Day 2 At Kolsay Lakes National Park

There were two lakes at the Kolsay Lakes National Park. The host drove us to the first one. The car first stopped at a passport control office. We needed to register. It was true that we were the first ones this year. But I didn't understand why I met some Russian travellers inside the national … Continue reading Day 2 At Kolsay Lakes National Park

A Two-Night Trip at Kolsay Lakes National Park

Woke up at 4am to catch a taxi to the bus terminus for the Lake Kaindy trip. The information centre arranged the trip for us except this taxi trip of course. It was a one-night trip. We would spend a night at a huge guesthouse run by a family in Saty. According to the information … Continue reading A Two-Night Trip at Kolsay Lakes National Park

Post Post-Long-Term-Backpacking-Depression Came Kazakhstan

After I finished my so-called 'long term' backpacking trip in South America (I met someone who had been backpacking for 20 years in Peru so my trip was really nothing), I suffered from post long term backpacking depression. I'd stay at home, sit on my sofa and start to cry because I missed it so … Continue reading Post Post-Long-Term-Backpacking-Depression Came Kazakhstan

My Last Destination – Lake Titicaca, Bolivia

I woke up early for the Lake Titicaca Bolivia trip. The bus was late. (I have mentioned the bus being late a couple of times in my blog for this trip. I guess this is a common thing there. After all, I wasn't travelling in Deutschland. :D) There were only three of us in the tour … Continue reading My Last Destination – Lake Titicaca, Bolivia

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia, Here I Came

Here I was, waiting for the plane from Puerto Montt (yes, again but stayed there for one night only because there was no road to go up to Chile and probably the ticket from Chaiten to San Pedro de Atacama was too expensive) to San Pedro de Atacama. The morning in Puerto Montt was so … Continue reading Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia, Here I Came

Nature Stays Forever… We Do Not

It was very sunny in Chaiten. I had a plan in mind - Pumalin National Park, then go back to Puerto Montt and then to Puerto Varas. Planning is good. But who knows if you can really implement it?   The town wasn't really as bad as what the Londoners told me. I think it … Continue reading Nature Stays Forever… We Do Not

Continued With My Adventure in Chiloe, Chile

It wasn't really an adventure. Chiloe was very quiet. It was more like a time for me to relax and learn to slow down. I was used to this kind of backpacking lifestyle by that time and I really enjoyed it. People want to earn a lot of money to have freedom to do what … Continue reading Continued With My Adventure in Chiloe, Chile

I Was On CNN Chile

I left Puerto Natales. I gave the hostel staff a thank you card thanking them for their kindness especially Pamela, the cleaning lady. She offered me food and she showed her care to me and looked after me. The Puerto Natales domestic airport was in the middle of nowhere. The landscape and scenery were great. … Continue reading I Was On CNN Chile

Kindness Was All Around In Puerto Natales And Torres del Paine, Chile

I woke up early to catch the bus from Ushuaia, Argentina to Punta Arenas, Chile. Then I got on the bus and then crossed the border as usual. (I like the words 'as usual'. It does remind me of my 'nomadic' life. :)) The wind was very strong that day. Our bus was supposed to … Continue reading Kindness Was All Around In Puerto Natales And Torres del Paine, Chile

Last Day In Ushuaia

Like I said previously, I joined two boat trips today. My roommate in the hostel showed me photos of the lighthouse boat trip that she went on so I decided to go. I wanted to visit the 'H' Island as well. The guy who tried to sell me yesterday told me about that island and … Continue reading Last Day In Ushuaia
