  • Blowin' in the windSo I was heading for Puerto Natales on the bus, so far a little disappointed with the bleak landscape of Patagonia that I had seen so far. But then things started to look up as I saw 'mountains Gandalf!' As Posted by SpannaB in Around the world in 80 songs | Feb 24, 2015
  • ChileOur last night in Argentina was spent with steak on fork and wine in hand, and the next day we left on a morning bus to head towards the Andes. The journey to Chile was a very scenic one. Leaving Posted by TomAndKat in On The Road Again... | Feb 17, 2015

  • Elqui Valley to San Pedro De Atacama We left Vicuña early and had planned a scenic route along much quieter roads. However, an hour into our journey, and half way up a very gravelly hill, we were greeted by a locked gate. With the gate Posted by Kmoz7 in South America on 2-wheels | Feb 8, 2015
  • Sydney to Santiago - Saturday, 7 February 2015Had a pretty good sleep, woke up and went over to the airport for breakfast.  Back to the hotel for a while as it was better sitting in our room than at the airport.  When we arrived at the Qantas Posted by gaddingabout in Taste of Brazil and Antarctic Adventure | Feb 7, 2015

  • Elqui valleyAfter failing to have been impressed by La Serena, whose only claim to fame is its 29 churches, we set off for Vicuña. It was an extremely fun drive with big looping turns hugging the valley, over a huge dam Posted by Kmoz7 in South America on 2-wheels | Feb 1, 2015

  • Finally left Santiago What a difference a day makes! Following another early start, the bike trouble was fixed very quickly - a loose clutch lever.

  • Valparaiso We decided we should give our bikes a bit of a test run on a slightly longer journey and Chile's financial power house of the late 1800s, Valparaiso, seemed like the ideal town. The 120km drive was mixed. Some of Posted by Kmoz7 in South America on 2-wheels | Jan 21, 2015
  • Drake Shake or Drake Lake?Every evening during the voyage we'd been left a chocolate each in our cabin by Marina. We'd decided to return the compliment with a bar of chocolate from us.
