Week 31 – How to summarize what we lived for 7 months ?! It is hard and I’m still thinking about how I will answer the question people will ask in a few days: “How was it ?!”
Week 30 – We are spending our last week in Santiago where we have organised the sale of our car. That’s it, we are no longer overlanders but just backpackers… with a lot of luggage!
Week 29 – Rich in history and myths, Chiloe was a very pleasant island to visit.
Week 28 – I have the feeling that we did not enjoy this beautiful road as we should have…
Week 27 – This week we reached the Carretera Austral in Chile, landscapes are so different!
Week 26 – This week we crossed for the last time the border between Argentina and Chile. Over the last 5 months we have spent 80 days in Argentina, the country of beef and parillas (barbecues), but there is a lot more than that and it is the ideal moment to review it!
Week 25 – This week we met the 2 big guys of the Argentinian South Patagonia: el señor Glaciar Perito Moreno and el señor Fitz Roy.
Week 24 – This week I wanted to talk about the very good quality of the museums I’ve visited in Tierra del Fuego and Punta Arenas. But something happened…
Week 23 – This immersion in Tierra del Fuego (with the city of Ushuaia on the Argentinian side) and in the Magallanes province (with the city of Punta Arenas on the Chilean side) allowed me to discover how much the will of the governments in place in the 19th century was strong to gain new territories.
Week 22 – Ushuaia is the southernmost point we had planned to go to during our trip, and probably the most southerly I will ever reach in my all life! It was mythical for me and, again, I’m not disappointed!
Week 21 – We spent the week in the city of Puerto Natales and in THE FABULOUS Torres del Paine park!
Week 20 – Here we are! I’ve been dreaming about this part of the world for years and here it is, here I am, I am in Patagonia!
Week 19 – Since we have acquired the car, we have camp more often than we have stayed in hotels. The rooftop tent is in fact really comfortable and very easy to open and pack. We don’t regret our choice… for the moment anyway, but we will have to see further south in Patagonia where the winds might discourage us from staying outside!
Week 18 – Having left Pucón in Chile, we crossed the border and spent the week discovering the wonderful Argentinian side of Lake District.
Week 17 – This week, we drove in the Sur Chico region of Chile. We are now surrounded by green mountains, volcanoes and dark blue lakes.
Week 16 – These last days have been basically focusing on driving south toward Patagonia, the main goal of our trip.
Week 15 – A little extra again! There’s a lot to see around San Pedro de Atacama, the nature being so aride and extreme. We decided to go to few of the Lagunas south of the city.
Week 15 – Arrived in the northern part of Argentina, we decided to cross west to Chile in order to join the town of San Pedro de Atacama. The crossing of the Andean plateau at 4800masl was spectacular!
Week 14 – Continuing further north of Salta, we visited the Jujuy province. On the road of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, you cross little indigenous villages made of adobe houses all surrounded by incredibly colorful rocks!
Week 14 – Doing a little exception to my rule of publishing only “1 pic a week”, I really want to share how diverse was the province of Salta in the north of Argentina.
