Cathedral. We would not have gone to visit a cathedral 18k's out of town, had it not been that we knew its not a building but a rock formation whose spiky peaks inspired the name. We took a cable car and a chairlift to the top of the range where we got great views across the lake but more intersting was the chance to stand on snow in sandals & shorts and throw snowballs at each other in the middle of summer. I was just wishing I had a sledge to complete the...
