- Good Friday in Bariloche We finally made it to Bariloche after a 20 hour coach journey and the national transportation strike. And it was defo worth it. A mix of lakes, mountains and Scandinavian Ski town influence, Bariloche was our favourite place so far. Posted by chrisnrach2015 in Our Latin America Adventure | Apr 5, 2015
- TRANSPORT, TOURS AND TANGOOur morning at La Bamba started pretty much the same way as the previous day ended. Overeating.
