Hitchhiking with the surfboards Big waves I finally got a picture of him surfing
Pichilemu is fantastic… the bus ride over here, was one of my favorite so far. There are so many trees on the road to the beach, it feels like you are lost in a never ending forest. Nobody had any idea where we were going to stay, so we hitchhiked from the center of town… Read More Pichilemu
Chile has the best landscapes I´ve seen yet. There are so many vineyards between Valparaiso and Santiago, I wish we could have stopped at a few, or at least one. Should of, could of, would of… We arrived in Santiago in the middle of the afternoon, and headed to my Tia´s house. Nicole and I… Read More Santiago
Steep hills, great views and lots of character. I don’t know what it is, but this port city reminds me of San Francisco. My legs have been getting a great workout climbing up and down the hundreds of stairs in this city. Chris and I got lost a couple times, but people are so nice… Read More Valparaiso
It’s been more than a month and a half since we’ve been at the coast. La Serena is beautiful! I was super excited to see a Moai from Rapa Nui (Easter Island) at the archeological museum. Chris was stoaked to see the ocean, but it’s going to be at least a week until we get… Read More La Sirena
I really enjoyed Bolivia, but I was really looking forward to seeing Chile. Let me tell you, this place is expensive! Especially San Pedro de Atacama. It’s the Chilean desert, and man is it hot. Our hostel was super nice and we spent our days chillin’ on hammocks to get a break from the sun.
Llamas, flamingos, twisters and geysers…day 2 was a long one, but I saw several things I had never seen before… Like the “Arbol de piedra.” We stayed in a hotel made of salt on day 1, and drove for several hours on day 2. Way too many! On our jouney we passed by at least… Read More Salt Flats- Day 2
The salt flats were great, but the best part of this trip was at night. Stargazing at the Salar is epic! Never in my life have I seen so many shooting stars…between 15-20! Incredible 😉
The train cementery was the first stop on our salt flats tour. Basically it’s like a train junkyard, but it’s fun to climb on things and take pictures there!
The food here sucks and the people in town aren’t really friendly. There are several companies that offer tours to the salt flats, so we shopped around for the best deal. We went with “Expediciones Latitudes.” and paid about $120 for our 2 day trip. The only con- our tour guide was shitty!
There isn’t much to say about Oruro. We only went there to catch the train to Uyuni, and in my opinion staying there one night is one too many. The train on the other hand was suprisingly more than pleasant. I highly recommend eating the filet mignon, while watching the sunset. Yum yum in my… Read More Oruro
